When I sat down to write for this prompt, I was immediately drawn to the female protagonist in my first novel, Heart Search: Lost. I don’t tend to write very much about the book on this blog, or the main characters, Remy and Joshua. So today I thought, why not? It is rather fitting . . .
Remy travelled around the country, searching for her fiancé who had disappeared mere days before their wedding. It was a journey filled with emotion and heartache, as she re-lived the happy memories they shared at each destination.
Knocking on doors, receiving rejection after rejection nearly destroyed her, but she found an inner strength she didn’t know she possessed, arriving at each new town with renewed hope.
Her search was filled with strange occurrences; objects floated in mid-air and she could hear people’s thoughts, leading her to doubt her sanity. Remy’s dreams were filled with images of Joshua in a strange place, surrounded by beautiful men and women; Joshua himself had become even more handsome and, agonisingly for Remy, had a new woman in his arms. This evoked a new trait in Remy, as hatred and fury coursed through her.
Joshua was hers! She would fight to the death for him, if necessary.
In the last town she visits before being forced to return home, she sees him. His skin is much paler, his lips a ruby red and he looked like a male model, but she knew it was him by his eyes. Joshua disappears, but Remy resolves to keep searching.
