Weekend Writing Warriors November 19, 2017

   It's time for snips and bits of amazing tales by talented writers! Weekend Writing Warriors is a weekly bloghop. Each week, participants sign up HERE at wewriwa.com, then post 8 to 10 sentences of their work, published or unpublished, on their own blog to go live by before 9:00 AM Sunday, EST.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
            This week's snippet is from "The Sands of Dhor". 
Lily, abducted from Earth by alien slavers, is following Theusand. He's 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, and have arrived at what she thinks might be the helm of the ship she's on. There's a crew member there--a different sort of alien. Theusand spoke with him, and it appears to have rattled her protector/captor--which is quite odd. He just informed her that they have an agreement to reach.

The excerpt:

“We have some kind of agreement to reach? What?”
“Not now, Lily. My mind is occupied.”
“I’ve never seen you like this. What has you rattled?”
“Rattled? I don’t think my behavior fits the Earth definition of ‘rattled’.”
“Seriously? What’s up all the sudden with this definition stuff”
Theusand narrowed his eyes at her. “Didn’t you want to ask me something about the man I just spoke to?”
Well, he is easily irritated. 
That's it. Thanks so much for taking the time to read this.  All feedback appreciated!
