This week's 8-10 sentences are from my medieval fantasy romance – The Last Dragon
Scene set – Prince Hawkyns, his angel (Derry) and Pariset have gotten the pregnant woman to the monastery. Remember he doesn’t know Derry’s name and thinks of her as his angel.
His angel spoke soothing words and rubbed the woman’s belly and back, comforting her. Hawkyns shifted his feet and looked about. His being there was not proper. Another woman should be attending such matters. He was a man. A knight. The son of a king. He rubbed his face. Baswich was a strange place. It was filled with hate when it should be love.
A wee bit more
A woman with child should not need protection. The advances of the people at the wool merchant’s house were disturbing. He longed for his sword, his horse and a solitary ride beside a rushing stream.
The woman screamed. His angel grabbed his arm, pulling him closer. “She needs ye now.”
He tossed his hands, palms upwards. “I know not what to do.”
“Hold her hand. This is not her firstborn, but I fear the child may be wrong.” She lifted the blanket and focused on the woman.
Wrong? Hawkyns did not ask the question waiting on the edge of his tongue. Instead, he said, “Hawkyns.”
“Derry.” She smiled. “This is Mirth. And with God’s blessing, we will soon have a new life to name.”
