Time for another Weekend Writing Warriors snippet. Every Sunday, I will join a bunch of writers and post an 8-sentence snippet of my current project. You can click on the link to see what everyone else is up to.
This next section was a major plot twist. Even I didn’t see it coming until I wrote this. Kinda takes Ilsi in a completely different direction, but I like it. I don’t know if I can explain anymore without revealing too much—at least to the people who have read parts of my WIP.
“The people are awaiting her arrival,” the Elven general replied. “We will follow tradition once she and all the other fallen soldiers make it to our lands. For now, you may do or say what you think would be appropriate before we leave.”
“Most excellent,” Karachi replied. “We will say a few words to bid you and your company farewell.”
“The people have already decided,” she interjected, as if fearing the topic would soon change. “They wish to enact Ilsi of Dove as temporary leader of Ladala’s people until a new leader is selected.”
Hopefully next week will make sense!
