Vaironian Tides: Chapter 24

Tolrek’s misunderstanding about Darion causes him some frustration in Vaironian Tides, Chapter 24. Here’s an excerpt:

“I feel like a fool,” Tolrek admitted to his sister. He drove around the city, still trying to get the image of Darion and the pregnant woman out of his mind. Needing to talk to someone, he’d called Sheyla, trying to manage his pain. “I didn’t even know he was seeing someone. You’d think there would be news of it somewhere. How was he able to keep things quiet?”

Vaironian Tides: Chapter 23

Darion reacts to seeing Tolrek again, in Vaironian Tides, Chapter 23. Here’s an excerpt:

The rawness in his voice surprised him. He was thankful for the level of restriction on the top floor. Sensitive matters were often discussed in the various conference rooms. As a result, few were permitted to be in the area, unless expressly authorized. During a time like this, when he was struggling so acutely with his feelings, he didn’t want others to witness it.
