Her long brown hair blew in the wind — she had taken off her straw bonnet, and held it in one hand, waving it at him and smiling as if she were glad to see him.

*sigh* Will.... Thank you to everyone who has supported Alyssa and I with #TEAMWILL during the YA Tourney! Here's to another fabulous upcoming match!


  1. "He reached out for her-" LONG, HEAVY PAUSE....UUUUUUUGGGHHHH!!!

    >_< Mega congrats to Will, though I had complete faith in him! I will now be praying for Jem's success! <3 Thanks so much for sharing this snippet! Cassie's great at both cheering us up and torturing us as usual...

  2. I seriously don't want anything bad to happen to my favourite characters . . . I love Will . . . but I just don't want my Jem's heart to be broken. *sniffles* These books will kill me - that's for sure! :)

    1. I am so scared for Jem as well! :( I'd literally cry if something bad happens to him! and what's with that Will&Jem snippet from earlier on? I have a very bad feeling about that one...

  3. Aaaaargh, this is TORTURE. Clockwork Princess should come out already D:

    Also, congratulations to Will! \o \o \o I didn't think he'd win, but that's a pleasant surprise :D

  4. My poor Will.
