Welcome to another edition of the Weekend Writing Warriors blog chain. We continue with another snippet from my short story collection, Weirder and Wilder Tales, which is a mix of speculative fiction short stories from high fantasy to science fiction with a dash of horror thrown in for good measure. Most are flash fiction, around a thousand words, but three stories are a bit longer. Today’s snippet is from The Wolf and the Songbird, the last of the longer pieces of the collection. Our young maiden found what she was looking for, but dealing with him was more work than she thought:
“Dammit Jason, you’re heavy,” I said while dragging his semi conscious form back to the car.
“Sorr—burp! I think…” he gurgled.
“No, you are not getting sick on me, Jason. I swear I’ll drop your arse right here!”
My nose, cheeks, and ears ached from the cold. I spotted the Volvo by the side of the road. I popped the boot so that Jason could crawl in and remain unseen until I got him back to the village. He pulled a gym bag from a dark corner of the boot.
So there you have another snippet from my WiP. As always, feel free to check out the rest of the blog chain by following the link above.
