This week's 8-10 sentences are from my medieval fantasy romance – The Last Dragon
Scene set – We are switching over to Prince Hawkyns. He was rescued and taken into town. He is healing. He slips off into a dream.
His wife knelt next to where he lay on the grass. A coy smile on her lips. Her long black tresses framing her face and neck. She unfurled her thin fingers, grasped his hand and rested it on her belly. “I am with child. Ye have done yer duty. When I bear this son, the future of the kingdom is secure.”
“The alchemist, Malum has foreseen that I will bear the future king of Penrythe. Soon ye shall sit on yer throne with me by yer side and we will rule the kingdom.”
A wee bit more
He laughed. “Nay. Not too soon. My father is as robust as the day he took the throne.”
“But there are dangers. Dragons. Spells. Evil curses. Ye must be ready to be king.”
She leaned closer, brushing her lips across his cheek. “Ye do wish to be king? To be the noble and wise leader for our son.” She lowered the shoulders of her gown.
