The Safe Place Excerpt from 'Secrets of the Warren':
It was a perfectly beautiful day. The sun was shinning, the birds were chirping, and Mercy was acting like... well, Mercy. She was sitting beside me on the dock that led into the lake, her legs dangling over the edge. It was unnatural seeing her in anything but a t-shirt and jeans, but that day she was wearing a red sweater and her golden locks were pulled back in a braid, not a pony tail.
"Fire Face, can water injure you?"
I glanced at Mercy and raised an eyebrow. "And I thought you were an expert on magic," I remarked. "No, only water attacks can hurt me. I can still swim in water."
She nodded subconsciously, lost in thought. "So it wouldn't hurt you if I did this...?"
Before I even had the chance to respond, Mercy grabbed me by the shoulders and gave me a shove into the water. A few moments later, I emerged from the water.
"What was that for?"
She swung her legs back and forth, smirking. "Payback."
"For what exactly?"
"Everything. Dragging me on this journey, letting me get kidnapped by pirates, rescuing me from a kraken..." She offered her hand to me.
I grabbed it, but instead of letting her help me get out of the water, I pulled her in with me.
(( Note: I'm much more descriptive in my book, but I shortened it down so I would have room for other things.))
I'm not sure if I made a studio like this before...
