seizeAnd the next eight from Seize.  I’ll be out of town this weekend, so I’ll probably respond to comments late Sunday or Monday.

I wasn’t eager to correct his erroneous assumption that I was David’s mother.  I wasn’t overly eager for anyone to know my real identity.  I knew my father held no diplomatic relations with David’s kingdom of Ula, which I had never heard of, and wasn’t willing to risk becoming a prisoner again, this time for ransom rather than whatever nefarious purpose the witch had in store.

The knight walked to his horse, which I noticed must be well trained as, though he hadn’t been tied down, he hadn’t strayed an inch from where his reins dangled, touching the leaf-covered dirt.  He pulled a bundle from his saddle bags and offered it to me.  When I eyed him warily, he knelt and offered it to David, who snatched it greedily.

He unwrapped the bundle like he was ripping into a gift, revealing two loaves of bread.  David handed one back to me and plopped on the ground at my feet.

Are you enjoying Seize?

  1. Lovely eight, as always. I’d say she has a right to be wary – strange men with loaves of bread are not to be trusted right off! 😛

  2. A very nice eight, I am intrigued…

  4. Ah HA! I had a feeling last week there was a lot more going on here than you were letting on to us…well done snippet…can’t wait to keep reading the story.

Oh, you so know you want to...
