THE LIGHT-BEARER SERIES
As Charmeine smiled, she wiped away a tear. “Tabbruis, did you say earlier you keep making mistakes? How your intent is good and didn’t know if our problems existed because you were alone so long?”
“Yes, you did not answer, so I felt like you agreed with my comment.” Tabbruis lowered his eyes and nodded. His hands went into fists, and then he unclenched them as he ran his hands through his hair in frustration.
She shook her head, got up and sat on the edge of the chaise lounge. Charmeine touched his cheek, and sweetly divulged, “No, I don’t agree. Quite frankly, I feel like I’m the problem, Tabbruis.” She turned away from him, put her hand over her eyes and chuckled, “It’s very hard to be a wife, mother, sister, aunt, Angel, Queen of the Light-Bearers, and battle Lucifer’s followers all at the same time. A lot of lines get blurred.” She turned and looked into his deep green eyes. “But Tabbruis, you have a tendency of coddling and shielding me.”
“Charmeine, I only want you and our baby to be healthy and happy.”
“Tabbruis, women have been having babies ever since Adam and Eve were turned out of Eden,” she quipped with a smile.
Immediately, he sat up, held her face and declared, “On Earth . . . not my woman,” and he kissed her deeply.
She pulled away from him. “You are not to blame Tab . . .”
He drew her up to him like she was a ragdoll and kissed her harder. In desperation, he pleaded, “Oh God, all I want is you and Baby Hunter to be safe, protected and loved. I need to know that you and all of our family is secure and happy.” He kissed her with the worry he felt. Tabbruis ran his fingers through her long blonde hair and wrapped his arms tightly around her.
Tabbruis never wanted to let Charmeine go.
Quite possibly one of the most liberating and telling songs about me, especially!

Charmeine handed Shane a cup of coffee. She placed her cup on the table and rubbed her head. Explaining Blood-Hunters and Light-Bearers existed was going to be a tough job.
Tabbruis looked into Shane’s eyes. “First thing you need to know is that our stories will sound strange, but listen to our explanations with a calm mind.” He took a deep breath. “I am an orphan, too. I woke up on a rock in the desert many centuries ago with only the knowledge of my name. I did not know where I was from or how I got there. Charleen understood because that is exactly how it happened to her. However, she cannot remember anything past 1997, except for a dream.”
Charmeine smiled at Shane and nodded her head.
Shane’s piercing blue eyes were suspicious, but when he looked at Charmeine, he acquiesced with a nod. She was not one to bend the truth. Deep in his heart, he knew however fantastic the information was, he could trust her with his life.
Tabbruis wiped his big hand through his dark chestnut hair, “When I woke up, I learned I was not a Human. I needed blood to live on.”
Shane took a quick breath of disgust, looked down and pounded the table. He thought, This is enough crap!
“Look at me, Shane,” Charmeine ordered.
He saw her eyes as they flashed with intensity.
“Tab’s telling the truth. I told you he needed blood last night. I don’t lie, and I’m not lying about this.”
Shane crossed his arms in defiance and shook his head.
“You wanted to know what was going on. Now, you can either listen or leave, Shane. I will not tolerate your disrespect. If you want to know the truth, then get rid of the attitude, now.”
Shane noticed her hardened expression. When Char was this determined, she was not a woman to be trifled with. He knew she wasn’t going to take any of his back-talk. He sighed and drank almost all of his coffee. “Okay Tab, Char said something like that last night, but I can’t do this without more coffee.” He got up, poured himself another cup of coffee and sat down. “Go on and talk, man. I have to admit, Char never lies.”
Tabbruis sighed with a little relief, “Just like your body runs on food. I run on blood. For a long time, I hunted humans to survive. I thought that was my destiny. However, I stopped. I could not inflict harm anymore. I made a conscious choice to only drink animal blood and/or human blood if it was donated.”
Shane opened his eyes wide.
Tabbruis and Charmeine could see his brain starting to process the information.
For some, belief in paranormal is laughable.
When I wrote this scene from
the 2nd novel in The Light-Bearer Series, I wondered…
How would you react if someone you trusted said they were paranormal?
How far down the Rabbit-Hole would you go?
Lots of love, Emily
Had to rock this one, enjoy the video!
