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.)

  1. I look forward to see how their reunion plays out. Love his inner thoughts.

  2. Finally! They meet each other again. Question is now, does he remember Arrek? I’ve been waiting for this moment, I can’t wait to see how it plays out.

  3. Gem

    There is such anticipation in this snippet…drawing it from him and me at the same time. Great writing.

  4. Woot! We have mutual remembrance and caring! :D

    You did record my dibs on beta, right, Paula?

    • Sarah, Sarah, Sarah! Am I crazy enough to forget an offer for a beta reader? Good beta readers are worth their weight in chocolate! Once the third book is finished and the trilogy had been pounded into some semblance of readability I’ll be hitting you up for it.

  5. Nice touch with the different-colored eyes. That image really helps sell the air of mystery.

    Yes! It’s the boy he knew as a kid. Nice snippet, P. T. :D

    He found the one who helped him! Super. Maybe this man will have answers for him.

  8. “I am completely at your disposal.”

    Dangerous line, or the exact opposite. ;) Nice snippet, PT!

  9. Hum, nice encounter indeed. I wonder what is going to happen next.
