Fire Daughter – it’s here!

15 May, 2021

Other figures issued from the western exit bearing torches. Lored caught sight of a green robe and his heart beat faster with expectation. Surely that was Antti the Kansler come to tell him the klanchiefs’ agreement.

As he hurried back down the path, the sun disappeared and darkness swooped across the island. With a murmured word, Lored caused a faint light to glow from the carved merlin’s head at the top of his staff. He drew near the main roadway and wondered why the Kansler had brought so many soldiers with him. He smiled in welcome at his friend. Antti did not smile back and unease stirred in Lored’s stomach.

“You have news for me?” Lored came to a halt before the Kansler and the soldiers.

There was genuine regret in Antti’s heavy-browed eyes. “I am placing you under arrest, Lored, taku-kevir of Falnaboldu. Until further notice, you will remain in the holding cells.”

The Kansler gestured with one large gnarled hand and the soldier nearest to Lored seized him by the shoulders. The man was so taken aback that speech failed him and another soldier snatched the staff from his hands. The glowing light from the merlin’s head vanished at once and the soldier shivered.

Coming Soon – Fire Daughter

2 May, 2021
dark rock
towers skyward
the shadow stretches west
creeps swiftly, hastening night's shade - 
quiet
now but with a threat of fire
erupting, exploding
shattering earth;
black death

I wrote this butterfly cinquain to encapsulate one of the things that Lored fears during the telling of Fire Daughter. What do you think? Will YOU buy it?
