Paddy Plays in Dead Mule Swamp- Chapter 13

cover for Paddy Plays in Dead Mule Swamp cover design by Farah Evers
Getting this chapter written is HUGE! It's a pivotal moment in the book when everything changes, very emotional. I hope I've done it justice. I'm sure with some input from beta readers I will get it there, if I haven't done so already.

Now, I need to take a symbolic deep breath, because that's what Ana would need to do, and make decisions about what she would do next. About how it changes the pace and depth of her interest in the "mysterious" situation.

Here's an excerpt from the current Chapter 13:
    Sunny’s face darkened and her eyes flashed. “I didn’t! It’s not mine.”
    Although Sunny was looking stormy, I watched the color drain away from Star’s face. Her skin turned a muddy gray-brown and she began to sink to the ground. I grabbed for her, and managed to keep her from toppling over, but she ended up on the grass in a tangle of knees and elbows, clutching the bracelet. Tears were running down her face.
