THE LOVE TALISMAN
Soul Mate #2
Soul Mate #2
Morgan K. Wyatt
Released on December 25, 2015
A missing in action boyfriend isn’t cutting it for Ellie. Still, she tries to make the best of things.
A well-paying job that includes plenty of eye candy in the form of muscular construction workers should be enough. Add to that a devoted male with gorgeous hair. Too bad, he’s her cat. The love and stability she craves always seems to be out of reach. What she needs is a fairy godmother, but what she has is a green lily talisman that her grandmother insists is magical.
(This is Danny Logan’s POV)
In his determination to shed his geeky image, he threw away some of his favorite past time activities, including reading sci-fi novels and playing video games. The majority of his free time he spent in the gym packing on muscle. A growth burst delivered the longed for height, although no one would refer to him as a giant. With his braces gone, and his face cleared up, he managed to peak some feminine interest.
At the time, he hadn’t labeled girls into different camps as men sometimes do. To him, they were all unreachable. A smile tugged up his lips at the thought.
His co-worker, Angela, stuck her head in his open office door. “Ah, it’s true.”
“What?” The unexpected appearance of his colleague made him wonder what suspicious expression he had while on his stroll down memory lane. Better, what was being said about him? He worked hard, treated people decently. There was no reason for people to be talking smack about him.
Instead of replying, Angela put her hand over her heart and sighed.
How was he supposed this know what that meant? Before he could ask, she’d ducked out of the door. Typical. They’d worked together for the last ten years and yet she still treated him like a chick, thinking he knew what all the code words and gestures meant. He didn’t. Since he was still at lunch, he picked up his banana as he searched for Angela’s husband, Todd, who also worked for the company. If anyone could translate Angela-speak, it would have to be him.
Even though, he felt the fool. He held his hand over his heart and sighed as he faced Todd.
“That means you’re in love.” The bearded man gave a confident bob of his head. “Are you in love?”
“No, of course not. What a ridiculous question.” The idea wasn’t one he’d even considered in a good long time. He knew it seemed important for women to always be in love. A few even declared they were in love with him. He didn’t see how they could be since they knew nothing about him. His face, his body, his car somehow added up to love. For all they knew, he could be a serial killer.
At one time, he was certain he was in love with Ellie. It could have been a crush, infatuation, a passing attraction. The odd thing was, when he saw her again, he slid right back to the same place he was years ago as if nothing hadn’t changed. Weird, could he be in love? Nothing was logical about it if he was. Life experiences had shaped them into different people than they were in high school.
Morgan K Wyatt, raised on a steady diet of superheroes, believed she could fly at a very young age. After using trees, barn lofts, sliding boards, and even a second story window as launch pads, she found her flying skills were limited to fast and downward.
By the age of nine, her dreams to be a superhero needed some modifications, which caused her to turn to writing and horseback riding as alternatives to flying.
At the age of twenty, she had another chance at superhero greatness as being one of the few female soldiers trained for combat. The fact that women will be able to serve in combat soon indicates that all the witnesses to the grenade incident have retired. The grenade incident didn't prevent her two sons or daughter-in-law from enlisting in the service. Having different last names probably helped.
Morgan recently retired from teaching special needs students to write full-time, instead of in the wee hours of the night. With the help of her helpful husband and loyal hound, she creates characters who often grab plot lines and run with them. As for flying, she prefers the airlines now.
