Today's Tuesday Tease
is from my first YA Paranormal Fantasy
True Fate
Strange things have always happened to Nia, and until now she’s written them off as flukes. At nineteen she has seen her fair share of odd occurrences and just feels lucky.

When Nia unknowingly spoke a prophecy on her eighteenth birthday she freaked out her best friend, Rhea. Nia realizes she needs to find some answers. Rhea makes her promise to go and see her Great Aunt Amarie, but she isn’t sure if her crazy aunt could really help.

Nia finds herself unexpectedly drawn to a stranger and begins dreaming of people who seem to know everything about her.

They offer little in the way of information as to how and why. It all feels too real but Nia is unsure, at least until she wakes up with a trinket from the encounter.

When dreams and reality collide Nia will have to face dangers she never knew existed. Ready or not she will have to discover her True Fate.
Now onto the Tease!

"Hey honey," her mom, Margie’s lightly accented voice sang through the car speakers.
"Hi mom." Nia said biting her lip.
"How is everything going sweetie?" Margie asked.
"Great. Is something wrong mom?"
"What? No sweetie but your dad said to call you, he said and I quote, he hasn't heard from you in a while and he's worried. You know how he can be." Her mom said in the sweetest way possible.
"Sorry about that I have been kind of busy. Umm I'm kind of on a date right now." Nia explained wanting to melt under the seat as Aaron looked at her adoringly but she knew her cheeks were flush.
"Oh goodness, sweetheart! That's fantastic! How's it going? Do we know him? Is he cute?" Margie rattled off the string of questions before Nia could stop her.
Correction, she no longer wanted to hide, she wanted to die...... right now.
"Wow! Umm, mom? It's going great and no you don't know him yet and he is definitely hot.” She looked at him and he smiled. “His name is Aaron and by the way, you're on speaker."
“Oh... well... um, I'm sorry honey. And hello Aaron it's nice to sort of meet you. You're welcome at our home anytime." Margie said with a shaky and clearly mortified voice.
"Thank you Mrs. De La Garza" Aaron said wincing as he finally chimed in.
"Oh please call me Margie." Nia’s mom insisted.
"Okay, I'll try but I can’t guarantee it, that’s just how I was raised." He responded politely.
Interrupting Nia asked, "Hey, Mom? We’re headed that way. Is Dad there?"
"Oh, yes we're having a late dinner. I used the slow cooker. It's been a long day." Margie explained sounding tired.
"We can be there in thirty." Nia said feeling dread set in at the prospect of her dad meeting Aaron.
"Great! Well then I will see you soon honey! Bye!" Margie sung again as she hung up the phone ending all their awkward misery.
'That had to be the most embarrassing conversation in the history of my life.' Nia sent to Aaron because it was easier to think than say.
"It's fine really, I thought it was sweet. And I found out some interesting information too.” he said with a huge grin.
"Oh yeah, and what was that?” she asked laughing.
"You think I'm hot." Aaron said as a wide grin spread across his face.
