I Am Writing – 29/5/22 – Postscript

Cyrus stared at him. “You’ve never told me that before. I thought…” He seemed honestly taken-a-back.

“My Victor is a good man,” Esmé said softly. “He can never resist someone in need, no matter who they are.”

“Not to mention how much I disliked what we were doing in Ireland. I’d been a soldier for too long, and needed a new start. Meeting Cyrus enforced that feeling that my desire to leave was the right one.” Victor and Esmé shared a smile. “If I hadn’t come to New Zealand, I wouldn’t have met my Esmé, and now I have a good friend in Cyrus too.”

“Friendships and family are important,” Lewis agreed. He slipped his hand into his pocket, his fingers closing over the letter his sister, Louisa, had sent him that morning. “None of us know how much time we have left,” he ventured. “Or what might be ahead.”

“That sentiment isn’t like you.” Cyrus frowned. “I hope what you’re wanting to tell me isn’t connected to bad news.”

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
