Fly with you all,
So, I realised I’ve sort of been neglecting posting on all the blogs I guest author on.
It’s been something like six months since I last posted on any of them! D:
To pick up the slack, I’ve decided to release a sneak peek from five all-new stories that I’ve never mentioned before, and post one up on each of the blogs I guest author on.
I’ve already posted Part 1 on Raindrop’s Blog. This post will be Part 2 of 5.
The following Sneak Peek comes from a story currently called ‘The Return’, set not long after Christmas Chaos, the co-story Raven and I wrote at the end of last year.
The Return – Sneak Peek
I sit in the reception room, waiting for my name to be called. As much as I protested, Izzy refused to let me wear my usual purple top and pants. Instead, I wear a black shoulderless sleeve top, with a deep pink miniskirt, black tights and matching boots. It’s nice, but the boots have heels, and I’ve never gone well in heels. Unfortunately, a lot of outfits in the Hollow have heels. Someone really needs to write a letter to the Never Council and complain.
I look up. The receptionist regards me without expression. “The Queen will see you now.”
“Ah, Rose, just in time! Please, join us.”
The Queen smiles warmly. She wears a simple gown today, similar to the one she usually wears. This one is also golden, with intricate swirling patterns on the skirt.
Another fairy is with her – she has tanned skin, long black hair and bears the outfit of a scout fairy. She stares at me, and I have a feeling she’s sizing me up, assessing the best way to take me down in a fight. I swallow.
“Rose, this is Nyx. She’s one of my most trusted scouts. We have experienced a problem that may need your expertise.”
She gestures to Nyx, who nods.
“We found something early this morning in Summer Glade that can’t be explained. A whole patch of the place has been iced over completely – ground, plants, everything. Do you know of anyone who has this kind of magic?”
I frown. “No, I’m afraid not. Is it possible a winter fairy could have done it?”
Nyx shakes her head. “A winter fairy would never be able to get that far, not even with a snow maker to keep them cool. Their wings would break.”
“Are there any signs of melting?” I ask.
“No, it’s still as solid as we found it. It’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.”
The furrow in my brow deepens.
“Is there a chance I could take a look?”
So what do you think? Please let me know in the comments. I love hearing from you. 😉
