Demon and Fairy WeWriWar 17

Hello Warriors and dear readers, welcome to another Week-end Writing Warrior blog post.
Thank you for all the comments last week, they made me very happy. The no touching situation is one of Seti particular trait. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

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, at the moment he is about to kill the snake, Kallisto tells him to stop and had him let the snake on the other side of the barrier. Then Seti had an unexpected reaction but Kallisto isn't going to let him go that easily. Who will convince the other?

I'm cheating a bit, I have 9 sentences.

She looked at him curiously, wandering what he meant by dangerous. He was looking miserable.
“I don’t think you can be really dangerous for me. The barrier just let you in and you saved me from the snake, you are my hero you know.”
She was smiling again. As far as he could remember, nobody ever smiled at him like that. It made him feel all warm inside and a little bit nervous as well. He could never have imagined such a pleasant feeling.
“I think you need to change the barrier, to make it more powerful. It’s not too efficient if it let me in,” Seti said.

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

  1. Linda, I really like his reaction in this snippet. I think he's fallen for her by now :)

  2. Charming. I'm enjoying your eights. The story grows on me.

  3. Poor Seti. I hope he can accept himself the way she seems to.

  4. I love how he talks about the barrier instead of addressing her remarks that he's her hero LOL. I love Seti. Great snippet!

  5. Seti seems confused when someone is nice and kind to him. Interesting snippet.

  6. She tells him he's her hero, but he talks about barriers. As I read it, he follows his own agenda. Nice snippet.

  7. Poor Seti. He needs to look at himself through fairy colored lenses : ) This is a sweet eight!

  8. Gotta love Seti. His concern for her. Oh, he's the hero--like it or not. :)

  9. I like Seti, I'm not sure if he's avoiding her gratitude, but I think he's adorable totally changing subjects like that. LOL Great 8!

  10. Awe, such self-doubt, Instead of just enjoying it and going with it, he warns to increase the barrier. Just imagine how he must feel--usually looked at with fear and loathing. But she gave him a sincere smile. Nice snippet, Linda!

  11. Aww, he's her hero! Tender moment. :) Love how the barrier is affected too. Great 8!
