It's the name that caught me - some days the demon in me definitely should be chained away from humanity safely out of sight in a dark dungeon. So, just for the craic, I decided to sign up. Maybe they'll never let me out again.
I'm sharing something I am currently working on, a shifter novella, which as no name as yet...so far the file is simply called "Shifter WIP" - what a testament to my great imagination. No wonder I write. This is the opening of the book, so no lead in is necessary as yet.
Cuan looked compassionately at the anxious woman as she willingly offered her hands for chaining. The trust in her eyes was heart wrenching. She depended on him to keep her safe. More than that, to keep her unsullied, untainted.
“Are sure this is what you want?” he asked. All she did was nod her agreement as a solitary tear fell down her cheek. She turned round on her tummy so her arms could be placed in the cuffs. He snapped two more cuffs around her ankles even as he heard her sob, but it was when he attached the collar that she finally protested.
“No,” she shouted.
“Without it, the cuffs might be useless, I don’t know if you’ll be able to slip them if you change,” he said softly and Jenny again nodded her agreement.
“It’s funny how quickly you’ve gone from the enemy to my only friend” she said as she accepted his bindings. “Take care of me. Please. I’m scared.”
Thank you for coming along and taking the time to read my offering. Comments good bad and indifferent are all really welcome. I'm probably last on the list and hopefully you'll have already called to all the other entries, but if not, please do follow all on the linky list for a dark and dangerous RTK Dungeon Crawl...
