Welcome back to the Weekend Writing Warriors again. I’m so enjoying seeing my old friends and finding new authors. Hope you all have a great hop!
Today you get more from Betrothal, my medieval romance set in the 14th century. These sentences show what Alyse has been doing while Geoffrey is having his crisis ( if you want to see what happened up to this point, check out yesterday’s post from Sweet Saturday) If you’d like to catch up, you can read some of the posts from last week here. In this snippet, Alyse is telling Princess Johanna and her waiting women about her news from Geoffrey.
She tried not to smile too broadly, lest she seem boastful, but could not keep the satisfaction out of her voice. “Sir Geoffrey has asked me to choose which knight and lady we are to portray.”
The room buzzed like an excited hive at her words, each lady expressing an opinion about who Alyse should choose.
“Oh, choose Sir Lancelot, Alyse, with you as Elaine.”
“Anne, you know Prince Edward will be Lancelot.”
“What about Sir Perceval?” Maurya reminded her.
“Sir Perceval could be a good choice,” Alyse admitted, “but he is sometimes portrayed as uncouth or loutish. I would not want Sir Geoffrey seen as such.”
