Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Writers in different genres showcase their stories with 8-10 sentences. Join the fun and read our snippets.
I am posting snippets from my new release, Gargoyle Hunt, Book 3 of Secret Supers.
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.
This week, I’m switching to a scene later in the book. After the gargoyles’ robbery hits the headline news, Toby arrives unexpectedly on a mission for his Farleon Elders. 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, this happens:

Toby was standing under the arched stone entrance holding a brown paper bag. He smiled and walked toward her, looking hunky despite the wary expression in his shadowed eyes.
Estelle longed to hug him; questions burst from her, “Toby, are you okay? What happened in London?”
“Hi babe, sorry I’m late.” He waved the paper bag, wafting the salty smell of greasy fries to her nostrils, “Picked up a steak pie and chips.” He glanced over her shoulder, straightened and stared.
Estelle turned to see what had caught his interest. In a short scarlet dress and matching red shoes with stiletto heels, Cynthia Mortimer sailed toward them. A mismatched pair of men accompanied her: a tall, distinguished-looking man with iron gray hair and a charcoal gray suit clasped her left elbow, and a sallow-complexioned man with slick black hair, a head shorter than her, walked at Cynthia’s right side.
