Could It Be Magic – Chapter 13

One Step Forward… “Jas,” Amethyst said, “you can’t work from home forever.” He sat at his end-of-the-dining-room-table workstation, sipping from the coffee mug in one hand, clicking and scrolling with the mouse in the other. Today he wore a black sweatshirt that announced Bezos is my Dark Lord in menacing, crackly white letters with a …

Could It Be Magic – Chapter 12

Drives Me Crazy Amethyst woke to Caramela’s soft boof. Early light filtered through the shades, painting the comforter and bedroom furniture in shades of lavender and blue. Ears up, head raised, the dog faced the bedroom door. For an instant, Amethyst wondered why the door was closed. The sound of the water running in the …

Snow Day

In Chapter 15 of Could It Be Magic, Amethyst, Jas, Melodie and Marl go snowboarding at the Sandia Peak Ski Area. I’ve been up on the mountain numerous times for hiking and such, but not being a winter sports* enthusiast, never in the winter. When our first big snow of the season came right after …

Could It Be Magic – Chapter 11

Happy New Year! May your year ahead be filled with magic. Stay the Night It was going to be weird. Amethyst hadn’t thought about that part when she suggested that Jas stay with her. But she thought about it now, remembering how strange it had felt when he’d opened her coat closet for her coat. …

Women, Know Your Limits!

Okay, I’ll admit right up front, the title of this post is clickbait. But it’s applicable– I promise! In Chapter 10 of Could It Be Magic, Amethyst sarcastically apologizes to Jas for offering her opinion by telling him that in the future, she’ll only talk about fluffy little kittens. When I wrote that line, I had this …

Could It Be Magic – Chapter 9

Here’s the next installment of Jas and Amethyst’s romance. Unexpected Visitor That invitation to coffee had been a severe tactical error. After the evening they’d had at (not to mention after) the cocktail party, how else could Jas take their situation but damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead? So here she was at Flying Star, …

Could It Be Magic – Chapter 8

Since I missed posting a chapter last week, here’s a bonus one. If you missed the beginning, you can read it here. Damned If You Do It was a grueling couple of hours, waiting for Jas. Amethyst touched a heat spell to her tea and made herself eat the sandwich. She tidied up (even though …

Could It Be Magic – Chapter 7

Oops. I got busy writing this past week and didn’t get a new chapter posted. Sorry. I’ll post two this week to make up for it. Fear of Falling Amethyst woke feeling like she’d been sick with a fever—dizzy, a little fuzzy, physically lighter than she should. She opened her eyes, pulled her arms out …

Could It Be Magic – Chapter 6

I just realized how short the last chapter was. so to make up for it, I thought I’d better post another sooner rather than later. This one should make up for the last, though, since it’s quite a bit longer. Magic in the Air The pep talk was well-timed, Amethyst decided. Jas turned through an …
