Hi, I’m back from an accidental hiatus. I forgot to post one Sunday, the next Sunday – I wrote the post, saved it, but didn’t sign up, and last week was Easter, so I just threw my hands up and decided to wait. So, I’m back.
This week's 8-10 sentences are from my medieval fantasy romance – The Last Dragon
To catch you all back up – Prince Hawkyns was on a quest to slay a vicious dragon. He is injured.
A lass, Derry is out on her early morning walk, looking for firewood or wild fruit for breakfast. She spots a large lump in the meadow where there isn’t a boulder.
Advancing with caution, she chewed her bottom lip. What evil could this be? Too small to be a dragon. Unless it was a young one.
She paused and searched the sky for an immense flying animal. No need to irritate the mother and risk death or worse. A dragon’s fire burned flesh and killed bodies. But the touch of Ayrradex’s breath caused dark evilness to fill a person's soul and neither she nor the abbot could free them from the wickedness.
The abbot, Father Jacobus, prayed for their souls to be released from their perversion, but to no avail. Derry's attempt to heal the sickness was thwarted by her being chased from the village by an angry mob.
A wee bit more
Derry shuddered at the thought of those who lived in Baswich who were dead, yet not dead. She inched her way closer until she could distinguish the form. It was a man.
