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.
Here comes trouble! While he’s out fortifying Terragand’s borders in case Teodora strikes, Kendryk runs into a large cavalry force. He guesses correctly that it’s led by Arian Orland, who has been conducting unauthorized raids on Teodora’s allies in Kendryk’s name..
Count Orland dismounted, swept his helmet off and went down in the mud on one knee. “Your Grace, a most unexpected honor.”
Taken aback, Kendryk dismounted. “Please rise. There’s no need to stand on ceremony. You haven’t done so until now.”
Orland stood, then threw back his head and laughed, showing a mouth full of white teeth. Black hair fell to his shoulders, framing a singularly handsome face. He stood a good half head taller than Kendryk, who had the fleeting notion that maybe this was the ruler Father Landrus was always going on about. He looked the part.
Aw, poor insecure and slightly short Kendryk! Will this new ally be more trouble than he’s worth? Probably!
