Six Sentence Sunday: The Ring

I haven't done much work on Deathhawk's Betrayal recently as I'm currently doing a workshop called '5 in 10'. We write 5 short stories in 10 weeks. It's been a great experience so far and we've written three stories. Excellent for getting the creative juices going. Once that's done, I'll go back to Deathhawk's Betrayal as I have learned so much recently I have more changes to make. Until then, here's another snippet.
Danek curled around his belly, gasping. Astarl seized his hand, plucking out the finger bearing Aldenon's signet. Leaning in close, she jammed his wrist between her knees and braced it with her right hand. Her breathing came fast and ragged. ‘I’m taking back what’s mine, with interest.’
With one jerk of the knife, she sliced the finger off.

She certainly seems to have a mean streak :-)  Nice one.

Ciara Ballintyne said...

You'd be mean if you'd suffered what she has :-)
