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. The conversations between Duke de Havilland and Margaret continues in the battlements of Caer de Havilland:
It made sense. She always did. While I learned at my father’s knee how to be a ruler she learned her craft from hers. The question of my parent’s death remained. While it might have been an accident the list of those who would benefit from their deaths was too long to ignore. Trust was all I had left. But trust was earned, not given.
I looked Margaret in the eye, “What do you know of the Lady Andrea of House Kaiser?”
Looking forward to the answer? Whatever it might be, it certainly will be interesting. As always make sure to check out the rest of the blog chain for cool snippets from great authors.
