CBP- Natalie-Nicole Bates 'See Me' Scavenger Hunt

Carly Anders  is hearing voices in her head. Another one of her kind is trying to contact her. She knows of the malevolent freaks—others who are eternal like her and seek out the weak to inflict pain upon. For years, Carly has held up huge protective walls to keep herself and her secrets safe. Now, physically and mentally exhausted, Carly needs protection and rest.

She accepts the invitation to visit an internet friend who needs help appraising a collection of antique photographs.  The situation is not ideal, but Carly hopes a male presence in her life will deter the determined suitor who haunts her thoughts and dreams.

Daniel Tremont is not what Carly is expecting.

The former funeral director has a secret of his own. Not only is he eternal like Carly, he is her creation from all those years before—her abomination she thought she killed.

Daniel has been searching for Carly for years. He knows she is the piece of his life that he has been missing for so long. Now that he has found her, he has no intentions of letting her go.

Carly’s Arrival

     Her long, straight mane of hair was the color of fallen oak leaves and dusted with gold. Her eyes were a deep espresso brown. An amber briolette hung at her throat. She wore a form fitting purple sweater that hugged her ample curves, and a matching skirt that fell a few inches above her knees. A pair of heels completed the outfit. Her suitcase and handbag sat at her feet.
     Even though he wanted nothing more at that moment than to engulf her petite figure in his embrace, he extended his hand to her. His tongue finally untied and he said the first thing that he could think of at that dizzying, long-awaited moment. “I’m so glad you decided to come.”
     She smiled, and his knees weakened. As soon as their hands joined, a jolt of electricity fired, sending them both into a stumble.
     Shocked, he said nothing and stared at his still outstretched hand. She laughed, a merry sound that filled the hallway and caused his shock to melt away.
     “Wow, that was strange!” she exclaimed.
     “I just had the carpets steamed today.” He rubbed his hands against the denim fabric of his jeans. I suppose they picked up a static charge, I’m so sorry about that,” he said.  
     Was it just static electricity? Did he just shock an innocent girl, or was two of the same kind coming together? He gazed at her perfectly painted purple lips. If just their hands coming together caused this kind of reaction, what would happen if they kissed?
