Weekend Writing Warriors 1/4/15 #8sunday

New year, new story! This month I’ll be pulling from a novella series I’m working on, with each book based on a different fairy tale. Today’s snippet is from the first one (no title yet). It starts out with the MC Nyah arguing with her betrothed, Wynne.

I stomped across the village square, bucket swinging in one arm and chicken tucked under another, not caring who witnessed my ire.

“Nyah, wait!”

Against my better judgment, I stopped with a huff and waited for Wynne to catch up; maybe he wanted to apologize.

“You are being ridiculous.”

Or, maybe he didn’t.

I glared at him and said, “You stole my chicken, so I took a chicken back; what is so ridiculous about that?”

He glared back and said, “I didn’t steal anything because first, we’re betrothed, which means what is yours is mine, so if I take something of yours, it’s like taking something of mine, and second, you owe me a chicken because….”

He trailed off as I continued to glare, then told him, “Then give me your cow.”
