Today, I decided to share a snippet from The Artist's Masquerade.
Flavian slipped inside, and Cathal shut the door behind him. Cathal turned back to look at him, the surprise on Cathal’s face giving way to pleasure and then concern. “What’s wrong?”
“What do you mean?”
Cathal hesitated. “You look upset.”
Flavian just looked at him for a moment. Cathal standing there, somehow more handsome in the loose shirt and breeches than in his court finery, with concern for Flavian softening his features. “I am upset. I shouldn’t have bothered you though.”
“Yes, you should. You can always come to me.”
The quiet, simple statement stunned Flavian and left him floundering for words.
