Exclusive Excerpt Blog Tour GUARDIAN by COURTNEY COLE @Court_Writes #Giveaway


The blue had been in motion, a blur on the edge of my periphery. It hadn’t made any noise, but there had been movement right next to me. I’m sure of it. 
Aren’t I?
I step inside the door and sink to the dirty gym floor, still scanning the room suspiciously.
Brightly colored championship pennants hang motionlessly from the ceiling. The huge digital scoreboard is dim and dark.  The only noise in this room is the persistent ticking of the wall clock behind me.
There are no voices. 
No one is here. 
Is it possible that my emotions are causing me to see and hear things?  I’m suddenly dizzy again, and I rest my chin on my knees, hugging my legs.
“Whitney?” Brady’s voice echoes from across the gym. “Are you alright?  What’s wrong?” 
He emerges from the boys locker room door and crosses over to me, wearing a black t-shirt that stretches tightly across his chest.   He must’ve had the same idea as me about washing his hands because he smells like soap.

GUARDIAN Synopsis:
  Sometimes, things that go bump in the night are real. 

My name is Whitney Lane.  I’m sixteen years old and at first, I thought I was crazy. 

I kept seeing shadows move along walls, and hearing whispers around corners, but whenever I looked, there was never anything there.  

Until one day, there was. 

Our world isn’t what we think.  There are things around us, good things, bad things, scary things.  
Things that we tell ourselves aren’t real, but they are.   

They’re very real, and they’re terrifying. 

I’ve been swept up now, in a battle of good and evil, confused about love and what is supposed to be love, but isn’t.  I don’t know what to think anymore.  I can’t trust my emotions and I don’t know what is true.  

There’s only one thing I know for sure. 

Nothing is what it seems.
