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. In this snippet, a continuation of yesterday’s Sweet Saturday Sample, Alyse and Geoffrey are in the middle of a lover’s quarrel over Alyse’s ability to choose appropriate characters for them to portray in the joust’s procession. She is about to let him have it!
Alyse drew herself up in indignation, and he stood helpless before her, waiting for her scorn to engulf him.
“If you had doubts as to my ability to choose wisely, my lord, you should not have asked me to attend to this task. I had no mind to do it until you bade me, so there would have been no offense. But to ask and then doubt me because of the words of another does not bode well for our marriage.” She paused and squared her shoulders. “In light of your misgivings, Sir Geoffrey, I believe it will be best if you make this decision for us. I would not be the one to bring shame to you through some carelessness. I therefore relinquish my choice to you.”
If you want more, please come back next week! 🙂 Right now, you can click here to hop on to more Writing Warrior posts! And thanks for coming by!
