I feel like it’s been too long since I’ve shared any part of my current project, Dragons’ Bane. A lot has happened already this year and a lot has changed. My novel isn’t even close to what it was a year ago (which is hopefully a good thing). So I thought I’d share with you a little excerpt from the book. Enjoy! 🙂
“This is supposed to be a secret mission, Blaze dear.”
“I know that.” He shoved aside a branch with a scowl. “What makes you think I don’t?”
Sari followed him calmly. “Well, the fact that you’re making quite a bit of noise would seem to point to it.”
He shoved another branch aside, albeit quieter this time, giving her a pointed look as he let it go. “There. Happy now?”
She smiled warmly. Always so warmly, as if nothing could ever change it. “Yes, dear. Though if you could add a smile to your handsome face it would make me even happier.”
“Yeah. Not going to happen.”
He was about to reply when something stopped him. The air felt…different, and a quick glance back at Sari confirmed that she felt the same. He was about to make a comment when an unmistakable growl cut through the silence.
“Oh, look at that. It seems our little friend is even grumpier than you are. Who knew that was possible?” Sari flashed him a cheery, almost cheeky smile–if cheeky was even possible for Sari–and headed in the direction of the noise.
I love the exchanges between these two. 😛 They’re so fun. I hope you enjoyed the excerpt! Let me know what you think of it, and if you’d like to read more. 😉
