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.
When we last saw Braeden, he had decided to arrest Daciana Tomescu, marauder and personal friend to Empress Teodora. He’s taken her straight to Atlona, the empress’s capital, and is hoping to get rid of his prisoner without upsetting the empress. He really can be clueless sometimes!.
It would take time to find Prince Novitny’s black banners in the sea of tents covering the parade ground so Braeden brought his party to a halt. “Find the prince and tell him we’ve got an interesting prisoner, so I’ll want his help handling the empress,” he said to Franca.
Before she could go, a column of twelve women in the gold armor and red velvet of the Imperial Guard approached them. It seemed that word of Tomescu’s capture had traveled faster than he had. Braeden hoped they were here to take her off his hands.
“Braeden Terris?” a tall, very red-faced woman at the head of the column asked.
When Braeden nodded, she said, “You are under arrest by order of her Imperial Highness, and will proceed with us to Arnfels Castle.”
It was to be the dungeon, then.
I’m not sure if I’ll participate in WeWriWa next week. I’ll be spending the long weekend with family and probably won’t have time. I will miss all of you! I always look forward to Sundays and seeing what amazing things you’ve come up with. Happy Thanksgiving!
