Book Two- A Wardens of the Wild novel
Enjoy this excerpt from Caleb's Story She stood beside a small ornamental pond at the end of a row of Christmas trees. Though she turned her head slightly at his approach, she didn’t acknowledge him. Again. Deciding he didn’t need to force the issue, he simply came to a stop beside her. He liked quiet people. His friend Levi could go hours without saying anything, letting Caleb fill the space between them if he wanted to, and that was okay. Companionship spoke volumes. It was still a surprise when she finally said, “I love the smells here.” “Hmm.” He sensed anything else might startle her into taking off. “Did you follow me?” “No.” He pointed his thumb back the way he came. “I had to use the facilities.” She casually looked in that direction, as if she could see the portable toilets hidden from view by the trees around them. “Ah.” “Did you want me to follow you?” Now she did give him her attention. “No.” It really was a good thing he had a healthy ego, since this woman seemed determined to put a dent in it. "But I’m glad you have.”
