Excerpt from Soul Searcher:
Faith ran faster and further than she could ever remember running. She closed her mind off to all the thoughts that were nibbling at her brain. She expertly maneuvered her way through the thick brush of the forest. She didnâ€™t know where she was runningâ€¦she just knew she had to keep moving.
She dodged branches that hung low. She hurdled rocks and fallen limbs with a grace she didnâ€™t know she possessed. She felt motivated to get the hell out of this area.
Suddenly, she thought she saw the glint of the sun reflecting off something shiny in the distance. She thought it might be a window. She headed towards the reflection and hoped that whatever she was seeing held a person with a weapon. She wouldnâ€™t feel safe until she was armed.
Just then, she heard something rustle in the nearby fallen leaves. She turned her head to look, but kept up her quick sprint. She didnâ€™t see anything around her but her loss of focus caused her to miss a ditch that was covered by overgrown vegetation.
Her shoe caught in the thick weeds and she lost her balance. For the second time today, she was falling. This time thick, strong hands grasped her shoulders and caught her with ease. She looked up at the face of her rescuer and a ruggedly handsome face stared down at her.
His dark eyes bore into her and her ragged breath caught in her throat. He had the exact same eyes as the lion.
