Welcome to another snippets. I hope you will enjoy this week’s selection which is but a part of the greater whole. The idea is to present the entire short story to you 8 – 10 sentences at a time.
This link will take you to the Weekend Writing Warriors home page where you can check out snippets from other writers.
We continue where we left off last time with Master Gallien’s disturbing news.
Four foundational precepts—four pillars—made up the basis of all the teachings found in The Pillars, teachings that ruled every H’Rhophyan priest and whoever held The Faith as dear. Just as the four pillars within the sanctuaries of every Temple supported the roof of the structure, the four pillars of The Pillars supported The Faith. And while the pillars of The Temple rested on solid rock, The Pillars reached deeper still, resting and finding their support in the character of Chalrusha Himself: The True God.
“One of the young priests noticed It missing after sunrise when he opened the Sanctuary.”
“That was less than an hour ago.”
“Then you understand the urgency of your summoning?” Demeas nodded his affirmation. “We need you to find The Pillars so that It may be restored to Its proper place.”
Demeas stood, “Of course, Master Gallien. I will leave immediately.”
Next week I’ll have the next portion for you.
