Welcome Warriors, and Snipsuns, and anyone else who wanders in.
Weekend Writing Warriors is a weekly bloghop. Each week, participants sign up HERE at wewriwa.com, then post 8 sentences of their work, published or unpublished, to go live between noon, Saturday and 9:00 AM Sunday EST. Then we visit each other and read, comment, critique, encourage--all those things that do a solitary writer's heart good.
Snippet Sunday group from facebook--not us, but many of our participants do both, can be found HERE
I've picked up directly from two weeks ago when Kad started to consider the idea of remaining downriver for the night, and heading upstream into the mountains after sunrise . Creative punctuation in use today.
Fode answered, his voice low enough that a casual listener wouldn't hear his words. "Your friend does present a particular challenge, but like I said, I know people who'd be willing to put you up, all of you... for the right money." He looked around the room and when his eyes settled back on Kad, he added, "Money always has the final say."
Kad didn't need to be told that; he knew how things worked. There weren't many times when money didn't have the final say, even when it came to turning in a so-called friend who was harboring a "savage". Still, something told him to trust this guy. He glanced at his companions one more time, allowing his eyes to linger on Tayden. The full weight of his friend's safety, likely his very life, rested on Kad's shoulders, a reminder of how much he was going to risk when he agreed to Fode's offer.
That's it. What jumps out at you, good or bad? I'd love to hear it. Thank you so much for reading this.
