I was skimming through my own work today, and I found this delightful tidbit. It wanted sharing:
It was nearly done, its skin begin to sizzle, when Keagan stirred.
Veil brightened and hurried to him. “You mad idiot,” he laughed, leaning over him. “How do you feel?”
“Tired,” Keagan grumbled.
“Can you ride?” Thir Fowler asked.
Keagan pushed himself up on his elbows and then sat up. He didn’t grimace, did so smoothly. He nodded.
“Good. You are a mad idiot, and I’ll give you a proper telling-off when you’re fully recovered, don’t you worry about that,” Thir Fowler snarled.
