This week's 8-10 sentences are from my medieval fantasy romance – The Last Dragon
Scene set – Prince Hawkyns killed a dragon and was relaxing after the hunt. Something grabbed him.
Derry was out searching for wild fruit for breakfast, spotted a lump then discovered it wasn’t a dragon. It was a man.
She scurried over, tossed her basket behind her then dropped to her knees beside his crumpled body. His eyes were closed and his face slack. One arm lay thrust out at an odd angle and his right leg was tucked under his left. The glow of the sun’s light cast a golden sheen to his brow. Derry placed her palm on his chest. Although slight, she could feel it rise and fall with each breath.
Closing her eyes and drawing in a deep breath, she slid her hands along his arms and paused where injuries needed mending. With a strength she’d never experienced, the healing force flowed in waves through her and into his body.
Wee bit more
When she finished searching for wounds on his legs, Derry paused to restore her energy. His eyelids twitched then peeled open. She shifted her position so her head would shield his face from the glare of the morning sun.
“Uhh.” He raised his hand off the ground as if trying to touch her.
Derry pressed her palm on his shoulder. “Stay still.”
His eyes, the colour of the ocean, met her gaze then his eyelids dropped and his body relaxed.
“No! Don’t be…”
