Hot with Flames - Snippet from Gargoyle Hunt for #WeWriWa #Superheroes

I wish you all a wonderful holiday!  

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 my new release, Gargoyle Hunt, Book 3 of Secret Supers. Sorry, it’s not really cheerful holiday reading, although all will end happily.

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. 

After Toby arrives, his first order of business is meeting the clade leader in London. When he returns in the evening, Estelle is eager to hear about his trip. But, they’re meeting is interrupted when the alluring Dr. Cynthia Mortimer marches up to Toby:

The distinguished man tapped Cynthia’s arm, “Come along, my dear, we’ll be late for the performance.”
The shorter man inserted, “Yeah, you can’t miss the opening act. Songs are real swell.”
With a parting flick of her eyelashes, Cynthia accepted the arms of her escorts and walked away. Still enthralled, Toby rotated, his gaze following her. Cynthia’s slender legs looked impossibly long between her miniskirt and the stiletto heels. 
“Toby!” Estelle hissed.
He turned to face her, “I have to talk to her.”
“What?” she screeched, clenching fists hot with flames.

    1. Merry Christmas! Yes, the question is - why does he have to talk with Cynthia?

  2. Happy holidays, Aurora

    Oh dear, batten down the hatches, she's gonna blow!

    1. Enjoy your holiday!
      Toby is being unusually careless.

  4. Sounds like there's going to sparks flying. Happy Christmas!

  5. I wouldn't be happy either, if I was Estelle, but I'm betting Toby has a reason other than the obvious one LOL. Happy Holidays!

  6. Does Cynthia have some kind of power, or is she being used by someone who does? Hmm...

    Happy holidays, Aurora! :-)

  7. I think I detect a note of jealousy in that screech.
