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 (and may be a touch over the limit, but I’m hoping to move on to something else next week.)
“But?” Arrek prompted.
“I’m sure you don’t want to listen to me babble about something that happened over a decade ago.”
“That sounds like Berrebren talking.”
“It probably is but he’s probably right,” Ta’elsin replied, shrugging as he glanced at the warrior. “What do you think of Berrebren?”
“I think he is cold, condescending, and has an over inflated sense of his own importance.” He smiled. “My grandfather would have said that if you could buy him for what he’s worth and sell him for what he thinks he’s worth you’d have made your fortune and would never have to work another day in your life.”
Ta’elsin choked back a guilty laugh and Arrek smiled. “How close am I?”
“I… think I should probably not agree with you.”
“At least not out loud?”
Ta’elsin stared at him for a moment and burst into laughter. “Yes. At least not out loud.”
(The prologue is available on Wattpad if you’d like some background information.)
