This passage comes later in the story, although it records part of a conversation which occurred before.

~~oOo~~

“Demeas,” said Gallien, the Elder of Temple Khalmara, walking toward Demeas. “Glad you could make it here so quickly.”
“I came as soon as you asked for me. The message seemed urgent.”
“It is. Our copy of The Pillars has been stolen.”
“What!”
Demeas squeezed the pommel of his dagger, turning his knuckles white.

  1. Great dialogue! The short sentences add to the feeling of urgency.

    This: “Demeas squeezed the pommel of his dagger, turning his knuckles white.” Is powerful.

    I want to read more.

    Well done!

  2. Very nice excerpt. And I love the last line. πŸ˜€ Great stuff.

  3. Demeas reaction adds to the tension. Well worded. Good snippet!

  4. Uh oh, you certainly convey the direness of this news to the Reader with your description. Terrific snippet, eager to read more!

  5. The last line is good.

  6. Kate Warren says:

    I take it “The Pillars” is quite important. Interesting watching this develop.
