Just a Snippet

Hi all x

I just thought I’d post an excerpt of a future Chapter (draft) of Mercenary Hearts. 🙂

“SD University Grounds

Drawing the smoke deep into his lungs, Spike shifted his position in mild irritation as a protruding knot in the tree he leaned against, dug into his shoulder blade.

After wasting a couple of hours searching for information he’d caught sight of a familiar face and paused. He watched from the shadows as the youth cut across the University car park, and slipped into a building with ‘Library’ carved above the lintel.

Dark-haired, a stocky build – and really bad fashion sense. Fair dues, his own clothes were a bit shabby, but the difference being that his Sex Pistols T-shirt was the ultimate in cool. Whereas, that garish Hawaiian shirt was ultimately vomit-inducing.

Last time the vampire had laid eyes on him, he’d been holding a crossbow and making googly eyes at the Slayer.  Admittedly, he was a decent shot- but the redheaded kid who’d smelled a bit funny was a hell of a lot better. His instinctive dislike of the brunette didn’t make much sense.

Spike shrugged it off. Maybe it was just that shirt.
