Chill! Snippet from Gargoyle Hunt for #WeWriWa

Happy New Year!  
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 am posting snippets from my latest release, Gargoyle Hunt, Book 3 of Secret Supers.

Blurb
Danger is the last thing on Estelle’s mind when she visits the University of Oxenford for a summer course. But, mysterious thefts and shadowy figures spur her into action. With Toby five thousand miles away, Estelle and her winged horse must hunt for the culprits alone. Soon they are embroiled in a mixed bag of aliens and ancient magic. Toby’s unexpected arrival throws her into turmoil and spurs events into a climax. 

After Toby arrives, his first order of business is meeting the clade leader in London. When he returns in the evening, Estelle is eager to hear about his trip. But, they’re meeting is interrupted when the alluring Dr. Cynthia Mortimer marches up to Toby:
I’ll overlap by a couple of sentences for the benefit of those who skipped last week for the holiday celebrations. Cynthia has walked away on the arms of her escorts and Toby turns to Estelle. 

He turned to face her, “I have to talk to her.”
“What?” she screeched, clenching fists hot with flames.
“Chill! Winterbourne said she could help find the crooks. Not sure if I trust him.” Toby rubbed her arm, “Find somewhere private and I’ll tell you about my day.” He groaned, “Ain’t been easy so far.”
“Sure.” Estelle led him across the lawn and through the passage into the Garden Quad, “We can sit by the pond under the rowan trees.” Until Cynthia Mortimer captured his attention, she had intended to invite Toby up to her room.

    1. She has reason to be worried. There's something he hasn't told her yet.

  3. Hmmm, she's depriving herself, it would seem. But then, you said there are things she doesn't know yet....interesting snippet and you're handing her jealousy VERY well. Happy New Year!

    1. Thanks! Yes, Toby had promised to meet some alien girls and he has not had the time or courage to tell Estelle what happened.
      Happy New Year!
