Poison Me Excerpt

Excerpt from Poison Me


Jake studied Chanel for a moment and then turned to Ellie with a warning glance. “Don’t even think about it, Aunt Ellie. I’d rather take you to dinner.”

Ellie laughed. “I’m flattered, dear, but Marissa informs me I’m too old.”

“Darn right,” Marissa said. “Disgusting the way you throw yourself at the boy.”

Ellie chuckled. “At least I have fun,” she said, then hollered, “Chanel? Get out here and meet Ruby’s grandson.”

Ruby watched the interchange with trepidation. How would Jake handle Ellie’s interference? Would he ever allow himself to fall in love again?

“Aunt Ellie,” Jake said under his breath. “Stop, please.”

Chanel glanced at Ellie and held up a finger.

“I can find my own dates.” Jake jammed a hand through his dark hair.

Ellie grinned. “I’m sure you can, but you never involve me, and you know how I hate to be left out.”

He crossed his arms and frowned, not answering. Ruby wished Ellie would leave him alone, but someday he’d have to put himself back in the dating market. What better time than now? Chanel was a darling girl.

Seconds later, Chanel hung up the phone and walked to their table. Her eyes flickered to Jake before she focused on Ellie. She pulled a bit of her hair forward, shadowing the large birthmark that started at the corner of her left eye and disappeared on her forehead beneath her gold-highlighted hair. “Good morning, ladies. Can I do something for you?”

“You sure can.” Ellie jabbed her finger at Jake. “We need you to take this fine young man off our hands.”

Jake’s face darkened. Ruby waited, wondering if he would explain he wasn’t dating and probably never would be. Instead he plastered on a smile and stood to shake the activities director’s hand. “I’m Jake and these sweet—” he stared pointedly at Ellie “—ladies are giving you a hard time.”

  11. In my humble opinion nitrocut's formula is extremely smart. Due to the fact from the long-lasting final results it's testo booster ingredients
    tribulus terrestris and fenugreek make it the best choice
    when it comes to dietary supplements for muscle growth.

    Although because of it's nature you won't see any
    overnight accomplishment, however the testosterone boosting
    ingredients will slowly and steady do their duty

  12. It seems a lot more and more, older males in the late 20s towards the mid 40s are obtaining concerned with females starting from 16-20.
    Just in a common social observation, both the females and males seem to want these kinds
    of relationships, and it often finishes in a brief time and it is
    emotionally damaging.

  16. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
    her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic
    but I had to tell someone!

  18. Lard or similar animal body fat. This can be only oils.
    If you're cooking at high warmth, that's a great way
    to go. And if rendered appropriately, it does not taste meaty.
    Also lard in my experience, does properly when the product has been cooled, and does not congeal unless there is lots of it or it's extremely cold.

  20. It would be tough to accomplish it in significantly less than 30 minutes.
    Generally I do it concurrently with other things like the veggies roasting in
    the oven (~20 minutes) and then the meat around the grill (~10 minutes)
    so a meal by using a sauce usually takes my 30
    minutes simply because I'm very utilised to mutitasking like that.
