Weekend Writing Warriors #43





Hello Everyone and welcome to this week's eight sentences. I am sharing 'Patrick's Pendant' for the final time this week and continuing more or less straight from last week, enjoy!:


My Eight.

Katie jolted suddenly and opened her eyes dropping the chain to the ground. She blushed, though there was no-one to see her. Inexplicably she sat underneath the tree on the carpet of leaves, some of which continued their dancing circle around her.
Leaning forward she picked up the chain once more and felt its determined pull on her mind as she stared hard at the delicate etching on one side and the smooth silver on the other. It grew warm to her touch and the chain seemed to sparkle as it snaked between her fingers. Her ears pulsated with the thump of her heightened heart beat and her mouth grew dry.
Cautiously Katie closed her eyes.
Oh how her body tingled!

  8. This may just be me--or all the book covers framing this excerpt, but 'how her body tingled' doesn't make me think of pendant-inspired visions, it makes me think of man-inspired thoughts. ;)
