I’m truly curious about how many authors can claim psychic abilities. I woke this morning wondering if I have to admit I have some psychic talent.

Cole’s eyes darkened. “Lily. I’m pushing the
line with you. Give me some slack.”
“I want answers, Cole.” She grabbed his arm
as he turned and pulled him to a halt.
He gently, carefully drew her fierce grip
