Double Jeopardy – StormWeaver #32

I sift through the stringy pond weed, silky mud slipping through my hands.

“They’re gone.” My voice cracks. I didn’t know I was attached.

Chloe snickers. She crouches next to me.

“No silly, I have them.”

She opens her hand to show four more colored pebbles.

All is not lost.

“Give them over,” I say.

“I will if…”

Before she can finish, the ground beneath her feet gives way to the water’s edge.

She tips forward, arms outstretched grabbing at air.

I reach for her waist but alas, we both tumble in and we don’t hit bottom any time soon.

If you didn’t know it, StormWeaver is a continuing story told in 100 word increments. This week’s episode twists unexpectedly. Looks like our young couple are on a real adventure now. Come back next week to see what it’s all about. That is after you’ve read episodes 1-31. Have a magical day! Clare
