Working on re-writing The Soul collector’s Second Chance and thought you guys might like this section.
Gideon Thomas is the soul collector and works for the devil. Phoebe (human) is a woman he’s been dating for two months but this is her first meeting with his friends: three couples each comprised of a soul collector and a human
The POV is Charles, Gideon’s best friend and human.
“Would you like a tour of the house?” Eve asked Phoebe. “I know history is your passion.”
“Yes very much.” Phoebe said sounding resigned that Gideon probably had told every one every thing about her.
Charles looked up from his dinner. In the process of turning from Eve to Gideon, Phoebe bumped her knee into the table caused the utensils to fall off the plate and clatter on the wood surface. She rubbed her knee and glowered at Gideon “What didn’t you tell them about me? Did you happen to mention what I like in bed?”
Charles swore Eve giggled at the question because, of course, Gideon had mentioned it. Gideon’s cheeks flamed. It amused Charles to see a devil’s agent blush, wasn’t the first time though. Gideon’s eyes flickered but he quickly recovered his decorum and his voice was steady when he caught Phoebe by the hand.
“I told you, just as you and I have no secrets, these friends have no secrets. We all trust each other explicitly.”
