Cicada Excerpt by Belle Whittington


Summertime had always been carefree and fun for Blair Reynolds and her friends--until they came upon something that was not human. As the group of friends band together in a fight for their lives, Blair's true love becomes something more than human...something unnatural. And their existence relies on their ability to keep a secret.

Do you realize how difficult it is to see properly when the only light available is green?”  Andrew moved
the icepack from his eye to his lip.

“So, why are you both all banged up like this?” Everett gestured to their injuries.

“We were wrong in thinking that no one was inside,” David snorted then shook his head.

“There are things in there …” Andrew’s voice trailed off.

“What things?” I joined my brother at the kitchen table.

“They have pictures of Mom like they’ve been following her,” Andrew winced as he lifted the
icepack to his eye once more.  “I took them.  They were taped on the wall, and I ripped them off!”

“Then he sorta went crazy in there,” David cut in.  “I don’t blame him.  I would have, too.”
“You did,” Andrew chucked a feeble laugh.

“There were other pictures,” David hopped down from the kitchen counter and sat on the other
side of Andrew.

“Natalie?”  The dark dread was growing inside of me again.  David didn’t have to nod for me to
know the answer.

“You and Everett, too,” David’s voice was matter‐of‐fact.

“They had pictures of Blair?” Everett’s brows knit together as he glanced at me and back to
David and Andrew.

“I got ‘em,” Andrew said through his teeth.  “I got all those pictures. I was going to tear that
place apart and burn it down, but …” He winced again and grabbed his ribs.

“That damned thing came out of nowhere, man!” David took up where Andrew left off.  “Those
ain’t humans.  I don’t know what the hell they are, but they sure as shit ain’t people!”

Belle was kind enough to stop by and leave a picture of the jewelry. Bree at The Magic Attic is having some complications due to weather so I wasn't able to get the pictures before now. I do apologize.
