Wednesday Words – Chapter One

Here is an excerpt from Chapter One of my novel Dragonscale Leggings
There is an end to this wasteland! We’re camped on the edge of it – Tygar and I. All day long we’ve followed the winding path through featureless grey rock. And now, at last we’re in another gully, full of grass and flowers and there’s a fast flowing stream running south. It smells of damp earth and sun baked grass. Tygar is happily tearing up great mouthfuls of the greenery. I’ve got a niggling thought that says ‘colic’ but I don’t understand what it means. I think Tygar knows what he’s doing. It’s wonderful to be lying on this thick, springy grass after a couple of days jolting around on Tygar’s back. He’s not exactly rider friendly, though he does stop when I tell him to. It’s not much fun having a cold supper again but this tinder and flint will not work. It’s strange, because I remember making it work once! But when or where will not come to mind…
