Prairie Muse
by SS Hampton, Sr.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Erotic Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

The fireworks are about to begin as the sexual adventure of Rachel and Burt Markham continues. Small business owners and happily married couple of 20+ years, they live in the small town of Four Corners, Kansas. The year before, with the permission and encouragement of her husband, Rachel had the freedom to explore the depth of her sensuality through having her first Bull. After saying farewell to her Bull, Rachel and Burt settle back into the routine of small town life. Then, African-American frustrated artist and new fireworks territory sales manager Horus Grant arrives in Four Corners. He is searching for new sales territory for the Missouri-based company and wants to open a fireworks stand next to Rachel and Burt’s seed and feed store. Outwardly friendly and personable, he is plagued by hidden demons. Though based in near-by Wichita, Horus finds himself returning to Four Corners again and again, and not because of the fireworks stand. Rachel is also drawn to him and soon realizes she may hold the key to Horus’s slim chance of defeating his demons, of healing, and learning to live again.

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT:

The naked, husky black man passed out on the couch twisted as a muffled groan came from the face buried in a corner of the back and seat cushion. A tremor ran through a muscular tattooed arm hanging over the edge of a cushion and thick fingers jerked spasmodically. Another groan came from the buried face.

“Nooo,” a deep voice gasped. “Nooo. Not again.”

Horus Charles Grant lifted his head and took deep, shuddering breaths. He tried to turn over but couldn’t. His arms and legs were heavy and unresponsive to the alcohol-blurred commands from his brain. He lay his head on the cushion. His stomach was churning and he wanted to vomit.

“No,” he whispered. “No!”

Swollen eyelids fluttered. A pale bluish glow pierced the static-filled darkness. Blood shot eyes so red they might have been bleeding stared into the bluish-tinged darkness.

It was the same, always the same.

For years the dreams never varied—jerky slow motion dreams like an old-time hand cranked movie that sped up and screeched to a stop, became slow motion, and froze again. Sometimes he heard everything, sometimes there was silence.

Horus whimpered as he stared into the blue-tinged darkness. Stare not into the abyss for the abyss stares into you.

A rapid stopwatch ticking came from the abyss.

Tick tick tick…

A little girl looked up at him, grinned and held her arms out for him to pick her up. He tried but she grew up—she was too big to pick up…
