Sister Hoods, Book 4 in the Portals Series
P.L. Blair has sent a video interview discussing Sister Hoods. Enjoy!
“More than that.” There was a hint of a smile in the Wizard's voice – and on his lips when Tevis darted a glance at him. “You love her in … more than a brotherly way. Have you told her?”
Tevis felt his eyes fly wide, and he pushed back in his seat. “No!” He shook his head. “I would not … No.” A headshake emphasized the word.
“You think she doesn't love you.”
“I hope she does not!” He sighed, forcing taut muscles to relax, and sat forward again. “I do not want to test it, Arvandus. I cannot do that to her!”
“Would it be so terrible? Humans and Elves have made lives together.”
“Yet seldom, if ever, has it been what Humans call a … a happy ending. You know that, Arvandus!” He studied the Wizard's impassive face. “Humans' lives are as fleeting to Aalfar as that of a mayfly to them. Kathryn will grow old, and … and I will not.”
He shifted his gaze to his hands drooped over his knees. They did not betray the feelings churning in him. He could not … love Kathryn … that way. Never … that way. He could not allow himself to even think it! “What pain would that bring her, Arvandus, to see – to feel – her youth and beauty and strength slip away, while I remain unchanged? Humans are doomed to death from the very moment of their birth! I would, by my very presence, be a constant reminder to her of how short her own days are. And ...
“And,” he drew another breath, watched his hands contract into fists, “there is … my own selfish desire to … to not see Kathryn growing older, growing old, knowing there is nothing I can do to help her – to see her make that final journey where I cannot follow. I am,” he lifted his head to again meet the Wizard's gaze, “I am not certain I can do that.”
Arvandus too sat forward. “What will you do, then?”
The Aalfar looked away again, stared at the earth moving beneath them. It was too late … He had already given his heart to the Human woman who was his partner. He drew a breath and softly, slowly released it. “I … do not know.”
A personal note from Sandy: YEAH!!!! I'm so glad these two characters are moving into a romantic relationship. They're perfect for each other. This makes me very happy!
