It’s time for Weekend Writing Warriors! Every Sunday, a bunch of writers post 8-sentence snippets from their WIPs on their blogs. There’s a lot of reading, commenting and great writing. Click on the link to see the full list.
Since tavern-wenching isn’t a good vocational fit for Janna, she decides it might be safe for her to quietly return to Kaleva and her own family. Before she can go, an imperial courier stops by the tavern to deliver “wanted” posters. Janna reads one, then has to explain to Maya why she’s freaking out. Again. And no, this book is not just one chapter after another of Janna freaking out. Mostly.
“I can’t go back to Kaleva,” Janna said, handing her the sheet.. “In fact, I can’t go anywhere.”
Maya looked it over. “Now see here; just because there’s a Janna on the list doesn’t mean it’s you.”
“But it is me,” Janna said in a small voice. “I’m Janna Kronek, and Anton is Dimir’s son. I suppose they’ll want him too.”
“Now that’s just ridiculous,” Maya said, laying a comforting hand on Janna’s shoulder. “Anyone could take one look at you and see you’re no threat to anyone, least of all the Empress.”
