Food in books. What an original topic! I don’t think I’ve ever read a post where the author talked about what their characters ate and what they like to eat. But hey, food is important. Hmm. I have to admit, Dez doesn’t eat too much during DESTINY’S FIRE. She spends a lot of time sparring with Jace, trying to figure out Reese, and keeping away from the Narcos.
But when she does slow down, she likes burgers. And chocolate milkshakes. This is probably her favorite food, and she really likes to dip her fries in her shake. Strange? Probably. But the salty mix with sweetness does it for her. Kind of like the difference between Jace and Reese, and what she loves about them . . . yet just wants them to stop fighting long enough so she can have them both in her life at the same time.
Here’s a quick teaser during one of her burger eating scenes:
I opened my menu as the waitress approached our table. She held a small tablet. “What are we having today?”
I quickly scanned the menu. “I'll take a burger and shake.”
Reese ordered the same, and she punched our order into her tablet. She turned to go, but I called out, “Um, wait.” She sidled back up to our table. “Are you the only one working the floor today? Normally there're a few girls…” My face flamed as I trailed off. I wasn't trying to embarrass her. I was only curious.
“Yeah, I am.” She rolled her eyes. “No one else showed up for work today except a few of the kitchen staff.” She blew her blond bangs off her forehead. “Not happy about that, but it's dead anyway.” She shrugged and bounced off.
“Weird,” I muttered. I checked out Reese's reaction, and I knew he felt the strangeness, too. There was something not right. I didn't know how I knew, but I could sense it.
To find out what's not right and what happens next, watch for Destiny's Fire in 2012!
Thank you for stopping by and sharing some food for thought, Trisha!
