Demon and Fairy WeWriWar 49

Hello everyone !

Welcome to Week-end Writing Warrior and Snippet Sunday.

Sorry, I'm running a bit late on the blog today, I just slept all morning after my crazy day in Macau. If you want to know more, the Hong Kong travel series will be coming soon. 

In the previous episodes: Seti was in pain and flying to see Kallisto who is the only person who can help him get rid 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. Seti is still around listening to their conversation. Kelpie is going straight to the point. Seti wanted to run away, but still decided to stay. Kelpie continues to tell Kallisto she should married her so she decided to give him a love test. Kallisto asked him: "What do you love about me?" Seti's answered in his head, then we saw Kelpie's answer to Kallisto and the argument that follows. Let's see what will happen now that Kelpie is gone. 

Here are my 8 sentences, we start just where we left of (aka: Seti realised that Kallisto might like him).

It made him really happy, but at the same time, she was supposed to get married to that horrible Kordelius or to Kelpie. He wasn’t sure who was worse. For a second, he thought about running away with her before her deadline. She would escape her wedding and he would escape his parents and the Demon World, but it wasn’t a very good idea. The demons would pursue him anywhere and the fairies would probably pursue her too, not even talking about Kelpie who could surely appear anywhere near a drop of water. His worse problem was still himself, he knew he couldn’t be near her, it was too risky. He rolled on the ground and looked at the sky, wishing for a shooting star to appear. “My dear Seti, you are being an idiot again,” he said out loud.

And here are few sentences more to reach the end of the chapter if you want to.

“First, it’s not the shooting stars season yet. Second, they probably can’t grant wishes anyway. Third, even if they could, they probably wouldn’t do it for you. Fourth, you were lucky enough today for a whole month.” 
He smiled and jumped on his feet before throwing a last look at the water. 
“Lucky enough for a whole life,” he said flying away in direction of his house.

Well Seti maybe not, maybe not...

  1. I love him talking to himself. (And the extra lines were heartbreaking.)

  2. He's so in love with her. I want them to be together. Great snippet.

  3. This scene is very realistic, I enjoyed his angst.

  4. I agree with Gem. It's a great snippet. I do have to pull on the moderator hat and request that you please stick to 8 sentences. I know you were trying to wrap up the chapter and I truly appreciate that you let readers know there was a 2nd snippet, but we don't want it to become a habit. Have a wonderful day and keep up the great writing!

  5. So cute. I'm glad he actually thought a bit about running away with her...that's maybe a step in the right direction. For your french to english translation...I think you mean shooting star instead of shouting, and grant wishes instead of grand : )

  6. Oh the angst and love shining through your snippet. Good writing, Linda.

  7. Very nice snippet. So many interesting obstacles to overcome. I hope they do.

  8. Hope there was no one in hearing while he was talking aloud to himself.

  9. I want them to be together too! Another excellent snippet. Poor Seti.

  10. Talking to himself was a nice touch. Good excerpt.
