This week's 8-10 sentences are from my medieval fantasy romance – The Last Dragon
Scene Set – Continuing Hawkyns battle with the dragon.
The enormous beast plodded about, sniffing, searching for his prey. Frustration boiled, and the dragon released his fiery breath with an air-ripping howl. Dark red and orange flames spewed forth engulfing the trees and bushes in its path.
Experience having taught him a dragon is weakest the few moments after exhaling fire, Hawkyns seized the instant to attack. Sword raised, he rushed out. As he neared the right flank, he swung, but the dragon had not been caught unaware. It lifted its wing, snagged Hawkyns' feet, and tossed him across the meadow.
A blast of air ejected from his lungs as he hit the ground a short distance from the bank of the river. The sword bounced out of his grasp. Pain gripped him as he tried to force air back into his chest.
A bit more
Keeping his gaze on the dragon, he groped for his weapon. His fingers felt no metal.
