If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

8 sentences from Bloodstone- continuing from last week (HERE



Ebony had been cleaning in her father’s study and came across a small silver ring with a slice of jade flush with the band. When she touched the piece of jewelry a jolt sprung from the object to her fingers and made all the hair on her forearm stand at attention, like static electricity, but concentrated to one area. An itch spread over her skin, like a residual coming and going of energy. An urge to push the ring on her finger compelled her.
A wave of energy slammed into Ebony knocking her body back against the wall. She lost her breath for a few seconds. She hit her head so violently an image of huge black horns curling out of skin flashed before her eyes. She could see every little detail.

Oh boy! She's got a whole lot more magic now...but those black horns sound like an omen to me! Very exciting, nice snippet.

Elaine Smith said...

I love the unexpected reaction she experienced after touching the jewellery. The sight of some horned thing was chilling.

ps I had a moment of head scratching when I read "the jolt sprung" - isn't it sprang? Feel free to know better if I'm barking up a UK only tree ;)

I'm really enjoying this story Summer.
