Last Hurrah from Wintersland....

The last snippet from Wintersland.

Rough draft--please don't quote or repost.

___________________________________________________________

The staff rested on her forehead.  A spike of intense cold radiating from the staff wrung a cry of agony from Katie.

"You will say it," Old Man Winter said.

"Get away from her!" Mel screamed.

Old Man Winter whirled.  Katie gave a sobbing gasp of relief as the spike of torture was removed from her forehead.  Her eyes re-focused, and she saw that Mel stood by the Wishing Tree, and that the Pretender swung from one of its branches.  Mel looked magnificent, and Katie had never been more proud of her sister.

"You dare!" Old Man Winter said to Mel.  His power hit her until she staggered, but the ornament remained untouched

I would love to write a novel I am very proud of anyone who dedicates the time and energy it takes to put all those swirling ideas down on paper in a comprehensible fashion. Good for you
