Six Sentence Sunday April 17

Emma’s first magic lesson gets a little out of control:

She looked down at it and thought about it moving, shifting and rising just with her thought. The dark power inside her hummed with an eagerness that made her nervous, but she kept going. She imagined that power coming out of her and lifting the sand. A flutter she thought at first was the wind went around her and shifted the sand. Then the area she’d been concentrating on lifted in a spinning whirl. A small tornado of sand almost as tall as her formed, pulling up more and more sand around it.

Six Sentence Sunday April 17 — 15 Comments

  1. Kind of like a first driving lesson…Will her teacher have to hit the brakes? Or will she continue to build her tornado of sand until it’s completely out of control?

  2. Great description. Love this line especially: “The dark power inside her hummed with an eagerness that made her nervous, but she kept going. “

  3. First introduction to power… like learning to wiggle your ears: awkward and fun and obsessive.
