It’s time for Weekend Writing Warriors! Every Sunday, a bunch of writers post 8-10-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.
I was going to continue with Janna’s adventures from last week, but what happens to her and Anton is really depressing and I’m feeling kind of down these days. I think it’s the extremely hot weather and non-stop allergies. So I thought it would be a lot more fun to join Braeden for another one of Empress Teodora’s tantrums. She’s just found out that Kendryk rescued Landrus, and she’s not taking it very well. Edited to fit.
“Get away from me, all of you!” Teodora shouted. “I can’t stand the sight of you.” She suddenly spurred her horse into the forest.
“Best keep an eye on her,” Count Solteszy told Braeden. “We don’t want to lose her in the woods, though you should keep your distance, just in case.”
Braeden followed Teodora until he watched her dismount and demolish several small trees and bushes with her sword. She only stopped when it got stuck in the bark of a large oak tree, then she yanked on the hilt until she slumped against the tree in exhaustion. When it seemed safe, Braeden rode up and pulled it out, then helped her back on her horse. She was silent all the way back to the road.
Kendryk is in sooo much trouble!
