Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Here, writers showcase their stories with 8-10 sentences. Join the fun and read our snippets.
Last weekend, I forgot to attach my link, but some folks found me anyway.
So today, I’ll share a snippet from my WIP, Grand Master’s Mate, Book 3 in the trilogy. Excerpted & punctuated to fit.
Violet and her Grand Master, Athanor, are at the wedding of one of her best friends, Tessa. Athanor anticipates trouble since the bridegroom, Phineas, has just won an award for inventing an instrument to measure psychic energy. The Council of Grand Masters is likely to ban such a device, but Athanor thinks it could be useful.
The Director of the Center for Life Science opened the ceremony. His slow, sonorous voice tended to send his listeners to sleep and today was no exception.
Violet kept her senses tuned to Athanor, fearing he would fall asleep and inadvertently expose everyone to his raw power when he woke. His mind hazed and she sent him a mental pinch.
Suppressing a yawn, he sent unconvincingly, “I’m awake.” His thoughts sharpened and he griped, “Next time, remind me not to accept an invitation to a wedding.”
“You weren’t invited,” she snickered mentally and squeezed his hand.
The mediator offered a blessing and Phineas slid the ring over Tessa’s slender finger. Violet’s eyes misted, anticipating their happiness.
Boom; a red explosion shattered the glass panes in the curved wall of the atrium.
The first two books in the Grand Master's Trilogy are published.
