Since today is the 25th, I will share a snippet from my WIP Celeste's Revenge, the sequel to Elise's Choice.
I flipped to my stomach and buried my head in my pillow. Sven. That marvelously sweet kiss. Why did he . . . why had I . . .
“Argh!” I couldn’t think about that right now.
“Celeste?” Concern quavered Grandmama’s voice. “Do you need me to come up there?”
“No.” I used my elbows to prop myself so my voice would carry. “I’m just trying to get comfortable.”
“If you’re certain.”
“I am, Grandmama. G’night.”
“Good night, dear.”
“Cross your fingers and kiss ’em so the sprites bring you pleasant dreams.”
Fluffing my pillow, I smiled at Grandpapa’s admonition. I wouldn’t have to worry about pleasant dreams. With my thoughts swirling like a whirlwind, I would be fortunate to sleep at all.
