06:35 am - Paragraph-at-a-Time story, #2
Paragraph-at-a-time, which in this case is, um, five paragraphs but they're short.

End of last time's entry was When she answered it, the voice on the other end was warm, deep, a sorcerer's voice. Tim. "Hey, Jessa," he said without preamble, just as if it hadn't been a year since they'd spoken. "We got a problem. The Branch is about to fall."

Today:



Tim. The Branch. Falling, falling, and the pain --

Without thinking, Jessa put her hands to her eyes to block it all out, and then shrieked.

“Jessa, hon?” Tim said impatiently. “It's bad, the Branch and everything, but you and I together have enough magic to save Summerhaven. Maybe. So--”

“So I know all that, Rodriguez. I accidentally got jalapeno in my eye,” she snapped through the tears.

The phone hummed in her hand, silent. She let the tears go. Falling, falling, and the pain.

May your day be free from kitchen accidents!

Jessa's not enjoying herself at the moment, it's true.

Thank you thank you, Gwynne. Happy end of whatever-day-it-is to you! :-)
