I Am Writing – 28/3/22 – Postscript


From Postscript:
“It’s a curse, not a blessing.”

“It doesn’t have to be.” Elijah reached for Mason’s hand, warmth washing through him when Mason accepted the offer. “I already offered to help, and I meant it. It’s not a bad thing to be different.”

“You have a community… a pack.”

“You could too. Have a community, I mean. There are other psi in town here, and I bet there are more out in the wider Wellington region too. We could find out.”

Mason squeezed Elijah’s hand, then released it. He chewed on his lower lip. “I already know there are, but I’m not sure I’m ready to be a part of that yet. Fiona…” He turned to face Elijah. “My sister is psi. Most of my family are. I already knew Lewis was, but not what his ability was. Nana said it was his secret to tell.” Mason hesitated. “Fiona met Ennis shortly after she moved here. He sent his friend Noah a message when I didn’t pick up my phone. Isaac, Noah’s husband, is a nurse. He saved me. They all did.”

“Perhaps, when you’re ready we could talk to them. Together, if you like.” Elijah wasn’t surprised that a community already existed. He’d heard rumours of other psi outside Kedgetown, although they mainly kept to themselves. He doubted any of them knew about the supernatural community, or if they did, they weren’t letting on.

About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with a cat with “tortitude” who is convinced that the house is run to suit her; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date, it appears as though Kaylee may be winning. In 2008, Anne completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts and reviews for other authors, and writes monthly blog posts for Love Bytes. She is the co-founder of the New Zealand Rainbow Romance writers, and a member of RWNZ. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions five times, reached the finals four times—one of which was for best gay book—and been a runner up in the Rainbow Awards. She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical. Anne can be found at https://annebarwell.wordpress.com
