A prompt? Do I even know how to prompt anymore? It feels like it's been months since I've written one of these bad boys but I need a break from my current WIP. My brain needs to relax and try something new. So, I've got a really fun one for you all today. Let's get rolling...
Prompt Seventy Eight-Mysterious Call
Your phone rings in the middle of the night. An indiscernible voice speaks: “There is a car waiting for you outside your house. Get inside. You don’t want to ignore this.” Your spouse rolls over, eyes squinting, and says, “Everything okay?” What happens next?
"Yeah." I clear my throat and sit up. "I'm fine. Go back to sleep." I bend down and kiss his forehead, trying to stop my heart from beating so damn fast. I slide off the bed and shuffle into a pair of moccasins. I quickly go to the bathroom and then grab a coat. I stumble down the stairs and stop at the front door. It's pitch black out, but two yellow lights shine near the road. A car.
Shit. I turn my back to the door and lean against it. What should I do? This person could be a murderer. Or worse, a raper. All of a sudden my phone vibrates in my sweater pocket. I pick it up but don't say a word.
"Come, Samantha. You're time is now." Click. The phone shuts off, completely turning black. I press the middle button but nothing happens. My phone had 88% battery life. There's no way it died. Maybe this guy is legit. I look up at the stairs. I won't risk my kid's life, or my husbands. Shit.
I tug open the door and leave the house without making a peep. The cool air whips against my face as my frozen legs prickle with goosebumps. The slippers crunch the layer of ice on the ground. I hear the ignition of the car start up and a door open, then another.
"Samantha, please enter." The man's voice is slippery.
"Who are you?" I ask as I step in.
"Driver." The door slams in my face the second I tug my leg in. Bastard I mumble under my breath as I slid further in the car.
"You should watch your mouth."
I scream at the sound of a deep voice beside me. I push off into the corner of the car, putting as much space between the two of us as I can. "Wh--Who are you?"
"I'm Kellan. And I'm going to change you."

What Readers Have to Say...
"An absolutely heart wrenching read that shows us that at times no matter how much we hope, darkness will find its way to win. "
-Blogger's From Down Under for A Reliant Love
"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
-JLH for Wingless
