I’m at the point in writing now where my main character is head over heels in love. For a respected elder this presents a bit of a problem. The newcomer is quite a bit younger than D’vhan and – despite D’vhan’s best efforts – definitely the take charge man in this relationship.

This fire would consume me if I … I stepped forward stopping with the smudge fire between us.
