8-10 Sentences for #WeWriWa - Grand Master's Pawn #4

Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Here, writers showcase their work with 8-10 sentences.
This week, I’ll continue from Grand Master’s Pawn. Violet has just been selected to be the pawn of one of the Grand Masters. She has hidden her talent of empathy since psychics are banned from becoming pawns.


Violet walked out the exit into a smaller chamber. One pawn was already in the room. She introduced herself as Lira Tong from the planet of Aman-el. Lira was a humanoid alien covered in soft brown fur, her ears were pointed, and her yellow eyes had a vertical slit like a cat’s pupil.
“I can’t believe I was chosen as a pawn,” Lira said, purring happily. “It’s wonderful!”
Violet returned her smile, sensing a kindred spirit in the Aman-ellan. “I feel the same, since I’ve always dreamed of exploring remote planets.”
“We’ll get our instructions from our Grand Masters soon,” Lira said. “I wonder where I’ll go for the first mission.”

  5. Great eight, filled with creative imagery. I also got a good sense of their excitement, but all I can think is, "I bet it will be seriously complicated and won't be as fun as you think." ;)

  6. Lira sounds so very sweet. I hope nothing bad hurts her. But Violet though... I both want her to be in trouble and not--I want a good story, after all.
