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.
Not only did Braeden get released from the dungeon, he gets to meet the Empress Teodora! Lucky for him, she needs a scary-looking bodyguard to help her intimidate Kendryk. Of course she just has to poke at Braeden’s sore spot, the nasty marauder, Daciana Tomescu. Edited to squeeze something somewhat coherent into eight sentences.
“He looks very frightening,” Teodora said gleefully. “I think I’ll have him stand behind me at all times in full armor. I can see why Daciana wanted me to get rid of him, but I need to remember she’s just too competitive.”
“Competitive? I’d say she’s . .” Franca elbowed him in the ribs before he could continue, whileTeodora jumped off her horse and stood across from him.
“The dungeon didn’t work very well on you, did it?” She laughed, showing large, even teeth, none of which- to Braeden’s relief- appeared to be fangs.
“Seems not,” he said, adding, “Your Highness,” before he got another jab from Franca.
