Xavier lives a double life. He spends his time aboard the ship, Dorianne, and inside a game reality where he plays the role of knight.
The winds blew in little gusts from the beach as the knight gathered the picnic basket from the ground. It was a long walk back to Kareth. After an hour of waiting in the morning sun, it was apparent she was not coming. He wondered what it meant. Had some affair of State kept her away–or was this a message? Xavier would give her another chance, a thousand more chances. The young knight was strong in every way… except when it came to Margo.
Do you think that maybe he is in love?

Love that last line. Every knight has a Margo, eh?
Don’t we all know it!
Ah man, poor guy! Why the heck did he get stood up? ::stomps foot::
Because…well you will have to find out next time 🙂
He’s got it bad, if he’s going to give her 1000 more chances. I hope he isn’t going to be a doormat, I hope she has a good reason for missing their date. (See how you’ve reeled me into caring here LOL?) Terrific snippet!
Every knight has his weakness! Margo must be really something special. 🙂 Great excerpt.
you know it!
Alas, poor knight, he’s got it bad! Nice snippet. I like the male pov in a romantic scene.
