Hello, lovely readers!
Thought it’d be fun to post a teaser of my work-in-progress: The Wrong Fairy Tale (book 2 of the Spirit Lake Series). I’m closer to finishing the first draft, and should have a release date to announce very soon. Hooray! Happy Tuesday, and enjoy this (unedited) snippet:
From a scene between Geoffrey and Alex; Geoffrey’s POV
“What’s so funny?” I asked.
“You,” she said, shaking her head. “Ben’s pretty protective over me, but I’m sure you already know that. He’s just a good friend, that’s all. And I’m not surprised at your response to him. I would’ve paid to see that conversation. But what’s done is done. Tomorrow’s a new day, and Ethalo is going to teach us how to fight properly. Just duke it out with Ben or something, and then become friends—like all you boys do.” She put her arm through mine. “You and I both have tempers that fly without warning, huh?”
I smiled as we continued walking towards our tent area. “I guess we do,” I agreed. “But you have more control than I. And you’re way nicer.”
“Why, thank you, Geoffrey. That’s probably the nicest comment you’ve made to me today. Except for the whole, ‘I care about you’ thing. Did you really mean that?” she asked when we got to the top of the stairs.
“Yeah,” I whispered. We had stopped walking and were standing in the middle of the common area.
“Good,” she whispered back. “Maybe you can take my KP duties for the rest of our time here, then,” she said while squeezing my arm.
“Hey, that’s not what I meant when I said I cared,” I argued, a little too loudly. But she was already walking away into the girls’ section. I stared after her until she disappeared and shook my head. Chicks were so confusing.
Hope you liked that! And don’t forget–I’ve created some Spirit Lake Series boards on Pinterest, if you’d like to see what I use as visual inspiration.
