It’s time for Weekend Writing Warriors! Every Sunday, a bunch of writers post 8-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.
This week, we’re back with Braeden, who’s helped restore order in the city of Kaleva and is now patrolling the countryside, looking for any remaining rebels. He just finished searching a town in which the citizenry were uncommonly friendly and cooperative only to hear a bit later that the town has been attacked and burned by bandits of some sort.. Braeden and his soldiers are too late to save the town, but they catch some of the marauders.
Captain Torresia joined them, a body draped over his saddle. “You have terrible luck,” he said, dumping it onto the ground in front of Braeden. “Seems we’ve caught the Empress’s pet.”
“Are you sure?” The girl laying on the ground looked rather peaceful, with black curls spread out around a sweet, pale face.
“Just wait until she opens her eyes.”
“I doubt she will- she looks dead.”
“It’d take more than a wallop with my hammer to finish off this bitch. They say she’s part wolf and can’t be killed.”
There might be another snippet or two from this chapter, since Braeden is about to have a serious problem.
