Weekend Writing Warriors: Snippet 131- Braeden

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.

On with more Fall of the Titan, which is mere days away from release. I’ve set the release date for May 10, but if I have it ready sooner, I’ll release it then. A few weeks ago, Braeden’s protege and Devyn’s friend Trisa showed up badly wounded, though she’s slowly recovering now.

Braeden spent a fair amount of time at Trisa’s bedside, but no one matched Devyn for devotion. He refused to leave for any reason, insisting that the servants bring all his meals to him and a cot for him to sleep on. The doctor gave up trying to shoo him away, instead giving him a few small tasks to keep him occupied. More than once, Braeden walked in on the young prince sweeping the floor or bathing Trisa’s forehead.

“She can’t rest with you staring at her all the time,” the doctor said, shaking his head, though Braeden detected an amused gleam in his eyes.

“‘S true,” Trisa murmured, her eyes closed, though a smile played at the corner of her mouth. She was awake at least occasionally, though the doctor kept forcing a potion between her lips. It seemed to keep her drowsy.

    So wonderful for Trisa to have two men so concerned for her. All the best with your upcoming release! 🙂

  2. Wow, you are really cranking out these stories! I think Braeden is my favorite character… He’s a tortured hero. 🙂 Congrats on the upcoming release!

    • Christina says:

      I am SO anxious to get this series done now. Though it’ll take a long book after this one to wrap it all up, I think. I love Braeden so much, maybe because his personality is somewhat based on my husband’s.

  3. Ed Hoornaert says:

    His devotion — or should I say ‘love’? — is admirable indeed.

  4. Kim Magennis says:

    Good luck with your release, Christina.

    Such a touching scene of sweet devotion. Thank you!

  5. It’s rare to find devotion such as what the young man displays. Beautiful!

  6. A nice scene, all that devotion! Enjoyed the snippet and best wishes on the release!

  7. Karen Michelle Nutt says:

    Love how devoted he is to Trisa. Lucky girl, I’m thinking. 🙂

  8. He is certainly devoted and she seems to appreciate it.

  9. nancygideon says:

    Release Day approaches! How exciting (and stress-filled)! You’ll handle it as well as you did this wonderfully tender scene, Christina.

  11. Lovely, tender scene. Good luck with your release.

  12. Andrea R Huelsenbeck says:

    Devyn is nothing if not persistent.

  13. Cara Bristol says:

    So devoted he is! She’s a lucky girl?

  14. elainecsc2013 says:

    It seems she has two men concerned for her, although in different ways.

  15. Devyn is such a lover!

  16. But I’m sure she’s reassured by his presence.

  17. A great exchange, but I’m all about… Braeden!!! Can I just bundle him up somewhere safe so he doesn’t get hurt? Pretty please!

  18. aldreaalien says:

    Aww. I love these sorts of scenes.

    Good luck with the new release. Loving the cover.

  19. Diane Burton says:

    How touching. Devyn is so devoted. Best wishes with your new release.

  20. That is some devotion, for sure! I would think it’d be difficult to rest with his constant fussing, though.
