This week’s selection comes from a new WIP with the working title of “Bewitched”, in which we play with the life of an unfortunate witch, a changeling, and some other fun critters.
The first morning Seraphine woke with the power to alter others’ lives was the first morning she wished to be back in her father’s manor, tucked safely in her bed. Instead, she woke with a deep ache in the lower part of her spine and a rattle in her lungs. the face in the mirror was hers, yet so drastically altered that she scarcely recognized herself. At seventeen years old, she had become an old woman. The promise of immortality and great power had been so tempting; tempting enough that she chose not to think of the consequences before she pricked her finger and signed that proverbial contract in blood.

Ooh…so what happens next, my friend?
…..that’s a really good question. 🙂
Oooh.. now this isn’t one I’ve read before…. and I can’t wait to read the rest of it!!!
It’s Rooster’s fault. He provoked this one because he said it was something he might read. Blame him. 🙂
wow- Very well written- the description is perfect- love the excerpt
*grin* Thanks, Dawne. 🙂
Wow! Gotta know what kind of deal she made. Great post!
As soon as I figure it out, I’ll be sure to let you know.
Uh-oh! That can’t be good! Great six!
Thank you! 🙂
Nicely done! I loved it
I want more… much more out of this. Great six piece.
Thanks! I’ll see what I can do about getting you some more. 🙂
And that’s a great introduction that works for a wonderful hook! I’m in. I want more.
Oh! very interesting!! Looking forward to seeing where this goes! does she become young again? does she stay old forever?
I’m curious to know that myself. She still hasn’t told me what’s going on yet.
Nice! This Six opens a lot of questions that definitely need to be answered! Hope you post more of this!
As I figure out what’s going on, I’ll be sure to share. 🙂
I agree with Kathleen…so many questions just from those 6. Great SSS
Wow, great job. I really liked how your six is so thought provoking, and that’s only from six sentences. Brilliant work.
Thank you. 🙂 I just hope I can keep it going.
Loved this six, makes me want to read more!
I’m so glad you liked it. 🙂
Great introduction to describe her choice to become a different human entity. I liked the signing of the contract in blood.
I love the deep ache in her spine and the rattle in her lungs, but I’m really not clear what ‘later others’ lives’ means…
it should read “the power to ALTER others’ lives.” 🙂
