#sixsunday Before The Morning #29 - And our hero, Ash, opens up a little...

Hey beautiful people!

For once, a beautiful, gorgeous summer sun is shining down on us during a weekend. We'd been treated to god-awful windy, rainy weather these past few weeks, and to have a small blast of heat with lots of brightness is a boon.

There's something about bright lights that gets me all revved up - what about you? Care to join me on a Six Sentence Sunday trip?

I'm still in Vegas, in the wedding night bedroom. Last week, Ash Gilfoy, former cop turned ambulance worker in London, woke up to find himself hitched to his childhood best friend, Rayne Cheltham, a woman he no longer really knows, though, as Rayne has been gone for the past 17 years.

After the shock and confusion of finding that ring on his finger (read that snippet here), Ash has outright asked Rayne what's going on... and her reply was that it "appeared" they got married. She "admitted" to not remembering, and "thinks" she must've asked him to marry her...

How does Ash react to this confession? Read on for today's six!


'...
How could she have done that, and, oh yeah; never mind that he'd agreed—how could she have even broached the subject with him? She knew, for God's sake....for close to two decades, she'd known marriage was not a path he contemplated, and she wasn't even aware just how much he believed in the notion that he should not taint another's life with the depths of the darkness that ran inside him.
Rayne had no idea what he'd done after she'd left—she'd gone on to save the world, to make it a better place, while he'd fought the same battle, but lost to his own demons. Demons he'd inherited from his father, that he'd seen crush his mother down into a shadow of herself. He'd never wanted to take the chance he'd do the same, even against his will, to a defenceless woman. But he’d never known how deep his darkness went, until....
...'


Can Ash be hiding a dark secret, too...?

From Mauritius with love,

Sensational work as always!

Jessica Subject said...

I love how they are both so damaged, and both hiding their own dark secrets. Maybe they can heal together. ;) Great six! :)

Oh, but Ash can't crush Rayne, even against his will! He's found someone who can handle him, I'm sure :)

What a tease you are, stopping there :-)

J.M. Blackman said...

I'm with Sherry--you're such a tease! But I love it. Fantastic snippet, Zee. I'm so intrigued by this darkness in Ash. It can't be as bad as he's thinking. Looking very forward to more.

Love his internal conflict. Sounds like they have a few more issues to resolve.

Sue Ann Bowling said...

Each hiding their own dark secrets, and convinced they're not worthy of the other--how are they going to work it out

Zee Monodee said...

LOL! Thanks, Alix! xoxo

Zee Monodee said...

Exactly, Jessica! These two are flawed, damaged, jaded, but together, there can be hope for them... :)

Zee Monodee said...

Angela, Ash has definitely met his match, indeed :)

Zee Monodee said...

LOL Sherry

Zee Monodee said...

JM, lol here too! Yeah, he has darkness, but it cannot be as bad as Rayne's streak. Yet, he is convinced he isn't worthy of love... Poor man :)

Zee Monodee said...

Issues keep cropping up for them, Lorraine! :)

Zee Monodee said...

Sue Ann, their path will be a labour of love and learning how to trust again :)
