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.


Demeas crosses into Ghendhar via a ferry and continues his search.


Demeas tied up his horse near the middle of the boat and moved to the bow as they departed. The vessel picked up speed as the boatman lowered the sail. The fabric filled and billowed as it caught the wind.

“With such a light load we is sure to make better time than usual.”

Demeas nodded his approval. A cold gust rising from the water took away his breath for a moment and he pulled his cloak around his shoulders to block the chill. He set his face forward and stayed on the bow for the duration of the trip watching the snowflakes dance around them like faeries.

They arrived at the Ghendhar port of Dalgin much earlier than expected. Demeas untied his horse and led her off the boat, gave the ferryman another silver coin as promised, and departed without a word.


Join me next time for another snippet.
