It’s a second chance to share a small snippet of my current writing. Most weeks, I tie them back to my WIPpet Wednesday post, so reading both can give a deeper peek…
Niaan is fleeing through the trees, knowing she’s not safe from the risk a fall, and afraid to stop and seek shelter, because she knows she’s being pursued…
Did He Know?
Yes. Hunters. To punish her for the fangs she’d sunk into Mother’s throat –
“Nonono!” She whisper-shouted into the dark – when? When had it grown dark, with Kaivelt’s firestars painting her skies, his Everdeep?
Had he seen her, when she had lain with another? Did he know what she had done?
What did Niaan do?
Will the Hunters find her?
Does Kaivelt know what she did?
What’s this about fangs and her mother’s throat?
Are her perceptions to be trusted?
There will be more next week – note, I don’t make any promises about answering any of these questions, only to come back with more of the story. I know – writers can be mean, but we have our reasons!
If you need a recap of what I’ve shared so far, here it is:
Also, I know I left The IDIC Romance with T’Pol’s sick not mucking up Trip’s boots. The thing is, T’Pol’s a little indisposed right now, and indisposed Vulcans deserve privacy. So I’m going to give her some time to see if she can get her digestive tract back under her own control…
Don’t worry (worry isn’t logical) – she never stays away for too long….but, until then, I offer an amusing intermission that has nothing at all to do with today’s eight. Maybe don’t watch if a bit of naughtiness isn’t your thing, or the circumstances would make tongue-in-cheek raciness inappropriate…I’ll do the closing duties, to give you time to decide.
And now, as promised…a little Vulcan spiciness,
with a side of sauciness, and a dash of Hoshi!
