TITLE: Beyond the Wishing Well
GENRE: YA urban fantasy
Devon Zanis stood in front of Eastmont High, watching the train wreck that was her life, unable to do anything to stop it. Sitting on a picnic table was Cooper. And he wasn’t alone.. Next to him, propped under his arm as if she belonged there, was Trisha. Even as Devon watched, Cooper laughed at something the little blond said and leaned down to kiss her. Devon thought her knees might go out when their lips touched. It didn’t stop there, and soon they were fully making out while people around them cheered.
Devon backed into one of the trees surrounding the open area and inched around until she couldn’t see the couple anymore. She closed her eyes, breathing deeply while she got control of her emotions. She wasn’t with Cooper any more, didn’t have a claim on him. He was allowed to go out with whoever he wanted. Devon ran her hands over her face. Okay, breathing deeply wasn’t helping. She still wanted to spit in his face. Or maybe wish …
“You should wish some black roots to go with her blonde hair.”
Devon opened her eyes to see her best friend, Jersey. “You know I won’t do that.” Trisha would get black roots all right – and then her hair would fall out. Or she’d get cancer. Or something equally horrible.
“Suit yourself.” Jersey made a show of cracking her knuckles, the picture made more bizarre because she was five foot nothing. “I can make sure she won’t enjoy kissing anytime soon.”
