Two weeks ago, I shared the opening six sentences, where you got to meet Mattie (our heroine) and learn about her pendant.
Last week, I shared six sentences that introduced you to Mattie's creepy brother-in-law and his search for gold.
Last week, we met Mattie's hero, Alex.
Set Up: Our hero's younger brother has now joined them in the meadow, just inside the magical barrier.
The younger man’s eyes grew even wider as he stared at Mattie’s necklace. She reached for it again, for the peace it usually gave her, but when Mattie touched it, the pendant slipped free and through her fingers. As soon as the jewelry slid from her skin, a rush of air swept over her leaving her feeling oddly exposed. Her wet skirts pressed against her - suddenly tighter, heavier and colder. Mattie glanced in the direction of the lake, in the direction of help, but all she saw was fog. Then the pendant hit the earth with a soft thud.
Thank you for stopping by to check out my six! I hope you enjoyed them.
