Book Preview: "Blue Promises"
There are many threads. Sometimes they're very similar. Sometimes their not. Alin and Jody though are always drawn together. In Blue Promises, the main story is Alin's Song. After the war, they have lost touch with each other. Alin has discovered that he loves to sing and things if he can just find a way to get Jody to listen to his songs, Jody will remember he loves him. Love is just never that easy.
"Jody? He's here, in LA? Looking for me?"
"Damn," Mickey said, "Alin St. Grenis in a sound booth. Bloody hell. What's the world coming to?"
"I have to go," Alin said, already heading towards the door, in just his cleaned jeans and rattie Blue Promises tee-shirt. Jody! Jody would be at the Knights of Justice station and Alin could get into the there. He'd tried to get into the presidential palace once, and spent three days in lock up over it. He hadn't had any identification on him at the time, and he'd been drunk, but still, if anyone had wanted to see him, he figured security would have had some clue to let him in.
"A.G.!" Kioki yelled, "Don't go! You don't want to go out right now! Come back!"
In the end though, he was twenty and she was nearly eighty. He didn't have much regard for inhibition or fear. It seemed like the perfect time to find Jody and confront him, tell him plainly how much he loved him, how he couldn't live without him, and Alin didn't care where he was. When he found Jody, he was going to tell him! If it was in the middle of the Knight of Justice station, on the street, in front of Sarah or thousand cameras, anywhere in the world! As soon as he found him, there'd be no more secrets!
Alin grabbed his bag, which was still hanging off the chair where he'd signed his loan papers, and he didn't even slow down.
"Stop him!" Kioki screamed and Kyo grabbed for him as Alin raced towards the door and the street light lit sidewalk beyond. "Don't let him out of the house!"
Some man Alin didn't know grabbed his wrist, went for the braid, and Alin spun, twisted his arm and planted a knee in the man's gut, followed by an instinctive backhanded blow that was hard enough to bust the man's nose. Blood splattered over the hard wood floor and Alin was out the door.
"A.G.!" Kyo screamed. "Wait! You're not thinking clearly!"
But Alin was! He knew he was! For the first time ever, he wasn't afraid to tell Jody how he really felt and he had to do it now. This was the golden moment.
