“I am sorry, Charmeine, for so many things it is hard to express them all, but I am going to try.”
He took a big breath, and looked in her eyes. “I am sorry for not supporting you. I am sorry for not believing in you. I am sorry for not having faith in you. I am sorrym Charmeine. If you let me show you, for the rest of my life until the end of time, I will never doubt you again.”
“Tabbruis, I can’t do this now.”
“Please let me finish.” He gently held her chin, looked into her eyes and declared, “Charmeine you are my life. You are my light. If you go back to Long Island…”
She walked to the terrace stone wall. “Tabbruis, it isn’t so easy putting Jack and Jill back together again. I really need to be alone.”
“Look at me this time, Charmeine. I have to say my peace, and I will leave.” He stood beside her.
She turned and faced him with her hands defiantly across her chest and sighed.
“If you go back to Long Island, I will accept it, but let me go and be near you. Let me live close to you. I can buy any kind of house or apartment you wish for your own privacy. You do not need to see me, just let me be proximate to you, for you are the center of my Earth. God knows I cannot live without you. However, you will never have to lay your eyes on me. This is what I ask. Nevertheless, please forgive me, Charmeine. Forgive me enough to let me just be close to you. If you abandon me, I will not survive. Wherever you go, I will go with you. Whatever you want, I will give it to you.”
He unfolded her arms and took her hands which sparked. He unclenched her fists and drew them up in front of them, palm to palm. Her sparks began to go up and down their bodies, enveloping them with light.
“Tabbruis, do you remember the first time this happened? You were trying to convince me not to leave and sacrifice myself to the Elder Council.”
“Yes, I remember, my love.” He drew nearer to her. “I know you cannot lie to me. So answer me this, do you have the strength to be without me?”
I love the part where Tabbruis says that he just wants to be near Charmeine.
It brings a tear to my eye today.
So much love…
Enjoy the video, it’s another song that makes me shiver.
Lots of love, Emily

When I ask for help, it always comes with anxiety and even distress in some cases.
I’m not talking about help like asking hubby to take out the trash or asking for donations to a charity for a 5K walk/run.
No, the help I’m talking about is personal.
It is about my passion, my little shop in my brain.
I need to promote the pre-sale of Seditious my fourth book in The Light-Bearer Series.
So I have asked everyone I could think of to share Seditious.
I could hire a blog tour, but they are pricey.
Some friends that I contacted immediately said, YES!
Their responses made my heart light and was warmed by their encouragement.
Some friends did not answer.
Which is probably meant to say, no.
It made me wonder.
Like lightning, I realized that . . .
The help I am asking for has to matter to the person I asked.
That’s what eluded me during my sleepless night.
When I ask hubby to take out the trash, he does it, because he knows he’s a part of the family unit. Doing chores is part of being in a family.
When I ask for a donation for a 5K, that person does it with the hope a cure will be found.
So, what I have found is that my asking for help has to matter to you!
I will gladly feature your book or blog. This goes for everyone . . . even if you help me or not! Everyone is welcome. That’s what Pay it Forward Friday is for, to give to you some recognition for your passion!
It’s sort of cool because it’s Karma.
And if you know me at all, I am a strong believer in Karma.
My mother used to say, “I cast a couple pieces of bread on the water and the waves bring me back a ham sandwich.”
Obviously, she wasn’t a philosopher, but she believed we are all dependent on the grace we give to each other!
We may not know it yet, but she was right. Everyone is equal.
Lots of love, Emily
Enjoy the video, one of my favs!
