The snippet comes from my latest release Enigma III – Friends and Family
Blurb: Silver and River are healing, but both are still struggling to reconcile Silver’s life before his time at the Theatre De La Vie, with after. It doesn’t help that Ariel keeps coming around and causing trouble. When he encourages Silver to collect Ben from school he unleashes a can of worms that could easily have had fatal consequences.
Another example of Ariel’s brand of wisdom. The two have been talking about Asher, who stepped in front of a knife for Silver in Fighting the Man Silver hasn’t been able to talk to River about what happened, because he knows that, deep down, River believes Silver cheated on him, and he hates Asher for it, if not himself. He therefore has never cried for his friend and lover – until now.
“No.” I feel hollow, empty. There’s a hole inside me that’s been there since the day Asher died. I haven’t been able to look at it, to acknowledge it’s there because if I had I’d have had to look at what used to be there. Now I can’t ignore it anymore. It’s filled up with tears and I’m drowning in it. “How could I cry? How could I let River see me like this? To know why? He knows about Ash, of course he does, and he knows how I felt about him but… knowing isn’t the same as seeing. How could I do that to him?”
“How could you do it to yourself?”
