I Am Writing – 4/7/22 – Postscript

“Vampires are real too?” Mason glanced up at Elijah in surprise, although considering what else he’d read in the journal, he shouldn’t be. When had Donagh died? If Cyrus was Irish as Lewis implied, they had a long history of uprisings against the British.

“Yeah.” Elijah flipped over to the next page of the journal. “This can’t be right.”

“What’s wrong?” Mason followed Elijah’s gaze. “Where’s the rest of it?” He took the book from Elijah, flipped through it, then turned it upside down and shook it, hoping a clue might fall out. “Do…” He swallowed before continuing. “Is it possible there’s no more because something happened to them?”

“I hope not.” Elijah frowned. “The pages were blank before we started reading. Maybe there will be more later.”

“There better be.” Mason had finally found out something about Lewis, only for his story to stop almost as soon as it had begun. “The guy I saw in The Lemon Tree could have been Cyrus. He matched the description in the journal.”

Elijah shrugged. “Maybe. He was crying he’d lost someone, right? I’d like to think he lost Lewis after they had a long life together, but considering there was a war coming… Shit, we need to find out what happened to them.” He grew silent, reached for the last bagel and chewed thoughtfully.

“You feel it too, then?” Mason looked around the house. “I’m not just curious about what happened to them. I need to know. And this place is connected. I know it is.”

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
