Help me pick an excerpt

I'm feeling chatty when I should be writing.

Over in the 'new prologue' thread we were talking about the scifi/fantasy habit of putting a page-long or so excerpt from the middle of the book at the very beginning, as a teaser to pull people in. If you were to pick an excerpt from anywhere in the story so far, what segment would you pull?

Well, it's already been pointed out that a lot of people click over for teh secks. So..maybe a short blurb of a hot scene? Just a tease, not necessarily um....Hilden and Emmae.
Oooo, what about bits from when Hildin was watching Warrin and Emmae? Bit of teh secks, and a hint of some of the magic.

other than what you have (cuz i like it) i would say Temmin and Allis make out session in the woods. Hot make-outs (not too dirty) and it doesn't give too much away.

I'm with TGC. It's not too racy, 'cause something with hawt secks would probably turn away a lot of people... Or maybe do the scene where Edmerka gets cursed. That was a pretty good one, and it's ambiguous there as to whether or not there are going to be sexins in the story.

TGC's idea is better, though it doesn't hint of any ma...no wait, it does, with the Teacher appearing and disappearing suddenly.
