Shadows Have Gone, the third book in the End of All Things series, will be released on March 26. I'm doing a countdown during the two weeks leading up to its release with a new excerpt every day. Stop back tomorrow for something new!
Justin was still looking down at Dagny. He gave a soft laugh. “Do you remember when she was born? How she looked? She was all red and wrinkled and squished. I remember thinking she was such an ugly little thing.”
Carly laughed. “Justin!”
“Well, she was.” He grinned. “But I knew the moment I laid eyes on her that I was going to love her with all my heart. Even if she did look like an angry old man.”
“She got prettier,” Carly said. She lightly ran her hand over Dagny’s soft, downy hair. “She has your eyes. I always imagined that, when I pictured the baby you and I might have. Your beautiful black eyes.”
“I could never picture the baby,” Justin murmured. “My fear clouded it every time I tried. I just kept seeing you—seeing me losing you.” His eyes rose to meet hers. “But I’m not so afraid anymore, Carly. I know there are risks. God, I know there are risks, but I can face them with you.”
Carly said nothing. Tears spilled from her eyes even as she smiled, and she reached up to take his hand in her own.
