A Sneak Peek of “Tomorrow”, Kat 1.5 (#SatSpanks and #8Sunday)

This is an exciting week, month, and set of months.

Next Wednesday, Simple Gifts will finally debut! Next weekend, I will return to showing you those snippets.

This weekend, my co-authors of Coming to Terms and I are giving you a sneak peek at our short stories for the anthology coming out on May 15th. For those of you anxiously awaiting Lighting the Way, the sequel to The Way Home, this should tide you over until the June 6th release date.

“Tomorrow” tells the story of Kat and Natalie stuck in unhelpful relationship patterns. Kat is always “wrong”, Nat is always “right”, and every attempt to heal only drives them further apart. This scene occurs shortly after Kat has returned to Natalie’s house. They are careful with each other at first, but their old conflicts inevitably flare up. In order for them to find their way back to each other, Kat has to learn how to stand up for herself.

Former college roommates, best friends, and family. Can Kat and Natalie find a way to stay together…without killing each other?

.

“Why do I have to be perfect?”  I wrestle against her grip, but I fear using all of my strength. I can still hear the sickening crunch when she fell into the corner of the table during our worst fight.

“Katya,” she says, and I stop struggling long enough to listen, “it’s not your fault.”

She is the one who tells me not to lie.

“You should rest,” I say, “or you’ll get get sick again.”

She drops my arms. “Why won’t you listen?”

“Why won’t you shut up?”

    Kat and Natalie certainly have their share of problems. However, I don’t think Natalie expects Kat to be perfect. Kat expects that of herself, which is an unrealistic expectation. A perfectionist.

    “Unhelpful relationship patterns”—a bit of an understatement, I’d say. 🙂

    Their relationship is so complex that even when it is painful (literally and emotionally) I still can’t look away because it’s so compelling.

    This is a wonderful snippet, Ana. They have such a long way to go to get to place where they can communicate, and really help each other.

    Raw and real. Their feelings need to be dealt with in order to move past it all. I cannot wait for this to come out. I know that my heart will beat fast, I will shed tears, smile and laugh.

    Wow, all sorts of good things on the horizon for you!

    Intriguing snippet. It sounds like there’s a lot going on in it, and it reveals a great deal about how Kat responds to Natalie. Looking forward to the next installment in this series. You’re doing great work!
