Let’s see a show of hands for being absentminded.
Whether you’re a teen, tween, middle-aged or a senior, we all have our moments. Unfortunately, as you progress from teen to senior the moments increase.
My moment: I lost the TV remote and found it the next morning in my purse. When I mentioned ‘my moment’ to a friend, she told me she found her misplaced cell phone in her freezer.
Okay, I’ve told you mine. Will you tell me yours?
For a chance to win a PDF of THE CRYSTAL, a paranormal romance, just leave a comment and share your most absentminded moment. A random drawing will be held and announced June 6 at sandracox.blogspot.com.
Excerpt from THE CRYSTAL
Gabby paused as she caught a glint of color out of the corner of her eye. She craned her neck to see, but the shimmer disappeared. Curious, she walked in the direction the flash of green came from. A row of black capes blocked her view. She pushed them aside and stared into the shadowy corner. Hidden in the gloom, was a sea-green crystal ball. It stood in solitary splendor on an antique claw-footed stand.
She took a step forward and ran her index finger along its smooth surface. The globe felt toasty warm against her damp skin.
Drawn, she splayed her fingers until her palms nestled around it. A delicious wave of heat ran through her, like sitting in front of a crackling fire on a cold winter night. Ecstasy coursed through her body.
Transfixed, she watched the glowing green crystal change to blue, its hues dancing and sparking like moonbeams on the water.
The crystal pulsed beneath her hand.
By degrees, the feeling of warmth disappeared…and fear crept in.
Her breath hitched in her throat as the color in the crystal fell away and a face formed. Its blurred outline moved back and forth, wraithlike and then sprang into sharp focus.
She felt the color drain from her face, as her nerveless fingers dropped from the ball. The face in the globe belonged to the hard-eyed stranger she’d bumped into outside the shop, only moments before.
