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.
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.
By popular demand, I’m continuing from a scene with a gargoyle in action.
Estelle is walking to St. Swithin’s College after dark with Diane and Julian when they hear a scream. Another student, Betty, sees what she calls a ghoul climbing the church wall.
You can read last week’s snippet here:
Estelle makes an excuse and runs off to switch to Starrella in the final line: Sprinting past the church, she dived into a dark archway.
“Rockette!” she rolled the nanomask over her head and slid her fingers along the label of her costume, adjusting the nanofabric to the almost invisible setting. Her motion destroying the reflective illusion of invisibility, the hazy outline of Starrella appeared as she ran toward her friends. The creature still clung on top of the wall like an ugly ornament. Diane and Julian huddled together, while the professor hovered over Betty. Where was Rockette? She couldn’t climb a vertical wall after that weird creature; she would have to ride on the winged mare.
“I’m here. Standing right next to you,” Rockette whinnied in her mind. “Shucks, these invisible costumes are super great; I can’t even see myself.” Feathers glimmered as she flapped her wing tips.
The book is on pre-order for release on December, 6th.

I love Rockette's "words". Problematic and yet humorous that even the superheroes can't see themselves.ReplyDelete

That invisibility costumes seems like fun, I wonder how it feels not to see yourself. I also always wonder why the person wearing the thing would be invisible but still able to see through it. Very strange.ReplyDelete
Good questions! Write a story about it.Delete
Quite entertaining world-building and character-building, Aurora. Rockette is outstanding!ReplyDelete
She is cute!Delete
