Good morning Everyone and happy Wednesday!
It is another incredible day to be alive and another wonderful opportunity to let you have a sneak peak into the the next book in the Covenant of Shadows series. Silver is nearly complete and is in the middle of proof reading so it won’t be too long now before it will be up for grabs.
Yay!! So exciting.
Alright, let’s get to it. Here is this Wednesday’s #Wip snippet. Big hugs and Bigger dreams, Kade.
With narrowed eyes and her chin draping as his words spill out, Gabrian takes them in, however convoluted they sound. “But what does this have to do with me?”
“Unfortunately, sweet child, everything,” Rhada delivers to her, voice low and sullen.
Such queer words, she thinks, her eyes searching through the meaning. “I don’t understand. What do you mean?” she pleads, her grip firm now, pulling tight against his sleeves.
“Even I cannot divulge this forbidden liberty of matters spoken. My tongue is bound to its limits of truth and knowledge. It is your will and choice of direction on the path taken now that will allow you this revelation,” he offers, his golden hue shimmering around the edges of his long black lashes, casting an enchanting glow across his cheeks. “So, answer me this child, search the innards of your soul. How do you feel at this very moment?”
Gabrian swallows, pulling hard through her memories, drowning in her torn and mixed emotions, and tries hard to choose the right words to say. She opens the gates to let everything in, seeing the faces of all those she loved and still loves, and answers him with merely a whispered phrase. “I feel like I am coming undone. Like I am being pulled in a thousand different directions at once.”
He cups her trembling arms and gazes on her with adornment. His face is soft and serene but shadowed in a moment of sadness as he smiles. “Then you, my dear, are not ready for this side.” Sliding his grip to the tips of her fingers, Rhada gives a gentle squeeze and lets them drop. “It is done,” he announces, stepping away, and utters something to himself undecipherable by her.
“What is done?” she huffs, her eyes wild as she seeks understanding. “What does that mean?”
“It means that you must be brave now. The worlds are counting on you, so you must believe. You must reach deep inside of your very essence and you must fight.”
