Can they untangle the lies before someone separates them forever?

Excerpt:

In this scene, Gretchen learns that Kian has a secret dream to be a carriage driver on the island. She has a dream of her own and knows the power of them, so she is determined to help him achieve his goal.

"It was a stupid dream. I should sell it, ta pay ya." Kian jerked the covering into place and turned away.

"Nein. No." She followed him. "Dream is not stupid. Dream is good."

She slowed down to hit the correct sound at the end. Just so he understood.

He yanked pieces of oak from the pile near the door and dropped them into her pail.

"I help you with your dream." She pulled out the bigger pieces and returned them to the stack before tugging the handle from his grip. Selecting the right size for the cook stove, she filled her bucket. "You see."

"Why?" He stared at the wood pile and huddled in his jacket.

She didn't want to think too hard about the why. Instead, she clasped the pail to her chest and hustled for the door.

He beat her there and pushed back the snow, so she could squeeze through the opening. Before she exited, he stayed her with a hand on her arm. "Why?"

"Because I have the dreams, too. And you are helping to make them true." She ducked under his arm and walked into the cold. More than he knew. Maybe more than was safe for her heart.

Excerpts

Following the rescue came the terror. Terror for what I’d done, what I could do. The realization that my abilities extended beyond what I had ever, ever anticipated. I’d been pushing myself, not attempting the impossible. Emotions from that night teem inside of me; so much rage from my date, fright for the injured people, and ultimately dismay for myself. For what I am. After fruitless searching, I thought I accepted it. Gave up on ever understanding. But I didn’t. I stare down at my empty yet terrifyingly powerful hands. Clenching them into fists, I spin and sprint away. Again I internalize the useless emotions, the lingering doubt. Hope. This hope I’ve been given is a dangerous thing.
