I’m continuing on with The Runaway. I’m very fond of this book, especially because a dear friend painted the cover image for me and I think it’s absolutely beautiful, just like sweet Ciarrai. By the way that’s pronounced Kee-a-ree
Ciarrai is running away from a past that’s still breathing down his neck. Jack has no past, his memory wiped in the accident that killed his parents. They meet and their lives move forward like stones skimming the surface of the water, dipping into memories that want to surface and those that want to lie buried forever.
In this clip, Jack calls around unexpectedly to find Ciarrai cooking in the kitchen. That, in itself, wasn’t unusual but what Ciarrai was wearing certainly was
It was a multi-coloured silk kimono. Delicate flowers wound their way
along slender branches and cherry blossoms fell like rain. The silk sighed and
swayed as he moved, sliding over the curves of his body in a way that made Jack
feel tight. He’d caught up part of his hair and secured it with a silver clip at the
back of his head, while the rest fell in golden waves, swishing when he turned his
head. Jack bit his lip.
Ciarrai seemed taller, somehow, and it took a few minutes for Jack to
realise he was wearing feathered, black, high heeled slippers. Fucking shit.
