Demon and Fairy WeWriWar 33


Hello everyone and Happy New Year!
Welcome to Week-end Writing Warrior and Snippet Sunday.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
After being outside in swimming suit in Okinawa, Sendai is a bit like hell even though there is less snow than I expected. Anyway, let's continue with our story.

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 didn't going to let him go that easily. Kallisto seems to have a very strange combination of people taking care of the security of the house, which scares Seti a little bit while Kallisto seems to consider that he is her best protection. He decided to fly away then notice the arrival of Kelpie. Kelpie had just ask Kallisto if he has already told her about Kordelius' ugliness.

Here are my 8 sentences, we start just where we left of. 
Game version of prince Kordelius
 
“I see,” Kallisto muttered half amused, she knew that he was going to talk forever and ever, once he started about prince Kordelius and how bad everything around him was, nothing could stop him. 
What Kelpie didn’t know was that the fairies had sent her a picture of the prince when they came to take hers and that he was looking totally charming with his almond-shaped blue eyes and his short deep blue hair. She also knew that he was playing the flute as well. But the more she had been looking at the picture alone in her room at night, the more she had been thinking that he was just too perfect to be really lovable. Kelpie’s talk was just part of his plan and she knew it, every time he was lying he would start his sentence with a long “well” as to gather the best lies possible. He could almost have made her like Kordelius. It would have been a nice surprise to discover how good he was if Kelpie had been her only informer. But it would have been absolutely horrifying as well, to wait to be married to someone as awful as Kelpie described him.

  2. This is one funny story with enough characters to make it a Russian novel. Charming pic of the prince. Is he good or bad?

  3. A bit of a reveal from last week's snippet. Me thinks Kelpie's comments come from being just a wee bit jealous!

  12. I'm glad she knows when Kelpie is lying! That will be a huge help to her. And if the guy looks/seems too good to be true, he probably is.

  13. I'm glad she can tell when Kelpie's lying. That will be a huge help in this situation. And if that guy looks/seems too good to be true, he probably is.

  15. Poor Kelpie sounds like a terrible liar!

    Hmm... wonder if the picture is a bit of a lie, too. It might make him look better than he really does.
