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.
Gwynneth is still stuck in her besieged castle, but she’s been using her time productively. Father Edric Landrus has finally finished translating the Holy Scrolls and Gwynneth decides she should read them and see what the fuss is all about. Reading them changes her mind about everything, so she has to swallow her pride and apologize to Edric for doubting him and his work.
“I don’t understand what happened, but I’m different now. I learned so many new things as I read the Scrolls, I’m sure I don’t even comprehend them all. It changed me somehow, I’m certain of it,” Gwynneth ended with a whisper.
“I’m so pleased, Your Grace. I’ve long prayed for this moment.”
“Thank you,” Gwynneth had to pause and stop the quiver in her voice. It was bad enough she had to admit she’d been wrong about this. To weep in front of Edric, kind as he was, would have been the worst. “I hope it’s all right that I still have a lot of questions. And many doubts, I’m afraid.”
