Chapter Fourteen – Blood Yellow

“I don’t think you fully understand what you are getting yourself into by messing around with Jonothon. He’s a man, and despite how much you disagree, you are a woman, and because of that the man will try and take advantage of you Leigh.”
“Abb, you don’t know what you are talking about. This isn’t the same time-frame you grew up in. A lot has changed and you don’t know what it is you are speaking of. So please stop.”
“You seem to be forgetting something little girl. While I granted you the power to open this facility here and run it, you, dear bent, are mine at the end of the night.”
She bit back her remark; she knew her place…for now. “Yes Sir’ Abb.” She lowered her head in obedience. He would pay for this embarrassment. There may be no one around, but he would pay. He didn’t have to do this to her. She was the only one who ever did anything of value for him.
“Are you sure your boy toy was able to track them?”
“Yes, Jonothon wouldn’t let me down.”
“Yet. He hasn’t let you down YET. Have Jonothon come see me at once upon his return. Do not let me catch you with him again Leigh. We are NOT like that. He is beneath us. Have I made myself clear?”
“Yes Abb.” Leigh silently counted to ten. If she struck now, she’d lose the element of surprise and she would need that to defeat her abb.
“You see my bent; I won’t allow anything or anyone to come in the way of me regaining my throne. If that means you not having your boyfriend then so be it. You would be wise to remember who you work for.”
She looked at her abb, she knew the kind of man he was, but she never experienced his anger. “I never doubt that abb. I know this is your most treasured task. I won’t let you down.”
“You better not.  Because I don’t need an heir to rule, you would be wise to remember how expendable you can be.” He waved his hand in a dismissive nature and signaled her to leave his sight.
Leigh was torn between killing him now or waiting until the throne was within grasp and taking it from him. She walked down the chamber halls until she found her office.  Her mind was running different solutions through itself on how to eliminate her abb when she opened the door to see Jonothon sitting at her desk.

Ten Things You Didn’t Know About Ashley

1.      I am actually very shy in unfamiliar situations, it takes A LOT for me to put myself out there like I have been since I became a published author.
2.       I have a very twisted imagination (this is assuming you Haven’t read my Blood Series)

3.       It takes a lot to become a part of my inner trusted circle, but once you are there I’ll never let you go. I make friends for life.

4.       English was my hardest subject all through school, I preferred Math.


6.       I’m the oldest of three but often times I wish I was the youngest. I longed for an older sibling growing up, someone to look up too and seek out for guidance.

7.       My favorite color is purple, but my second favorite is green. Emerald green.

8.       My favorite number is 2 – and no that has nothing to do with the fact I was born on the 22nd.

9.       There was a point of my life in high school where I had an obsession with sweaters. I friggin loved them. Anything I saw a new style at the mall in the winter season I had to get it. When I moved away at college I brought all 54 sweaters with me.

10.     I miss being a teenager. There is so much I wish I could go back and redo and things I would change. But luckily, I have no regrets.

Ashley is married and lives in Houston with her husband Tony. They have two dogs named Toto and Doogie. They have been together for almost 8 years and he brings her more joy than she could ever imagine as a child. She loves to read and has been hooked on the romance genre ever since her lifelong best friend Laura gave her "Ashes to Ashes' by Tami Hoag to read when they were younger.
Ashley finds her strength through her family, especially her parents. They always support her in life and they push her to strive for greatness. There once was a motto that Ashley heard in her youth through her Taekwondo life 'Reach for the Stars' and that is what Ashley has always done. It was through her upbringing that the values Ashley has and display's came from. With her Parents always cheering her on in life she was able to grow up having faith in herself and her ability to conquer the world.
