Snippet from #SciFi Story Grand Master's Mate for #WeWriWa

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.

Today, I’ll start a new snippet from Grand Master’s Mate. Violet and Athanor are visiting their friend, the Black Dragon, Ythris. Note 1, the Brululians resemble man-sized lobsters. Note 2, I use italics for telepathic exchanges.

A small brown dragon popped into view, flying in midair towards Ythris. “Attack on Illoris!” it croaked. 
Silence fell within the great hall.
Acting fast, Ythris ordered, “Seltos, peep at the portal station.” The copper dragon vanished.
“My children!” Gullish wailed, clutching at the nearest little Brululians.
“We’ll get them,” Athanor grated, leaving Violet momentarily uncertain whether he meant the attackers or the Brululians on the moon. “Both,” he sent, grabbing her arm.
The rock walled hall disappeared as they spun into the void.
You retrieve the Brululians and I’ll hold off the attackers,” Athanor’s command winged to Violet.
