.An unedited snippet from a manuscript we are working on. Set in Victorian England.
Jacob Doone visits London in search of his twin brother. His only lead, a flyer advertising a production of, Dr Faustus, at the Regents Theatre. On the back his brother had penned. Must see! M, is simply outstanding. Love J.
M, turns out to be Mephistopheles. Played by the enigmatic, Christian DeLaCroix
Christian checked his pocket watch, not yet three thirty. He leaned down and roused Jacob from his slumber. “I must go. I won’t have your reputation spoiled. I promised myself I’d be gone before the cock crows.” He waggled his brows at the pun then kissed the sleep warm face. “I shall call at Literati, shall we say three?” At Jacob’s nod he kissed him again then groaned, forcing himself from Jacob’s grasp.
