Sera and Jesse (Humor)
Jesse smirked. “Is that the worst thing you’ve ever done, Miss Sera? Sneak out on your chores?”
“Of course not. But I can’t tell you the worst thing I’ve ever done.”
He looked thoroughly amused now. “How come? I thought we were friends.”
“I don’t hear you volunteering tales of your wickedness, Jesse Quaid!”
“That’s ’cause you’re a lady. And you’d look mighty silly if your ears melted off.”
She snorted. “Fiddle. My ears are as impervious as stone. Fess up. What did you do? Sneak a penny-dreadful inside your school reader? Hide a frog in some pesky girl’s bonnet? Switch the sugar for salt at the church barbecue? Tell me!” she pleaded, stomping her foot in exasperation.
He was folding the pamphlet and shaking his head, those panther-green eyes dancing with mirth.
“I tattled on me! It’s only fair you tattle on you.”
“Miss Sera, I’m quite a few years older than you, so I’ve had quite a few more years to make mischief. Let’s leave it at that.” He repositioned the hat on his head. “Besides. I should be putting Tempest through her paces. I wouldn’t want your brother to accuse me of malingering.”
“As if I’d ever tell Michael what you and I did while he was off minding his patients.”
Jesse turned an endearing shade of red. Sera grinned. She hadn’t meant anything naughty—well, all right. Maybe she had. Just a little. She liked to flirt with Jesse. To see the proof of his attraction to her was a heady pleasure. She wished he would ask her to the Founder’s Day Dance, even if he was just her family’s hired hand.
He returned the pamphlet. In the second that her fingers closed over the paper, a surge of electricity crackled through her hand. She tensed, completely caught off guard. The lightning pulse charged up her arm into her brain.
She gritted her teeth. She realized she was about to have one of her dreaded visions.
