Sunday Snippet, February 28, 2021

.

I’m posting from my current writing WiP, Song and Shadow, a prequel to Song and Sword. It’s a rough draft and I still don’t have an actual outline for it so it’s going to be a fun ride.

Picking up from last week’s snippet.

“Only friendship, Your Highness. Only friendship.”

Pashevel rose and bowed deeply. “But I fear I have presumed too much upon your time already this evening, Your Highness, and perhaps overstepped my bounds. I wish you a pleasant evening.”

“Wait…”

But Pashevel had already turned away and Hierik lowered his head to hide his tears, sensing that he had just lost all hope of being a good monarch, had lost the one person who had offered him hope, who had treated him as a person, and as a prince.

Treated him with the respect due his rank.

Treated him…

Pashevel had not sat until told he could — he had waited for his response, not just assumed…

Hierik’s lips curled into a smile. People would treat him the way he let them treat him.
