“Repeat thee and lose thee. Sing thee and lose thee.” These are the words that have plagued Lark’s dreams for as long as she can remember, but what do they mean?
Seventeen year old Lark Spur has seen odd things her entire life. She siphons the years from those who are dying, but would rather be rid of such a distasteful magic.
At a young age she realized the peculiar happenings when she would visit her deaf grandmother in the nursing home. Noting that they were associated with her and the other residents, she started to write things down, make notes. The victims even thanked her for lessening their pain on several occasions.
That is, until Dane came to town. Dane’s unsettling stare holding the amused smirk on his face only makes her wonder if he knows…her secret. Every day, he watches her. When he started popping up in places other than school, her fear rose beyond just possible boy stalker.
And worse, when she learns his true identity, she finds he is trouble and 100% part of the same circle of creatures she belongs too. And worse, he is not there to help her, but to take her away. Lark despises him and his hold on the secrets to who she really is. Yes, she had heard of him for years, but she was told to stay far away from him. She tried even now. It didn’t work.
Dane Crawford knows his place. It’s with the Siphon Council which he will soon have a place beside his father, the leader. He has worked hard to get to this level no matter what opposing belief systems he held to his father.
Sent to bring in one of their own, Dane didn’t foresee who, or what she would soon do to change the course of his life forever. She is the one his father has been searching for. The one he fears more than any other siphon.
Musical Muse Music guides my mood. Always has, always will. After fifteen years of teaching, it is prevalent in much of the teens of today too. I’ve even gone so far as to test different music selections on free writing days to see what kind of results it gets. It’s a fun test of the minds and warrants so many different possibilities. Fast, dramatic “car chase” music as I call it, will most often result in the guys typing ninety to nothing. Turn on a little Titanic, the soundtrack, in the background and the girls get dreamy and the ideas start flowing. As with me, it depends of the part of the story I’m typing at the moment as to what playlist I download to play. Some music apps even have premade lists that get the ideas flowing and often I find a song to add to another playlist. A character’s traits and demeanor sometimes play into the list chosen. What about the finale? Like a good drama on television, the music picks up, you edge to the corner of the sofa, your eyes refuse to blink until the moment you’ve waited for booms across your surround sound. That’s what music does to a story on the pages of a book. So why not play music when you write…or read your favorite book? Pick a tempo that fits with the plot at each given moment or chapter in a book and try it.
