Welcome to my sixth Weekend Writing Warriors ~ Snippet Sunday post! If you missed any of the previous posts, you can catch up on my Meanmna ~ #8Sunday page. This week’s snippet takes place immediately after last week’s snippet.
What you missed: Nothing!
There was no real order of displays in the cramped little retail space at Visions; Celine felt there was no need for such accouterments.
“You’ll know when you find what you need,” she always said.
I started moving carefully around a table of crystals when giggle from near the counter startled me.
Turning quickly I lost my footing and began to fall; I could always count on my clumsiness to make most days interesting.
I grabbed the table to avoid a thunderous fall but made contact with a crystal and cut my hand on the jagged points for my efforts.
After taking a deep breath, I looked around to see who might have witnessed my escapade; no one.
“Great,” I said aloud and threw up my hands in a victory pose; that’s when I heard another giggle.
I put my hands back down and turned slowly, this time, thank goodness, I saw a child poking her head up from behind the counter.
“You’re funny,” she said with a little awe in her voice, “And your colors are so pretty; I’ve never seen them look like that.”
I wasn’t sure what she meant about colors; I was wearing earth tones.
You won’t believe who the little girl turns out to be!
Unfortunately, with only 8-10 lines at a time, it’ll be next year some time before you find out. (Bawha!)
I hope you enjoyed this week’s snippet! Let me know in the comments below!
Check back in next week for Weekend Writing Warriors ~ Snippet 7 of Meanmna: Book One of the Daearen Realms!
But, if you can’t wait for next week…
Seventeen-year-old Sarette has always thought of her life as average, even a bit boring. She does well in school, has a loving mother and a loyal best friend, Mathew. Of course, she has her problems as well—cold Michigan winters, a long-lost father she knows nothing about, and the lack of a boyfriend. She also has the vague sensation that she is being watched by some unseen entity, but figures that means she’s average and crazy.
Nothing could be further from the truth . . .
Daearen isn’t much different than the human world.
Imagine a world where science is replaced with magic.
