WIP it up Wednesday

Hello all!!

SO...... This week I am again posting on my new and only book Taming the Preachers Daughter.
 

Excerpt:

Savi felt all alone in the world, like no one would ever understand her. She was deep in thought when her cell phone rang, startling her. Even more startling, the caller ID showed that it was Eric. What, did he want to make more excuses for the church? If so, she didn’t want to hear it. She contemplated not even answering the phone, but her feelings for Eric won out over her stubborn anger. She could never deny him.

“Hey. Eric, if you're calling to tell me how wrong I am, I don’t want to hear it,” she answered with an attitude, not wanting to make things easy for him. He certainly wasn’t making them easy for her.

“I wasn’t going to say a thing, I was just wondering where you are. Everyone is pretty worried about you.” Eric’s voice was calm and cheerful, as if she hadn’t screamed at him in a crowded restaurant only hours before.

“It doesn’t matter,” Savi whimpered, her resolve breaking.

“It matters to me,” Eric assured her. “Where are you? I’ll come to you. We can talk.”

 “I don’t want to hear any more excuses,” Savi snapped at him.

 “I won’t talk, I’ll just listen,” Eric whispered.

Giving in, she told Eric where she was, the same spot on the beach that she had been all evening.

 It didn’t take Eric more than a few minutes to get there; he must have been close by. When Eric arrived, he didn’t say a word, just sat down next to her in the sand. Savi didn’t speak either; she was all talked out. They sat there for hours in silence just watching the waves crash against the shore, eventually falling asleep together on the beach.

When Savi awoke, she noticed that Eric had stayed all night. She smiled. It made her feel like she truly mattered. She finally had Eric’s attention and it had nothing to do with the clothes she was wearing. It had to do with her heart; it had to do with who she really was.
***
Eric awoke to Savi looking down at him, he couldn’t believe someone could be that beautiful in the morning, but she was. He had enjoyed his time with Savi even though neither of them spoke; he truly enjoyed just being near her.

Eric knew that somehow he would have to make Savi understand that domestic discipline was done out of love, not anger. He would have to show her what love was and how domestic discipline bettered a marriage, if only she would give him the chance to make that happen. Eric had fallen in love with Savi that night. Not only was she beautiful on the outside, he saw the fire in her soul.

Eric knew that if he were going to show Savi that discipline wasn’t a bad thing, he would have to earn her trust first. He knew he would have to show her compassion and listen to her. Savi had become the most important person to Eric, and he needed to show her that.

  2. It's so nice when you can just be with someone and feel pressured to talk.
