Weekend Writing Warriors – Restoration #30

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.

There was a problem with the scheduler last week which was the reason
this snippet was not ready for viewing on Sunday. By the time I realised
what had happened, it was too late to post.

This link will take you to the Weekend Writing Warriors home page where you can check out snippets from other writers.

Demeas finally meets who he is looking for.


“You have me at a disadvantage,” said Demeas.

“How does it feel?”

“If you intend to intimidate me, it won’t work.”

“I didn’t think it would,” said the thief as he moved out into the open.

Demeas was speechless. Discouragement rose as he watched the man move into the clearing. This person had been one of his students and his disappointment now turned to himself.

Where did I go wrong?

“Why did you steal The Pillars, Faldron?”


Join me next week for another snippet.

  1. Sad, that he’s blaming himself, even though his former student is the thief. Pretty typical of decent people, though.

  2. Poor Demeas, a feeling of failure on top of everything else. I get why he feels that way though. He’ll have to get over any remaining affection for Faldron to fix things, I’m anxious to see how he does that.

    Glad you’re back, too! Technology doesn’t always live up to its promises.

    Not just any student, I surmise, but someone whom Demeas felt a connection to.

  4. Oh man, talk about a twist! The dialogue between them is stellar, and I want to know why the student turned on the master!
