Our very own admin wizard and sprinter, Elizabeth Davis, has hit 15,000 words and achieved that coveted Silver Pen status! Congratulations, yaaaaahs.

Victoria bit her lower lip but couldn’t quite smother her smile. “You thought I was sick and you brought me soup?”
“Yes?” he said, answering her grin with his own hesitant one.
She shook her head and gestured towards her door. “Come on in, then.”
So happy for you!
