Absolution
Author:Amanda Dick

“You will,” she smiled, trying to put him at ease. “I’ll be the one in the white dress.”

 

That seemed to do it. He winked, his lips tilting into that lazy, crooked smile that melted her insides. “Great, thanks for the tip.”

 

She nodded graciously.

 

“One more thing, before I go,” he said, his expression softening as he reached down to smooth her hair back from her face. “You look so beautiful today.”

 

She smiled up at him as he leaned down to give her one final, reassuring kiss.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

 

 

Amanda Dick is a night-owl, coffee addict, movie buff and music lover. She also writes.

 

She is rather partial to dark chocolate and believes in the power of a good vanilla latte. She has a passion for the colour green (particularly in clothes and gemstones) and insists there is nothing sexier than a man in a kilt.

 

She spent several months traveling around Europe in her late 20’s (there’s a story there – she’ll get around to writing it one day). After ridding herself of her wanderlust, she met the love of her life (while working to pay off said wanderlust) in Edinburgh, Scotland. They moved in together the week after their first date – so yes, she believes in love at first sight. She also believes in women’s intuition and following your heart.

 

She writes on her trusty laptop, predominantly late at night, when it’s quiet and interruptions are few. Most of all, she enjoys writing about human behaviour – love, loss, joy, grief, friendship and relationships in general. She loves to put normal, everyday people into situations that will test their boundaries. She is passionately curious about how we, as human beings, react when pushed to the edge.

 

After living in Scotland for five years, she now lives back home in her native New Zealand with her husband and two children.
