seizeSorry I didn’t participate last week.  My parents were visiting, which is a computer black hole.  I think I lost four days last week to them, between cleaning and them actually being there…  Anyway, continuing from two weeks ago…

Sir Lionel leapt forward to catch the woman before she keeled forward, butt end of the loaf she’d been eating still in hand.  He was shocked when he grabbed hold of her upper arms to keep her from falling that all he felt was bone.  It felt like there wasn’t an once of muscle or fat on the poor woman.

“Told you she was tired,” the boy chimed in between swallows, gummed up wads of bread scrambling his words.

“Clearly,” he said in turn.  What had these two been through?


Lifting the sleeping Amara onto the horse’s saddle felt no more difficult to Sir Lionel than lifting the saddle itself.  The overeager David was as much a challenge as his mother.

    I like Sir Lionel and David sound like a little imp. 🙂

  2. P.T. Wyant says:

    I love David’s resilience. Nice snippet. (I missed this story — I’m glad you’re back.)

  3. Millie Burns says:

    Sir Lionel is fantastic. And David is adorable. It seems the two are safe for now…but I wonder what will befall them as a trio. Nice to see you back.

  4. “What had these two been through?” That’s what I want to know. Enjoyed your excerpt.

  5. I very much like sir Lionel and can’t wait to see more of the story unfold. Great snippet!

  6. Sir Lionel appears to be a true knight.

  7. Gemma Parkes says:

    Poor things, I expect their misfortunes will come to light. Great snippet.

  8. There is almost an innocence in Sir Lionel the way he can’t understand what these two have been through. Shows a nice sensitivity.

  9. She must have been very tired or she must be trusting him. I could feel her nerves break down.

  10. FCEtier says:

    If readers find out what those two had been through, you’ve got a great story.
    If we never find out exactly what they had been through…well…you’ve got an even better story.

Oh, you so know you want to...
