This week's 8-10 sentences are from my medieval fantasy romance – The Last Dragon
Scene set – Derry returns from finding the stranger to the small cottage where she lives with a woman known only as the Ancient. Derry has powers to heal. The Ancient is complaining about the aches in her hand.
Derry held the wrinkled and veined hand and closed her eyes. With her free hand, she stroked the palm and between the fingers and over the back. Her fingers tingled as they pulled the aches of age from the woman's flesh.
While she worked the other hand, the woman spoke, “What was the man like? Where did he come from? Ye did not bring him here?”
“He fell from the sky.”
“Like a fallen angel?”
“Father Jacobus said he is mortal. He felt to be of flesh and bone. His muscles were hard.” Derry's heart raced. She wrinkled her forehead.
A wee bit more
“What troubles ye?”
“When I speak of the man, or think of him, my heart pounds as if I ran across the meadow. I do not understand.” Derry released the aged hand and lay back on the grass. Filtered sunlight streamed through the branches of the large oak above her.
“Someday ye will understand.” A tiny grin crossed the woman’s lips.
