I had this wickedly awesome dream about a year ago and wrote it down immediately. I always keep a note pad and pen in my nightstand drawer. I don't dream as much as I used to but this dream was so graphic that it felt like a movie. Just to make sure I asked my hubby about it to make sure this wasn't a movie we had ever seen before!
Story is about a small town girl with the ability to read people's thoughts. Her parent's died when she was young and she lives with her Aunt and Uncle. She's kind of a loner. People in town know there's something a little different about her, but they leave her alone, which is exactly what she wants.
She's active in church and has two very wild and crazy best friends. They are identical twins and know all her secrets and love her just the same. She tries not to read their minds, but often get's into trouble doing so.
She is an amazing celloist, but doesn't want to move out of her small town since everyone here is used to her and her ability. So she chooses to stay behind as her best friends go off to College.
With her friends gone she throws herself into Church functions, playing her music and full time babysitting for families around town. She likes to play her cello at a small pub on the outskirts of town. One night while she was playing, she get's this over-whelming flood of emotions and comfort. She's so carried away in the song - she just chalks it up to a really great performance. After her set she walks over to the bar, get's her soda from the bartender and sit's in a corner booth to read her book. She gets the same warm feelings again and looks up to see a man in a corner booth across the room staring at her. She tries to look away, but she is caught in his stare.
She snapes the book shut and grabs her stuff and leaves. As she was pulling out of the parking lot, she see's the same man in her rearview mirror starring at her as she leaves. She's very creeped out by this.
-----without going into too much more detail -----
Basically her and the guy end of having some pretty serious feelings about one another. I like to say this is a paranormal romance as the guy can't read minds, but he can speak to people directly and persuade them to do things...similar to mind control. BUT he's not a bad guy. He looks like a bad guy (except he's hot) but he's a very gentle soul and he is drawn to this girl for reasons he can't explain.
They don't have any crazy adventures together - but there is an evil presence that comes into town and starts messing with the girl.
When I first had this dream - as I mentioned above - it felt like a movie I was watching. Except in the dream I was the girl as I was seeing everything first person.
I really want to dive into this book first as I think it's an amazing story. It's so awesome letting your imagination take over something and seeing what you can produce.
That's all for now....
