Teaser Tuesday!

I haven't posted a teaser in "forever". This is the opening of the new manuscript I turned in a month ago to my editor.
Current title:
Circle of Secrets

Most folks call Miz Mirage Allemond a swamp witch.
I’m supposed to call her Mamma.
So when Mirage cracks open the front door and I see her wild black hair writhing in the wind like serpents, my pulse goes so fast I can’t breathe right.
Mirage’s black eyes bore into mine like she can read my deepest thoughts. Like she has a crystal ball and uses it regularly.
             As she shuts the front door, we stare at each other for a moment, but I drop my eyes before she can suck my soul out.
