Sunday Snippet March 13, 2016

Book One of The Academy of the Accord is safely in the hands of a brave beta reader, and Book Two is waiting in the wings for her, so I’m going to post from Book Three this month.

Picking up from last week: Caristen got his Journeyman’s robe, and now it’s Torlew’s turn.  Keep in mind, this is supposed to be a somber moment…

 

“Torlew.”

The blond stepped forward, his green eye sparkling, and as Vinadi reached for his robe Torlew leaned forward. “I’m not wearing anything underneath,” he whispered.

Vinadi jerked back and shook his head at the laughter in the young man’s eyes.  “You are no longer an apprentice,” he said, struggling not to laugh as he pulled the white robe away and let it fall to the floor.  He handed him the grey robe.  “You have proven yourself more than worthy of this,” he said quietly.

Torlew grew serious as he drew the robes over his head and let them settle around his slender body.  Vinadi tied the belt around him and Torlew embraced him.  “I love you, Vinadi.  We both do.  Thank you, for everything you have done for us and for everything you have put up with from us through the years.”

“I wouldn’t trade a minute of it,” Vinadi smiled, returning the embrace.  He stepped back to Marsden’s side as the other stepped up to congratulate the new Journeymen.

  1. Puts a new spin on the “finding yourself naked at school” dream…hee hee.

  2. I love inserting humor into a serious moment, and this was perfect. I also like the affection between them. Great story.

  3. Karen Michelle Nutt

    Wonderful show of emotion from serious to light humor, and deep affection. Wonderfully done.

  4. Ah-ha-ha-ha! Love it! That’s a wonderful demonstration of their relationship and the humor they’ve all shared. Lovely, fun snippet!

  5. A very nice moment for all the characters – great snippet!

  6. What a great range of emotion here.

  7. *Nearly spits out drink * Okay, why is he NOT wearing anything underneath? Great moment though, full of many emotions. Such tender words to Vinadi also; words I’m sure everyone wants to hear that they are appreciated for all they did.

  8. Wonderful job of showing their chemistry–and great affection. They have such easiness with each other. Nicely done!

    Now to wait on the word from the brave beta reader! Exciting…nerve-wracking. 🙂

  9. It’s good it all turned up so well in the end.

  10. Well that turned out different. I would of been freaked out having to be naked under my robe and to have to change into another one in front of people.

  11. I like the little sprinkle of humour. Great snippet!
