This is a teaser from Kiss Me Deadly, which will release Oct 1st. I feel the need to mention that this book was written years ago, lol (although it has been rewritten and expanded). I say this because of the teaser. Once you read it, you'll know why I bring up the date. *grin*
“It was your bright idea to have Matt over, not mine.” Henri snickered.
Jude met Henri at some big-name discount grocery/department store. Even though it was fairly late at night, the place was still busy with a wide variety of people dressed in… interesting ways. Jude actually did a double take when passing one woman.
Music from forty years ago played through the store, the lighting was harsh, and there was an odd stale scent to the air. Something also beeped incessantly. This place was Hell on Earth, and he wanted to leave in the worst way.
Here was the deadliest creature on the face of the planet pushing a cart with a broken wheel—and of course the cart went in the opposite direction Jude wanted—throwing foodstuff into the cart. To say he wasn’t happy was an understatement.
“I will end you. Just keep it up, Henri.” To make matters worse, Jude had no idea what things to buy. He hadn’t eaten food in nearly two thousand years. Back then, food like this didn’t exist.
Henri rolled his eyes. “Jalapenos, pork and beans, Spam, dried raisins, and mashed potatoes in a box. Are you trying to woo him or poison him?” Finally, Henri reached for the cart. “I’ll take over getting what is needed. Oh, and there needs to be snacks too, so if Matt gets hungry, he can nibble. And we’ll definitely need toilet paper.”
“You’re obsessed with toilet paper.”
