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 want to show you a different scene today from my new release Grand Master’s Mate. If you want to read what happened on the Moon Illoris, you can read a longer excerpt here: http://auroraspringer.blogspot.com/2015/11/srf-brigade-showcase-grand-masters-mate.html
The new scene is on the ocean planet of AguaSalva, where humans live on islands and most lifeforms inhabit the seas. Ravaleen is a human Grand Master and Bollerol has five flexible limbs.
A delicate sail of pale yellow swung into view, flying above an almond colored boat with brown stripes. When it drew closer, Violet saw the boat resembled a giant cockle shell. The thin central membrane of the sail protruded from the fleshy base of the marine mollusk. The huge half shells were taller than a man and the sail towered three times higher.
The shell boat steered into the pavilion and halted near Violet. The sail membrane folded down and the shell halves rocked in the gentle waves.
“Board the Callama,” Ravaleen said, “Bollerol will accompany you as a translator.”
Thoughts wafted into Violet’s mind. “Wish, wash, ride on me; three limbs, four limbs twice, and Bollerol five limbs.” The slow rhythms of Callama’s voice merged into the background swell of the sea. No wonder the translator did not recognize the shell animal’s speech.
To celebrate completion of the Trilogy, Grand Master’s Pawn is only 99c this month
