Contest Held Over! You Still Have Time . . .
It's here! The big contest where you could win a $150 gift certificate for a dress like this one from www.edressme.com (you get to pick the dress) and a signed copy of Wind Dancer! All you have to do is tell me how/where you think Samuel and Isabelle would meet if they had their first encounter today.
In my version, Isabelle, her brother Julian, and their guide are taking cover from a nasty thunderstorm under a tree in the forest. Lightning strikes a tree close by causing Isabelle to scream. Samuel is walking through a nearby clearing when he hears the scream and heads toward them to investigate. He circles around to the back of the threesome and then Isabelle suddenly turns and points her long rifle straight at his heart. Isabelle demands he come forward and interrogates him. Samuel finds himself both repelled and fascinated by her fierce boldness. There is some heated banter between them and then Julian steps in to rescue Samuel from his sister's brazen manners. Instant chemistry!
Now it's your turn. How and where might they meet today? Just click on comments at the end of this post and type your answer in the box that pops up. If you don't have an eblogger account you can choose anonymous but then be sure to add your name in the post so that I can reach you if you win! If that seems too confusing you can always email me at jamie@ jamie carie.com (no spaces!) and I will post it for you.
