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.
Since my WIP is still at a rough stage, I am still posting snippets from 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.
Last week (See http://auroraspringer.blogspot.com/2016/12/chill-snippet-from-gargoyle-hunt-for.html ), we learned Toby had a difficult day in London where he met Lord Winterbourne, head of the British Farleons. When Toby left the building, he discovered a short man was tailing him. So, this piece is in Toby’s POV.
Giving a mental shrug, he resolved to take the spy on a tedious walk through the busy city before shaking him off. Toby led his tail on a lengthy tour from Wessex House to the Thames and along the waterfront all the way to the Tower of London. After joining the tourists gawping at the dungeons and the crown jewels, he left the Tower in the middle of the afternoon. Marching from the river to the main streets, he dived into the dark entrance to the underground and jumped on the first train of the Circle Line. He got off at the next station, crossed the bridge to the platform on the opposite side and backtracked. Unluckily, his tail caught sight of him exiting the carriage. Stubborn guy!
Time to switch to a different tactic.
