Welcome to another entry into the Weekend Writing Warriors blog chain. This snippet is taken from my WiP, Lessons of War. Three hundred years after the death of the last Emperor of the Third Dynasty, the Throne of Stars, the seat of the galactic empire sits empty. But the recent death of the Duke and Duchess de Havilland has altered the status quo. As the young Duke tries to sort out his new responsibilities, a face from the past offers to help:
“Walk with me,” I said as I walked past Margaret.
We reached the castle’s battlements. Memories of running past sentries, playing with the mouser kittens and stealing kisses in dark corners flooded my mind.
“I’m so sorry I missed the funeral,” she said.
“You were busy at university,” I said, eyes firmly to where the blue skies of Mercia met the Emerald Sea.
“That is no excuse.”
I turned to stare at her golden eyes, “Why did Cara, your father, call you back to Caer de Havilland?”
“Because you need me.”
Things seem to be getting interesting between these two. I hoped you enjoyed this brief look into my current WiP and make sure to click on the link above for more great snippets.
