Synopsis: Veronica’s first date with Sebastian not only stirs up a powerful attraction, but also a series of supernatural events that will tear them apart.
After countless hours of dead end online dating, Veronica meets up with Sebastian at a reportedly haunted restaurant, since he knows she has a fascination with the paranormal. While enjoying their meals and each other’s company, they share a shocking supernatural experience. Their romantic connection is overshadowed by the ghosts of their own pasts that threaten to destroy their budding relationship. Veronica decides she must return to the restaurant to face her past and dig up more answers. Unfortunately, she realizes she must go back, this time with a reluctant Sebastian. In the end, they join forces against the evil that stands between them, but will they make it out alive?
My review: This is a great short story. Veronica meets Sebastian after chatting on a dating site. They choose a supposedly haunted restaurant as their first date and lo and behold they see ghosts as they enjoy their meal. A couple lovingly sharing date night long after they’ve left this earth. Quite sweet you think but when V&S go back there for Christmas Eve the ghosts aren’t so friendly
History is repeating itself, trapped in a loop that reveals a shared past they weren’t aware they had.
It’s very well written, beautifully described and works well as a short story. Recommended
