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.
A lot has happened since we last checked in with Kendryk. While Gwynneth and Arian Orland pressure him to take on Teodora while she’s in a weak position, he procrastinates with religious concerns. He’s learned from his pet excommunicated priest that his whole country has turned to the new form of worship. The only holdout is Julia Maxima-Kendryk tangled with her long ago, at the start of this whole thing. Now he has to fire her. He and Arian Orland barge into her study. We’ve met her secretary, Count Greylen, before. (creatively edited)
“You’re sure you want to do this alone?” Arian asked.
Kendryk nodded, then opened the study door without knocking.
Count Greylen jumped to his feet saying, “You can’t come in here.”
“Out,” Kendryk said, holding the door open.
Arian took one step inside, his hand on the hilt of his sword and Greylen scurried past him.
Kendryk let the door fall shut behind him and turned back to Julia. She stood, but stayed behind her desk.
“I’m sorry to be unpleasant,” Kendryk said.
Well, at least he’s polite. Aside from his somewhat threatening buddy.
