This week's 8-10 sentences are from my medieval fantasy romance – The Last Dragon
Scene Set – Yes, the lump that turned out to be a man – lived.
The abbot stepped forward and smiled. “Ye've discovered him.”
Derry lowered her gaze. “Aye, Father. Only moments ago. How did ye know he was here?”
The corpulent wool merchant, Meliboeus Rith, barged his way through the crowd. “The night watchman saw him fall from the sky in the early morning light.”
“He thought he was an angel.” The blacksmith's son, Pariset, peeked out from behind his father. Frowning, the blacksmith pushed the boy away.
A wee bit more
“Is he?” The man who spoke first turned to face the abbot.
Father Jacobus knelt next to the stranger. The sunlight glistened off his tonsure. “I believe him to be mortal.”
“But he fell from the sky. Only birds and angels can fly.” Meliboeus swaggered towards the man and tapped him with his foot.
“And dragons.” Pariset scooted out of the way of his father's slap.
