Welcome to this week’s Six Sentence Sunday post! (Visit the other fab writers here.) I continue to post from Blowing Embers, the second chapter in The Embers Series, a paranormal romance/epic fantasy, set to be released this summer.
Today’s snip is a small jump ahead of where we left off last week. Kiera has managed to make it back to her apartment, where her nephew and his nanny have been waiting for her.
“Oh, Kiera, what happened?” Emmy, Alex’s nanny, gasped. She stood from her seat at the table and rushed over. Took the bottle from Kiera’s hands. “Come sit down . . . let me call a healer!”
Wearing a grimace, Kiera let Emmy lead her across the thick blue carpet to one of the couches crouched in the central area of her very blue home. With a flicker of thought, she lit the fireplace and leaned back into the overstuffed, earth-toned cushions, closed the one eye that hadn’t swollen shut, and waited for the warmth to reach her.
