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.
Elektra is married! Brynhild Mattila coerced her into marrying her son Jozef, but the marriage has turned out well, maybe because Jozef is nothing like his mother. Here they share a tender moment.
“I hope you know you can trust me by now,” Jozef said, looking into her eyes as his finger traced the outline of her face.
Elektra shivered happily. She’d never had an inkling of how nice a man could make her feel. After years of loneliness and worry that no one would ever love her, she thanked the gods every day for giving her Jozef. Naturally affectionate, he seemed to enjoy having someone to cuddle as much as Elektra liked being cuddled.
Was it love? She wasn’t entirely sure, but perhaps that explained the delicious warmth she felt whenever she looked at her husband, and the way her toes curled when he kissed her.
