Almost before I could walk, my Mother taught me I wasn’t better than anyone else, period. As I wrote this passage, I could remember the newscaster saying Martin Luther King had died, Pope John was shot, or Nelson Mandela was still imprisoned. Injudicious prejudice. However, I wanted The Light-Bearer Series to reflect my mother’s philosophy . . . respect others like yourself.
Lots of love, Emily
The Elder Temple Guards brought in a beautiful young man whose light and life radiated throughout the stone building. The man’s hands were tied behind his back, his face was distorted from beatings and his neck had been ripped open by a Blood-Hunter’s fangs.
Tabbruis wanted to instantly help the man.
Dmitri gripped his arm firmly whispering very softly as others around them could not hear, “You cannot help this man, to do so would mean your death too.”
“Who or what is this man? He gives off a light like the sun. Is he a Light-Bearer?”
Tabbruis felt empathy for the condemned Light-Bearer and became angry.
“Light-Bearers are our opposites. Their mission from God is to eradicate us as our mission from the Elder Council is to eradicate them. The Elders believe the Earth is ours and not to be shared. You know and understand I do not share their beliefs, Tabbruis.”
“I do not either. The Earth can be shared as long as we let the humans live in peace. But Dmitri, we should help the Light-Bearer escape.”
“Hold on and think . . . we would condemn ourselves at the first step we take to the Altar of Judgment. There is a Prophecy the Elder Council will come to justice.” Dmitri exhaled and looked very angry.
“Listen, Tabbruis, if I would have known of this man’s captivity beforehand, we could have covertly helped him escape without revealing our identities. Over the years I have helped many prisoners escape. Even though my heart breaks for this Light-Bearer, we cannot save him. Once they know of our covert treachery, we will surely die. If we are dead, how will the next condemned Light-Bearer or Blood-Hunter escape?”
Tabbruis felt disgust and hatred towards the Elder Council and began to understand Dmitri’s deep revulsion and abhorrence to them.
“Also, remember each species is repellent of the other. The Light-Bearers believe the light cannot have dark, and the Blood-Hunters believe the dark cannot have light!”
Thoughts of injudicious prejudice crashed on Tabbruis’ soul, Light cannot have dark, and the dark cannot have light.
This video reminds me of the gifts I have been given and to share . . .

I’m a hard as nails person . . . okay, I’m a marshmallow when it comes to romance. I wanted my heroine to be tough, and she is. However, Charmeine has a heart of love so big it could fill oceans. I wish I was like that!
Lots of love, Emily
Tabbruis’ grasp on her shoulder was firm, but she could almost feel his concern. She turned and looked into his deep green eyes and melted. “I’m sorry, you are right. I’m mad because with all my training, I didn’t get to fight him. Damn it to Hell! I would have loved to have taken him down a notch or two.”
Tabbruis started to laugh, shook his head and smiled wide. He asked with his eyebrows up in a quizzical way, “Just a notch or two?”
They both burst out laughing.
He took her arm and asked, “May I?”
Tabbruis took her arm in his hands. It was warm and delicate. He wrapped it around his broad shoulder and neck. Then he smoothly lifted her legs up by the backs of her knees.
Charleen instantly felt safer in his arms. With a sweet and soft voice, she whispered, “Thank you, for rescuing me,” and she laid her head on his big, strong chest.
Tabbruis could not believe how beautiful this woman was. When her arm swiped his neck, his flesh became flushed. He had her in his arms, and his heart started to beat harder. He hoped upon hope the light he saw during the attack was indeed lightning.
His mind ran over the fact Light-Bearers and Blood-Hunters were enemies. Closing his eyes, Tabbruis prayed silently, God, please do not let her be a Light-Bearer.
I picked this video because it really makes me feel empowered, and it ROCKS!
