This is a quick scene from a later chapter of the original story I’ve been (kind of) working on, Wishbringer. I haven’t actually reached this point in the story yet but it’s a scene I had rattling around in my head for a while and thought I’d share. Enjoy!
“See that spot over there?” Max asks, stopping from twisting in the swing, the absence of creaking iron almost sucking the air from around them.
“Between the trees?”
“Yeah. Just at the top of the hill. If you lay on the grass there you can see just through the canopy and get a full view of the sky,” he continues, breath fogging around his mouth and dispersing like the clouds in his memory.
Elan doesn’t answer, just hums to acknowledge he’s listening, not sure why Max brought up the subject.
“That’s where Kara Pritcher kissed me last summer.”
