Sunday is upon us again, and so is Six Sentence Sunday!
Coral’s rival Spike is put out by her refusal to set a time to duel him and tries to blow her time with the new warlock in town, Ty.
“What’s she got over you that you’re ferrying her around?”
“Not a thing,” Ty said evenly. At Spike’s doubting grunt, he asked, “It doesn’t occur to you someone might want to ferry around a pretty girl for the fun of it?”
“Coral?” Spike burst out laughing. “You have a lot to learn, newbie.”

I’m back again after a vacation on which my hard drive gave up the ghost. After a successful reinstall, I’m ready for more sixes from my YA fantasy romance, Seaside Sorcery. Coral weasels out of tight spot with her rival Spike, yet he may still embarrass her in front of the new guy in town.
Worse, Spike was watching, an ear-to-ear grin signaling his delight at her predicament. Well, she’d show him.
Coral flattened her body to Ty’s back, snaked both arms around him and linked her hands around his waist. Her cheek had to rest on his shoulder to do it, and the feel of him took hold of her. Ahhh, his black shirt caressed her skin, soft and warm. The scent of cut hay filled her nostrils and Coral found herself thinking about this boy in a way that hadn’t occurred to her before.
