Today I’m trying another SSS-esque meme, called Weekend Writing Warriors. I’m sorry I didn’t get to post for Sweet Saturday Samples yesterday, but I was in a conference all day and couldn’t post the night before. My bad. 😦 But you do get 8 more sentences from Betrothal today. 🙂
These are the next sentences from Betrothal, my medieval romance set in the 14th century. In this snippet talk turns to the coming royal procession for the joust. All the courtiers are to be dressed as knights of the Round Table.
Thomas shook his head. “’Tis no matter. ’Twas long ago, but aye, a reckoning it was. So,” he resumed his carefree manner, deftly changing the subject, “what knight will you portray at our Round Table? I have managed to secure Sir Tristan to Lady Carlyle’s Isolde.”
Geoffrey arched an eyebrow. “Does that not, mayhap, strike a bit too close to the bone for comfort, Thomas?” Lady Carlyle was Thomas’s current amour although her husband seemed none the wiser at present.
