Snippet Sunday group from facebook--not us, but many of our participants do both, can be found HERE
This week's snippet is from "The Sands of Dhor". Lily, abducted from Earth by alien slavers, is following Theusand. He'd not a slaver. He's Dhor'en; they communicate mind to mind.
They've left the section of the ship where he and his Chays (monks) are quartered. It's the first time she's left that deck since Lord Sand rescued her from the slave fight ring in the belly of the ship. He has just accused her of being irrational. She accused him of causing her irrationality. Then he did a very human thing--laughed, and it has begun to thaw her heart. The last sentence posted last week was spoken by Theusand: “There are worse things I could cause you to do.”
Continuing from there...
"Yeah. And I bet before you get me back to Earth, I’ll have experienced all of them.”
His voice went back to cool and even, his smile and his laughter gone. “As I said, I have assimilated the content of your books of learning. “
“When? Wait. How...why did you do that?”
“None of that is necessary to complete this conversation. 'Higher education’ as your people refer to it, specifically health--have you studied health?”
That last question sounds like bait to me. What an emotional rollercoaster ride he is, huh? She just gets a little soft spot for him, and then he turns back on the arrogance, full force. Or is there another reason his mirth vanished?
What works and what doesn't? I'm grateful for every bit of feedback you share.
The following photo shows where I was last week. We drove south several states to see totality. Very cool...
