#8Sunday: Who was the woman who had died?

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve been able to participate in 8 Sunday/Weekend Writing Warriors. I’m going to pick up with Destiny’s Chance, a reincarnation erotic romance.

To recap: Destiny and her friend Zoe are in a car accident. Afterwards, Destiny awakens and finds that “Zoe” has been killed, and that she has been reincarnated in Zoe’s body. Her friend’s ex-boyfriend Chance takes Destiny who he believes is Zoe, home to recuperate from the accident. In this scene, Destiny is thinking about how little she knew about her friend…

That was how Zoe was. An introverted extrovert if there was such a thing. Zoe had known far more about her than Destiny had ever learned about her friend. Had she had an inkling she would die young and thus eschewed intimacy to avoid hurting those who might come to care for her? Laura had theorized that some people were travelers, passing through life on the way to someplace else. She’d speculated whether the individuals existed as flesh and bone at all. But it was just a theory. Laura at her most fanciful.

Destiny’s Chance Blurb

Destiny Grable can’t help that she’s fallen in love with  Chance Everett, her best friend’s boyfriend, but she’s never, ever acted on her feelings — until she and Zoe are in a car accident, her friend is killed, and she is reincarnated in her body. She never wished for something like this to happen, but perhaps now she’ll be free to love Chance the way she always wanted to.

Chance might have had pursued Destiny, but he has a kinky side and she was a nice girl. But now she’s dead, and the accident has forced him to take in his ex-girlfriend. As soon as she recovers and moves out, he’ll get on with his life.

Will two star-crossed lovers find happiness?

    Nice 8.

  14. It might have been easier for Zoe to fit in Destiny’s shoe what the other way around.
    Maybe Laura can help, she seems to have some insight.

  15. Great train of thought there.
