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.
King Arryk has finally rallied all of Kendryk’s allies and is ready to attack the forces besieging Princess Gwynneth in her castle. Anton is there with Arian Orland’s army, and just caught a lucky break. He’s been working with horse’s and it turns out Orland’s new page doesn’t know how to handle them. She doesn’t know much of anything in fact, so Anton is explaining to her that one of a page’s duties is keeping Orland’s pistols loaded.
She gulped. “Do I have to bring them to him during the battle?”
Anton stared at her. “That’s what pages are for.”
“But I’ll be scared.”
“I expect so. Most everyone will be scared, except for me.”
“You’ve been in a lot of battles?” she asked as Anton picked out a sword, a battle axe, two sabers, an arquebus and two pistols.
“A few,” he said. “Though this is the biggest so far.”
