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.

  1. Sounds like the prince gleaned some insight from the discussion anyway. Great snippet!

  2. Great snippet with revealing that he gets it!
