Challenge: Camp NaNo: Day 26


April 26

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.

About Kathryn

My love of books has been carefully cultivated by the adults who raised me and also by the friends who love to share. My life has led me down long library shelves, to online forums, fanfiction sites, the front of a lecture hall, and into the desks of college classrooms. With an English degree and a couple master’s classes in Children’s Literature, I am now a bookseller for Barnes & Noble. I have been an editor for Wizarding Life Networks (the people who brought you Wizarding Life, Panem October, and MyHogwarts now HogwartsIsHere).
