Wow, time flies! It has been almost a year since I created a post for Facet Fiction Friday. Since so much time has passed, I’ve decided to change the name and start over. We’ll see what happens. :)
So welcome to the first Fast Fiction Friday! Fast because you are allowed to share no more than FIFTEEN sentences, fiction because your work is fiction, and Friday, because well, hmm, it is Friday.
So here we go! Share an excerpt of no more than Fifteen sentences from your family friendly book (man, I love alliteration!) in the comment section below. Make sure to post a buy link—I want others to find your work!
And one last thing…Share this post! If you share, I share, we all share, then we all have our samples read. Easy peasy, right?

She cocked a brow as he rose. “What happened to your face?”
He laid a hand over his chest and dropped his jaw, as if gravely insulted. “My face is as handsome as ever.”
“No, silly. The purple bruise beneath your eye. Did you flirt with the headmaster’s daughter again?” Magnolia enjoyed the flush that swathed her old friend’s cheeks. It made him even more attractive, and across the room, Hesper looked ready to swoon.
“Miss Rotherham might wish for such a game, but I assure you, I did nothing of the sort.”
