Poetry Monday (or in this case, WIP Monday)

This is just a very small snippet from Battlefront… No adult content so no need to warn anyone, LOL!

Sera knew Ash stood watching her through the window at the back of the house. She’d always known when his eyes were on her. At one time in her life, that regard had meant everything to her. There was still a gap in her heart where the pleasure at being first and foremost in his attentions used to live.

Instead of looking up she moved into the house. Once inside, out of his view, she stood a moment, back against the door. Quietly, she tried to get hold of her rampant emotions. She was better than this, a professional. There was a lot to do before they left the next day and she could not let him get between her and her job.

She was strong and she believed in their cause. She’d make it through. Checking her watch she noted there was an hour-and-a-half until their meeting. Decisively, she headed out, leaving a note in the house computer notifying them she’d be back in time for the briefing.
