Teaser:

If anyone had told me a year ago that I would find true love through a pea, I would have laughed. I mean, when you live in a forest and never see anyone who isn’t related to you, or at least overly obsessed with wood, it’s kind of hard to see how a vegetable could lead you to love. But of course it wasn’t just the pea. You could also say the light led me there and in this case that wouldn’t be metaphorical.

Excerpt:


 “My name is Alyssa, as you very well know,” I snapped, determined to fight the out of control feeling he gave me.
“Well, Alyssa,” he placed a scathing emphasis on my name, “just because you’ve been welcomed into our family fold, don’t get ideas above your station.”
“Look, Max,” I replied, “I don’t know why I offend you so much or why you can’t seem to stand the sight of me but I’ve never done anything to you. Don’t you think you could at least try to give me a chance?” I was no longer nervous, instead I felt invigorated by my anger and by the shocked surprise on his face.
“You haven’t offended me,” he said after a long pause. Now I was the one feeling surprised. It wasn’t the reaction I’d been expecting after my intentionally offensive use of his nickname.
“Really? I suppose it’s totally normal for you to spend every meal in complete silence, staring at your food.” I raised both eyebrows at him.
“It’s not that I’m offended, it’s just…” he trailed off. I waited for him to continue but he stood there silently. I decided to try a change of tack, softening my voice and expression.
“I didn’t ask for this job but I’m trying my best for your sisters. And I don’t think it’s the best thing for them to have their Companion and their brother not even on speaking terms. So if I promise that I’ll continue to do my best for them, and that I won’t take advantage of your family in any way, do you think you can try to aim for some basic courtesy towards me?” He continued to stand there in silence.
“Even if you have to pretend?” This sally made him smile so I smiled back and held out my hand. “Truce?”
“I’ll tell you what,” he replied, leaving my hand hanging. “If you agree to keep calling me Max from now on, I’ll agree to truce. You can have all the courtesy you want.” His smile had gotten bigger and he seemed to read agreement in the surprise on my face.
“A truce then, Alyssa.” This time when he said my name it was soft, almost like a caress. Before I could think of anything to say, he had turned and walked away, chuckling to himself.
I just stood there, in a daze. What had just happened? But I could make no sense of his mood swings. As for his soft voice, saying my name, I decided it would be best if I never thought about that again. Best for my mental health that is.
