Christmas Blog Hop 18 – 21 December 2012
Join me as I take part in the Tantalizing Tuesday Christmas Blog Hop. The idea behind tantalizing Tuesday is that each participant posts a 200 word teaser.
So without further ado, here is my little teaser - Enjoy!
"I'll be back with the snow."
The whispered words had settled in her conscience and taken root. It's what kept her sane during the long years since, when she started to doubt her own sanity. Had it all just been a dream—a figment of her imagination—justification for what she had done?
Her lands were shrouded in heat. It shimmered on the horizon and steamed of the rooftops after the rare bouts of rain. The only passing of the seasons was the dates marked on the calendar, the Christmas Tree perched in the corner, and looking more droopy every year.
And yet, she clung to the hope of snow, to the promises given in the first flush of love, the one day it had snowed. A freak storm they had called it. A storm that had brought with it the love of her life. A night of passion and wonder was all they'd had before he had melted away with the sun.
She'd have thought him a mere figment of her imagination, but for the arrival of Gracie nine months later. Shunned by her community she waited and planned, eking a meager living for her daughter and her, always waiting for that elusive snowflake—until now.
He hovered outside the window, the flake so close, yet so fragile she was afraid to reach out and break the magic. Tears streamed down her face, as it started to snow in earnest, and the cold wrapped itself around her in a soothing embrace.
"I told you I'll be back."
