Weekend Writing Warriors 2/8/15 #8sunday

horseSo far this year I’ve been posting from the first book in a series of retold fairy tales. The first story is Beauty and the Beast.

Brandulfr, the leader of an army, has just come into MC Nyah’s village. Last week he told the villagers nothing bad would happen if they cooperate.

“And if we refuse?” Wynne called out. I cringed; did he not know the threat these men posed?

Brandulfr’s smile no longer reached his eyes. “Perhaps then I should give you an incentive.” He scanned the crowd, then charged.

Villagers scattered amidst screams. I grabbed tightly at the hand of Payton, my younger sister. Not tightly enough, however, as the warrior swooped in, hauled her across his saddle, and galloped away.
