Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday! I’m working on my medieval novella, Betrothal, so I thought I’d share six sentences of that this week.
This snippet continues from where I left off yesterday on Sweet Saturday Sample, which you can read here. Geoffrey has just given Alyse some unexpected news about the coming joust and the part she is to play in itAn.
Alyse’s mouth dropped open and a thrill coursed through her body. “But I am only Princess Joanna’s attendant, Sir Geoffrey. Usually such honors are reserved for the Queen’s and Princess Isabella’s ladies, or the Duchesses and Countesses in the Royal Family. Why did they choose me?”
“Because I am to be one of the knights, and I begged a boon of the king to allow you to be my lady.”
She stared at him in shock, almost unbelieving, though she knew he would not lie about such a thing.
Thanks so much for visiting me today.
Now pop over to the Six Sentence Sunday list and check out the rest of the snippets. See you there!
