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.
Braeden has now rejoined Teodora as she gets ready to take her capital back. She’s received help from her cousin, the Queen of Maladena in the form of one of her best generals- Demario Barela- and his army. Braeden is showing the newcomer the ropes while he ogles Teodora. Slightly edited to make sense in 10.
“Still, it pleases me that our beautiful empress is so interested in what we do,” Barela said, casting an admiring glance at Teodora, lightly armored and riding nearby on a white palfrey.
“That’s because you don’t know her,” Braeden said.
Barela laughed, then said, “Ah, you don’t like her. I understand. She is a challenging woman. Not always pleasant to be around. But, I like challenging women, and very few are as lovely as she.”
He looked her way again, long enough to make Teodora look back. She gave him that intense stare she had, but he didn’t flinch and instead smiled that broad, charming smile of his that engulfed his whole face.
Braeden wondered if the man knew what he was doing.
