Sunday Snippet February 1, 2015

This is an excerpt from my current project.  This is a very rough first draft and may or may not have been creatively edited to fit the 10 sentence limit.

This continues from last week but is from Arrek’s POV.

 

“Now what?” indeed.  

A thousand answers swirled through Arrek’s mind as he studied the wizard in front of him. Even without having heard his name he would have known who he was: there was no mistaking the eyes – one blue and one aqua – that had haunted him for the past thirteen years. 

Then they had been filled with a combination of fear and trust, and now there was hope, uncertainty, and a tinge of despair and hurt, and as before he wanted to soothe him, to protect him and assure him that everything would be all right. 

They were older now, though — wrapping his arms around him and holding him while he did it would be frowned upon. 

“Now what?” indeed.  

A trace of a smile crossed his lips.  “Whatever you would like.  I am completely at your disposal.  And don’t take Traeasyun’s words personally,” he added cheerfully.  “She treats everyone like that.”

 

(The prologue is available on Wattpad if you’d like some background information.)
