Here's a sneak peak at a non edited excerpt of Cancer:
‘If he kills Matt, I’m going to rip out his heart and make sure it never beats again.’
The tears threatened but I wouldn’t let them free. My enemy would not reduce me to a sniffling wreak. Again.
‘We’ll get him back, Cancer, calm down.’ Aries bumped into someone. They glared at him but didn’t say anything. London was like that. Full of glares and silence.
A car beep made me jump. I followed my brother through the crowd of people in Covent Garden. I had no idea where he was taking me.
‘Stay behind me,’ he said, stepping back suddenly.
His six foot five frame blocked my view of anything ahead. I stumbled into him as the people behind me pushed past.
‘What are you doing?’ I gasped, grabbing hold of his thick forearm to get my balance.
‘I’m trying to find your boyfriend,’ he spat, shrugging me off.
Releasing him, I shoved him forward. There were too many people gathered around to stop. He wasn’t exactly the most subtle of people. His height and good looks were only the first thing people noticed.
A band started playing nearby. I recognised the song instantly.
‘What’s he doing here?’ Aries said.
Taking my arm, he pushed through two people and dragged me to the front of a circle that had formed around our other brother’s band.
‘Leo did mention he was busking today. I didn’t know it would be here, though.’
Aries ignored me. I pulled away from his grip when his palm started to get hot, sending a searing heat through my skin. It was handy that he could form fire with his hands. Not so handy if he touched you when he was angry.
‘How will we find Matt here?’ I asked.
Aries looked down at me. The sun caught the dark tips of his hair as it started to curl around his ears. His brown eyes met mine for only a second. ‘Pisces had a hunch.’
Letting my breath rush out of me, I followed his gaze. Leo, our musician brother, played a haunting song in the middle of the circle. His voice was raspy. The guitar he strummed was sunburst, which suited his fiery nature.
‘Seriously? We’re here because you listened to Pisces?’
Leo opened his eyes as he reached the chorus. His gaze landed on me. Winking, he raised his hand to let us know he had seen us. His tattooed arm bulged as he gripped the microphone stand. A couple of girls near him glared in my direction.
‘Isn’t it funny how people get jealous?’ Aries asked.
I glanced up at him, ready to get his attention and drag him back to our excursion.
‘Yes, a lot of people do. I have no idea why,’ I found myself saying.
Aries stayed where he was, which was unusual. He didn’t usually take an interest in Leo’s band.
‘What are we doing?’ I moaned.
Aries stepped back as someone tried to pass him. The shorter man pointed at his legs and said something to his friend.
‘What’s up, mate?’ Aries said to him.
The man’s cheeks grew red as he shook his head.
‘No, go on. Tell me what you just said.’
I swallowed. Aries had behaved for a while now. His old habits of getting into fights seemed to have calmed down since he had proposed to his twin flame Natalie. Maybe he needed to let off some steam.
Coming December (hopefully haha).
