Weekend Writing Warriors – Restoration #29

Welcome to another snippet.


Over the next little while I will bring you the remainder of the short story,
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.

It appears I did not register my snippet from last week, even though I posted the segment on my blog. Perhaps, you would like to read last weeks portion first. Go here to read last weeks snippet.


The meeting Demeas has both waited for and dreaded has arrived.


Demeas’ keen eyes searched the trees around him, but the barrier hid the thief. The clearing was a corridor lined with snow covered spruce trees. Most of the maple and birch trees scattered among the spruce were bare while others still had leaves clinging on, as if refusing to acknowledge the coming change. Creating a dense wall, the trees made it impossible to see who was beyond.

“Leave and we can forget about this,” continued the voice.

“You have something that doesn’t belong to you. I will restore It to Its rightful place and bring you back with me.”

He had an idea where the voice came from and moved in that direction and dismounted.

“Stop there, Demeas!”


Join me next week for another snippet.

    Sounds like he’s got too close for the thief’s comfort. LOL Good snippet.

    So the confrontation is finally upon us. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

  3. Well, can’t say he wasn’t warned!

  4. Dang, what a place to stop. I’m thinking Demeas knows this person, so I’m anxious to see what happens when they finally meet.


  5. Uh oh, sounds like someone’s in trouble! Wonder how Demeas will react. Something tells me he won’t back down easy.

  6. Loved the description of the trees, which was just the right amount to set the scene. and apparently the person knows Demeas, which deepens the mystery so…great snippet!

  7. I thought the thief was in trouble but then they apparently know each other. I wonder if Demeas is going to let him go.
