It’s time for another SFF Saturday Snippet! What’s SFF Saturday? It’s a group of authors who post snippets of SFF prose and poetry for comment. You can check out other SFF Saturday posts, too.
For the next couple of weeks, I’ll be giving you snippets from a short story I wrote called Old Wounds. This is the second part. You can find the first part here.
When we left Master Sorne, she’d just been interrupted by her apprentice, and there’s too much fear in his voice.
Oh damn. She pulled off her jeweler’s loop and picked up her sword. “Yes?” She used her best ill-tempered voice.
“There’s a gentleman here to see you.”
Only one? She slipped her sword free from its scabbard. “Send him away. I’m busy.”
