What A #Difference A Little #Sunshine Can Make!

Hey Everyone!!! :-)

If, like me, you're in the Northern Hemisphere it's now officially summertime. Where I am, the weather is definitely in tune with the season, lots of sunny, warm days. It made me think about an excursion Roni and Uaine made into a village that never sees a season other than summer and I thought I'd share a glimpse of that with you today.  Sometimes a sunny day can make all the difference in the world :-)

Excerpt from Bound By The Summer Prince:
Noticing that the temperature had increased quite a bit as they walked, he asked; “Are you too warm?”

“Hmmm…?” She said distractedly as she kept her eyes on the passing crowd. “Oh no, I love the heat. I’ve never been a fan of winter.”

Marveling again at how perfect this female was for him, Uaine just smiled and nodded.

“Are you feeling better?”

“A bit. The town feels like a happy place for some reason.”

“Trade is good today, my mother has managed to get a few goods from other kingdoms here, and the people are enjoying their bargain hunting. Their happiness is reflected in the energy of the town.”

“How can I possibly be affected by the local Faes’ happiness?”

“Magic is everywhere in Fairie, it saturates the air and the ground. Some magics, especially wild magics, are heavily influenced by mood. If the local populace were angry, the feel of the town would be very different. It’s even possible that a storm would form.”

“The weather is affected by peoples’ moods?”

“It can be.”

“So it’s sunny today because people are happy?”

“Maybe, but not necessarily. Wild magics are unpredictable. I don’t know how a different mood would manifest, I only know it would be different than it is now.”

Sighing, she shook her head and pulled her hand from the prince’s. “The more I learn about this place, the weirder it seems.”

Uaine walked up behind her and put his hands on her shoulders. “But strange doesn’t necessarily mean bad.” He slid one hand down her right arm and reclaimed her hand. “Come with me, I’d like to show you something.”
