Awakening A Witch #14 - Six Sentence Sunday

How sad, we've arrived at the last day for Six Sentence Sunday!

As promised, I'm finishing the Six Sentence Sunday blog hop with my work-in-progress Awakening a Witch. For earlier excerpts from this historical paranormal romance work-in-progress, click here.

*****

Set Up: This excerpt follows shortly after my last post on this story. Alex rescued Mattie from a storm, and now they are alone in a little cottage.  They've heard a strange noise outside, and Mattie realizes there is an extraordinary woman in the wood.  Then, something starts to happen to Mattie that she can't explain.  She thinks she is ill and having hallucinations.

My Six (we are still in Mattie's POV):
          Her fever arrived with a vivid hallucination. 
          Her stone pendant seemingly grew hotter against her skin, but she resisted the urge to drop it, tightening her fingers around the heat instead.  She would not lose her necklace again.  The fiery intensity spread, stabbing her body with sharp, powerful sensations.
          When she swayed into Alex, he embraced her and guided her to the stool by the fire.  She let him.  Thankfully, he didn’t seem affected by the illness yet.

Thank you for stopping by on your busy Sunday to check out my six! I hope you enjoyed them. And, a special thanks to everyone who comments! I have been delighted to read your comments every week.
