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.
As Father Landrus’s trial continues, the local population becomes increasingly hostile toward the Empress Teodora, heckling her whenever she appears in public. As her head of security, Braeden suggests she travel to and from the trial anonymously. Teodora disagrees. Creative editing and punctuation has occurred.
“What’s the point of being empress when you can’t let people see that you are?”
“I don’t know, Your Highness.”
“I wasn’t expecting an answer- you really are quite dense, aren’t you?” Teodora snapped.
“Sometimes, Your Highness.”
“Don’t take that tone with me, Terris. Your Prince Novitny isn’t here to help you should I decide you need to disappear.“
Braeden missed the prince and his other comrades- it wasn’t right they’d been split up like this.
“Oh gods, don’t look so sad; I don’t plan to kill you, at least not right now.”
