The wedding blasts continue in 8 sentences for #WeWriWa



Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Here, writers in different genres showcase their stories with 8-10 sentences. Join the fun and read our snippets.

Today, I’ll continue the horrid wedding scene from my WIP, Grand Master’s Mate, Book 3 in the trilogy. Violet and her Grand Master, Athanor, are at her friend Tessa’s wedding when the Red Queen, Morrigu, drops in, explosively. Am I channeling Jedi knights here? A lady in a pink dress popped in to help save the wedding.
Last Sundays’ snippet ended with:  Alarmed by the double threat, the Red Queen broke away. You can read the rest here:

Her red figure whirled and dissipated. Just before she vanished, Athanor threw his dagger at her. The blade clattered to the floor, its tip stained in blood. He had scored a hit.
Muting his power, Athanor switched to his disguise as a precaution. He sagged into a chair, bowed his head in his hands and groaned, “She escaped. By the horn of Dagda, where in the voidal galaxy will she hide?” His mind blurred in exhaustion from the tremendous outflow of his energy. Violet placed her hand on his bare neck and emitted her empathy to recharge his psi power.

Escaped again? I’ll have to switch to something different next time.

Books 1 & 2 of the Trilogy are published.

  1. "The wedding blasts continues" ... nothing like a little double entendre, eh?

  4. Great-she blows the place up and disappears. Fluid action as always.

  5. I like seeing his exhaustion in the aftermath of the battle. Very "humanizing."

    1. Even if he claims not to be entirely human.

    1. My stories often alternate action and quieter scenes.
