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.
When we last left Janna, she had lost herself in the woods, avoiding all human contact. But Braeden happens to be marauding in the area, and stumbles upon her. Janna is starving and scared, but he persuades her to come back to his camp with him and arranges transport with Kazmir, his battle charger.
With one swift movement, he picked her up and set her in the saddle. She squeaked and held on for dear life. The horse looked at her sideways, but held still. It looked like it was a mile down to the ground.
The blue eyes twinkled up at her again. “No need to be afraid of Kazmir. He only pretends to be fierce. He’s gentle as a lamb and loves ladies.”
Janna doubted she qualified as a lady at this point, but was too frightened to protest. Still, it was a nice change to be afraid of a horse instead of its rider.
