#WeekendWritingWarriors Snippet from Stevie-girl and the Phantom Pilot

Welcome all you Weekend Warriors!  Today I'm going back to the beginning of my Phantom Series to Book One, Stevie-girl and the Phantom Pilot.  This scene is near the middle of the book when Jase takes Stevie out to the field to show her where the small plane had crashed.  However, something doesn't want her there . . . this is what happens (Lady is Jase's dog):

          That’s when it began to rain, right out of the clear blue sky. The rain was not water, but tiny balls of gray jelly. They stuck to our clothes, tangled in our hair, and sizzled when they touched our skin, but they didn’t burn. At least I didn’t think they had, until I looked at Jase and he looked at me and our mouths fell open at the same time. Both our faces were dotted with little round marks the exact size and color of pencil erasers.
           Lady had high-tailed it for the barn as soon as the drops started to fall. She knew this wasn’t your typical cats-and-dogs type rain.
           “What is it?” I shouted as we dashed toward the barn.
