A Glimmer of white-edged feathers - Snippet from Gargoyle Hunt for #WeWriWa #Superheroes

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 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. 

Toby is in London where he has been followed. He walked into an ambush. See last week’s snippet –

The final sentence was: Toby agreed, “Time to scarper, cat.”

He rubbed the back of his neck where the cudgel had hit. He could feel a tender lump; the headache was only going to worsen.  
Want to ride?” the cat stretched his legs, appearing as a ghostly shape.
Yep, fastest way out! But you look like a ghost with the invisibility setting. Shoot up high.
Unfurling his wings in a glimmer of white-edged feathers, Growler purred, “Flying out is better than being caught red-handed.”  
Toby searched in the littered alley and retrieved his best jacket. He grunted, “No need to leave evidence lying around.” Stuffing the jacket under his invisible nanoshirt, he mounted the big jaguar.

    1. Thanks. Growler doesn't always understand the subtleties of human society, but he understands about hunting.

  10. Great snippet, Aurora. I still love that word scarper (from last week). I think they did indeed scarper.
