A moving shadow - Snippet from Super Starrella for #WeWriWa #Superhero

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.
I’ve been showing you a glimpse into Estelle’s secret life as Super Starrella. Last week, Starrella’s winged mare, Rockette, was rescued by a large cat. You can read last week’s snippet here: http://auroraspringer.blogspot.com/2016/06/rockette-in-trouble-snippet-from-super.html

Starrella raced to her mare. The big cat turned to face her, bared its curved fangs and snarled. Halting cautiously, Starrella tossed her hair back over her shoulders and stared at the powerful black cat. Nearly as tall as the mare, its sleek black fur had the pale yellow splotches of a South American jaguar.
A faint sound called her attention to the dark side of the building.
A man stepped out of the darkness, all in black except for his eyes. In the dull black material of his close-fitting suit, he was almost invisible, like a moving shadow. Even so, she recognized his distinctive broad shoulders and muscular arms.
“Toby!” Starrella cried. “What the heck is going on?”

What indeed? So here you see another facet of the mysterious Toby.

I won’t continue much further, but hope to start giving you snippets from the sequel, Starrella Falls.

    1. Good observation. Although Starrella turns her costume to black when she flies at night.

  7. Ooh, I thought maybe Toby WAS the cat, but maybe the cat is to him what Rockette is to Starella?

  8. I think the cat is fascinating and can't wait to learn more. And I was nicely surprised that Toby is NOT the cat, so well done.
