2022 A to Z posts have been reserved for descriptive 100 word posts. However, today’s post is a modified excerpt from Chapter 18 of “The Ember Files.”
“…His soft skinned hands are pushing and pulling a gummy thread of magic. I goggle at him when he bobs his head down and takes a bite of the magic thread and chews it…a bubble pushes out from between his lips and breaks away, growing bigger. The bubble moves into the sky, over taking the birds flying away, causing them to disappear…My hands are attached to the threads of magic before I can give consent…and the gluey threads of magic adhere to my hands…It’s warming up as I work it like an oversized marshmallow being agitated between my palms.”
