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 past couple of weeks, I’ve been giving you snippets from a short story I wrote called Old Wounds. This is the seventh part. You can find the other parts here.
When we left Master Sorne, her mysterious guest asked for the rest of Sorne’s blades.
Damn. Sorne added the knife from her belt and boot to the counter. “That’s all,” she said.
“His life depends on your honesty, Mistress.”
“Master,” she said. “And I’m lame, not blind.” She kept her hands where the man could see them. “How much do you want?”
He jerked his head up and had the gall to look insulted.
