Hunter's Heritage: Chapters Ten and Eleven!

I didn't get around to updating last weekend. It was a busy week... We were out of town and there was a death in the family and I just didn't have the mental energy to work through chapter ten (which needed a major revision before I could post it). But after a week of getting back into the swing of things, I had the time and energy to revise the chapters, so here they are! I hope you enjoy!

Sebastian would never admit it out loud, but Jonas was right. By the time the sun began to set, Sebastian was eager to get out of the car. He loved Tabitha with all his heart, but she was driving him crazy. They had stopped twice for a bathroom break and each time she had whined about getting back in the car. When she wasn't complaining, she was either making mindless chatter with anyone who had the patience to not ignore her, switch stations ever few minutes or rope Sebastian into a road trip game. He planned to speed the rest of the way tomorrow to New Orleans just so he wouldn't have to endure another whole day in the car with Tabitha.
He pulled into the lot of a large hotel and the instant he stopped the car Tabitha threw open the door and jumped out. She gasped dramatically. "Oh my gosh! Finally, relief!"
Sebastian smiled wearily as he got out, watching Tabitha stretch her arms over her head and then lean against the car and stretch her legs. Chelsea and Jonas got out, stretching too.
"Can we afford this?" Chelsea asked, gazing up at the nice hotel.
Sebastian flashed her a quick smile. "I can."
Her eyes widened, and Tabitha waved her astonishment away. "This is an all-expenses paid trip curtsey of Sebastian's hundred and something years' worth of money hoarding."
Sebastian frowned at that. "It's not hoarding. It's called being smart with your money."
Tabitha just shrugged, smirking at him. "Seems like hoarding to me. Anyways, let's get inside. I need a major break from the sight of that car."
Sebastian just sighed and went around to the trunk. Jonas followed, both the girls assuming the two of them would grab their backs for them. He understood why Tabitha wanted Jonas on this trip. It was logical and a good choice. Two hunters and a vampire had more of a chance to catch a murderous vampire than one hunter, a vampire and an amateur human, but he couldn't shake the untrustworthy feeling he had toward Jonas. Honestly the boy looked a little worse for wear with dark circles under his eyes. Sebastian had lost his parents when he was a near his age, so he understood what him and Tabitha were going through. He also knew that just because he was related to Kyle didn't make him a bad guy.
But he was part of the Moirai and a definite rule follower. Jonas may be going along with this plan for now, but the minute something drastic happened he would call in backup, Sebastian was sure of it. He wouldn't let him jeopardize this mission. Sebastian wished he could read Jonas' mind seeing how the boy gave him the cold shoulder as much as Sebastian was to him. Jonas took rowan everyday though barring Sebastian from his thoughts. He wondered if Jonas picked up on Sebastian's chilliness toward him and was reciprocating. Jonas took Chelsea's suitcase and his own while Sebastian grimaced down at the rest of the luggage. Most of the trunk was occupied by Tabitha's things. Knowing her, she would want at least half of her wardrobe for tomorrow morning, so Sebastian grabbed his bag and two of her suitcases. He shut the door and walked around to the front of the car, handing one of the suitcases to Tabitha.
She blinked at him teasingly. "What happened to being a gentleman? Aren't you going to carry my things?"
For a second Sebastian was tempted to tell her the last time he had helped a young lady with her bags at a hotel it had ended with him being strangled. Alistair had already told her that story, though, and he didn't feel like watching Chelsea gape at him the rest of the road trip. Mary Jane with her scarlet curls and devilish green eyes flashed across his mind. The way she had cornered him, the naïve son of a farmer who had been taught to always respect a young lady. She had used his manners against him by innocently asking if he could help her with her bags, having made a show of being unable to lift her things. Now Sebastian knew she could have lifted both bags and then some, but at the time he had been so unknowing. He had gladly accepted, not only out of respect but also because she was quite beautiful and alluring.

Happy New Years!!

Happy New Years everyone! 2019 is officially here! Some parts of last year felt like they went by so slowly while other parts feel like they were a blur. But overall, 2018 was a good year and I have a feeling 2019 will be a good year too. 2019 is a new season of life for me and others and I'm so excited to see what God has planned for myself, friends and family.

I know I've already posted my goals for 2019 but there are a few more I want to add. Since writing the Looking Forward to 2019 post, I had a few epiphanies that I think are important.

First of all, one of the authors I follow on Instagram wrote a post today about the difference between dreams and goals. Goals are achievable. They can be accomplished. Dreams can be too, but sometimes certain dreams are out of our control and when we fail to accomplish that dream, we fail. She said how she really wanted to sell a book in 2019. To pitch a book to her agent and get it out there. But that's not a goal. That's a drea…

January 2019 Wrap-Up

Wow! The first month of the year is nearly over! I can't believe it's almost already February. Just one more month and it'll be my birthday!

With the end of January, I'm really starting to think about what I want to do this year, mostly concerning this blog and my writing and stuff. I want to change some things blogger-wise and grow my audience, though I'm still trying to brainstorm and figure out the best ways to do that. There are just a lot of thoughts and ideas floating around in my head right now that are hard to organize and put down on paper (or type out on keyboard), but I'm sure with all these ideas and thoughts, there will come lots more blog posts. So instead of trying to organize my messy thoughts right now, I think I'll just do my wrap-up same as usual.

January Writing: This month's writing has been good. December was a hard month for me. I was super burnt out and blocked in everything I did. Writing three different versions of my Peter Pan …

Friday in Review: Fictional Vacation/Would you Rather

Happy Friday! So, they awesome Lily Cat tagged me in this fictional vacation/would you rather challenge and I am so excited to do this. It sounds so fun!

Alright so here's the deal:

~ Include the graphic Madeline made.
~ Answer the Questions 
~ Tag some other people if you feel so inclined
Let's jump right into this! 
Would you rather... 
Train with demigods for the summer at Camp Halfblood OR attend Hogwarts to learn some spells for a semester?
How is this even a question? ;) Camp Halfblood of course! I adore the Percy Jackson series, so I would do just about anything to be a halfblood for the Summer. The real question is, who would my parent be?? My enneagram four side who loves being special and different wants me to be a kid of one of the big three... maybe Hades just to make myself extra special and unique from everyone else ;) But most likely I'd end up being like a Posiedon kid... or if we're being real probably Apollo cuz I'm a writer and all that, even though …
