She faced the front porch where James stood, his face leached of color. “Walk toward me as fast as you can.” His voice cracked.
A rabbit lunged past, and she watched its urgent flight.
What? The bully was at it again, this time issuing orders. She sighed and stepped off her rung on the fence. James was about to learn she didn’t obey tyrants. She released the top plank and would’ve turned to go, but something in his voice startled her.
“Don’t look back, Lily. I’m begging you. Come to me.”
She glared at him.
His face crumpled, and he bounded off the porch and ran toward her.
The beast was chasing her! And he looked…crazed. No. Terrified. The only other time she’d seen such a look was when—
Everything turned red. She was enveloped in a cloud. Fine dust stung her eyes and throat, choking her. She gasped, inhaled dirt, and coughed. Her mouth snapped shut, sand grinding between her teeth. She closed her eyes and hid her face behind the flimsy sleeve of her dress, protecting her nose and mouth. But it was no use.
Shaking. The earth was shaking. Wind gusted, shrieked and moaned, almost as loud as her racing heart. Surely it would burst right through her chest. What’s happened? Is this a tornado?
Wind-driven sheets of dust blasted into her flesh like piercing needles. She tasted dirt, smelled dirt, cried dirt.
“Lily, grab the fence.” James coughed and sputtered. “The fence!”
She tripped over her own feet to reach the corral and latch on. She clung there, wind and dust swirling around her, lifting her braid up into the air. Please, God, help me!
Sounds like a great story to me! Again, Waiting for Lily Bloom will be available next Saturday and will be 50% off on that day only!
Well Friends, I hope you enjoyed this spotlight as much as I did. It is always a pleasure to bring to you a fellow author and even richer for it to be a PBG author.
Tomorrow is Palm Sunday which begins Easter week. I pray you take some extra time to spend with the Lord during this special time in our Christian faith.
Don't forget, today is the last day to enter TWJ Magazine's Virtual Easter Basket Giveaway!

Until next time....take care, God Bless and remember....Regardless of your mistakes~God LOVES You! Therefore walk tall, proud & in confidence that HE is on your side.
