Alone in Paris snippet

   He smirks, shaking his head and letting his eyes wander. I watch him carefully, wondering what I can say to get him to leave. “I’m not leaving until you answer some questions. Plus, I’m holding your sketchbook hostage, so you might want to cooperate.”
   I raise an eyebrow at him. I guess there isn’t much I can say. “This isn’t a hostage negotiation.”
   He chuckles half-heartedly as his eyes take me in, almost sizing me up. “I guess I should introduce myself.” He holds a hand out for me to shake. “I’m Nathan.”
   I stare at his hand for a moment. “Taylor,” I reply, meeting his eyes again without taking his hand.
   He lets his hand fall back to his side. “At least I got you to say something non-hostile.”
   “I haven’t been hostile,” I object.
   His eyebrows shoot up. “Oh, haven’t you?”
   “Why don’t you leave me alone?” I snap. “Leave and don’t come back.” I move passed him, heading for my apartment. He can’t follow and annoy me if I lock the door.
   “Where are you going?” he demands. I look back over my shoulder and roll my eyes at him, indicating the answer should be obvious: anywhere he isn’t. Once inside, I slam the door behind me.
   “That was totally not hostile!” he calls after me, sarcastically. I quickly head for my bedroom door, slamming it, too.

Alone in Paris is coming out April, 2017.
