"Need a paw?" Snippet from Gargoyle Hunt for #WeWriWa #Fantasy

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 still 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 – http://auroraspringer.blogspot.com/2017/01/four-down-snippet-from-gargoyle-hunt.html
Final sentence last week: A hazy streak shot past; a man screamed.

Need a paw?” Growler snarled. The ghostly shape of the jaguar crouched on top of his victim. Blood dripping from his bare arm, the final thug crawled toward the safety of the main street.      
Thanks, pal.” Pausing to tug his nanomask over his head, Toby dashed after the escaping man. Hoisting the man above his head, Toby glared into his panicked eyes and grated, “Who sent you? You’re dead meat if you don’t answer.”
The man gasped, “Snake Eye. He’ll slay you!” The next second, his eyes rolled up and his breath fled.

  1. At least he could answer before dying. Snake eyes doesn't seem to be the kid of guy to be toyed with. It's good that Toby had some back up.

  6. Very intense, Aurora. Is he dead? How did he die? Glad Growler made an appearance.

  13. I don't like the sound of Snake Eye. But I'm willing to bet he's going to have more trouble than he thought trying to dispatch Toby.
