Demon and Fairy WeWriWar 13


Hello Warriors and dear readers, welcome to a new Week-end Writing Warrior blog post.
Thank you for missing me when I was away. I'm really glad to see that you didn't forget Seti during that time and to see so many comments last week-end.

You can win a signed copy of Demon and Fairy by participating to Mich's Summer Mystery (WARNING: the mystery may contains Rhinoceros and weird grammar) 
Now let's go to this week snippet, more on Demon and Fairy.

In the previous episodes: Seti was in pain and flying to see Kallisto who is the only person who can help him get ride of it. He remembered how he had met her the first time but unfortunately this time it was late at night and she was nowhere to be seen. Seti couldn't spend the night on the Beach and decided to fly home not noticing that another demon entered her house. We followed Seti and discovered his chaotic bedroom before meeting his family for breakfast. They were arguing about Seti's sister's arranged wedding being canceled by the other family and Samira was crying. Their father said that Seti would just have to apologize. and we learn what Seti thinks about the situation. Seti met the twin's father and gave him an unexpected apology demon style which scared everyone around except Taram who had been spying at the scene from the stairs with his twin brother Torin. After the confrontation, as always when he has a headache, Seti flew to the beach and fell asleep near the tidal pool. When Seti waked, he saw Kallisto facing a snake he managed to get through the barrier and stop it from attacking her.


Here are my 8 sentences we start again just where we stopped last time. (Of course he is Seti.)


“Don’t!”
Her voice made him stop and he looked at her. She was here, in front of him and she could see him. 
“Don’t kill it,” she stood up a bit shaking. 
She must have been so scared by the snake or maybe she was just afraid of him like everyone else. 
“Snakes are really dangerous, you know they like to eat fairies but I don’t know how this one passed the barrier, now we just have to take it out," she was smiling now, she was smiling at him and he couldn’t believe it. 
She walked toward the end of the garden, where the grass was so high that it reached up to half of her legs. 
“Come with me” she said.


I hope you enjoyed today's excerpt and see you next week for more of Seti's adventures.

  4. I liked the visual with the grass, too. I also liked his thrill of joy "she was smiling at him and he couldn’t believe it." The beloved sees him and smiles! Lovely!

  14. Just because something is dangerous doesn't mean you have to kill it, a lesson that's good to learn. :)

  18. I really like the unease, the fear of not doing the right thing and the relief to see the other smile. Like any new friendship (or more...)

  21. I love that she just wants to let it go -- on the other side of the barrier. (I like snakes.)

  22. Makes me think of how we treat spiders at our house...hubby wants to kill them, and I want to just move them outside.
