Another weekend, another snippet for the Weekend Writing Warriors. Today I present another snippet from my current work in progress, Lessons of War. When last me saw young Duke deHavilland he mingled among his guests who came to pay their respects to his late parents. But something or should I say, someone has caught his eye:
Andrea, Lady Elector of House Major Kaiser, sat on the window sill at the far side of the hall. A river of blond hair cascaded down to her hips. Her eyes matched the deep dark blue emerald that hung around her slender neck. Father’s words came to mind.
To court her is to court war.
Yet she held the promise, however vague, of escape from the official drudgery of the moment. I moved in her direction. A wall of sculpted sinew and quiet contained menace stopped me in my tracks.
And that is my snipped for the day. I hope you enjoyed this little window into my current project. Make sure to visit all the blogs on the chain by clicking the link above.
