“Wait. I need to be with my family for Winter Solstice.” Adrenaline was coursing through her blood. Gemma didn’t like changes in her plans. Plus, she’d never been away from her family at Winter Solstice. She felt her breath become labored. The overwhelming, crushing feeling in her lungs grew stronger and she tried to reach for her duffle. She needed her inhaler but he was walking too quickly for her to keep up. And she didn’t know his name to call for him to stop. Gemma’s head began spinning and then the ringing in her ears started. She stopped walking, bent at the waist and attempted to take deep breaths but her emotions were tilting the scale. There was no way she’d win this battle. Her panic attack was in full go mode. She went to her knees and a strangled sound escaped as she tried to call out to him.
