Excerpt from Rua by Miranda Kavi

 “Rylan?” she whispered into the dark. No answer. She sat down at her desk chair to wait for his return.

“Don’t sit. We need to go.” He was back, holding the window open for her. Her bedroom door was closed.

“Quit showing off,” she said. He went out the window first then helped her down. “Where did you go, anyways?” she asked.

“Just made sure your parents were in a deep sleep, that’s all.” He took her hand then led her through the forest again. It was much easier to navigate with shoes and socks. She followed him, expecting him to lead her to his parked car. But instead, he stopped.

Keeping her left hand firmly grasped in his right, he pulled her close, then rotated her body until they were face to face. He took her other hand with his free hand. Their faces were only inches apart, and she was painfully aware of how close his body was to hers. She looked up into his face.

He said nothing, but watched her with golden-flecked eyes. In the dark, they had some subtle luminescence.

He said nothing, and she stayed still.

Finally, he spoke, in the lowest voice she’d heard him use. “Please be careful. We can’t trust her.”

“Okay,” she said.

“I want to try something.” He dropped her hands, but replaced them with something better. He wrapped his arms around her waist then pulled her against him. Their bodies pressed together, spreading warmth to new places in the cold night.

Her breath caught in her throat.

He leaned closer. “Do you trust me?”


“Close your eyes.” His breath moved the baby hairs framing her face.

She did, expecting his lips to press on hers in the dark. Instead, her body was ripped violently into motion, like taking the first drop-off on a roller coaster.
