Sunday Snippet, January 23, 2022

.

Picking up from last week’s post from a fantasy WiP tentatively titled Wild Worker. Ciana’s father is making a delivery and she is tending the jewelry shop.

The old woman’s circuit of the shop brought her to where Ciana waited behind the counter and her sharp eyes fell on the sketches. “Now these… Yes. These are the kinds of things I’m looking for.” Gnarled fingers moved the pages around as she nodded approvingly. She looked up and met Ciana’s gaze for the first time. “Your grandfather taught you to make jewelry?”

She nodded. “Yes, but my father was never happy about it, and since he died I’ve not been permitted to work on designs.”

“So you make sketches when he’s not around?”

Ciana nodded and the old woman pulled a leather pouch out from the folds in her skirt. “You grandfather taught you lapidary skills as well?”

“Yes, and how to work with metals, even some small forge work.”
