What Did It Say?


Yeah, I missed my WIPpet last week (found out later it was also the last day of ROW80 check-ins for Round2, so missed that deadline too and posted my EoR Assessment on Sunday). No regrets though. It was our wedding anniversary (14 years!), and it was family time.
MjAxNC04ZjBlYTU5ZmNiZjdiZjY4Still, I like the WIPpet as a bloghop (I like the people here a lot), and I missed it terribly when I stopped posting over the winter.  Thing was, once I missed a week, I felt bad for doing so, and I moped instead of returning.

This time, I’m just jumping back in.  Everyone misses a week here and there.

Now on to today’s post: since I’m posting this late, on the 30th, I’m giving you five sentences.  The day divided by the month…  30/6=5

This snippet follows directly on the heels of my last WIPpet.  I don’t know if it helps answer the question I asked in the last piece, but…  it may help.  It was really interesting reading what thought about the character in question.

Of course, some “bruises” aren’t caused by violence.  😉

Atyr blinked. That was certainly a description of Val’s brother she hadn’t heard before. Was the awkward gentleness she and Riia discussed only because he’d cared out of fear before?

And, if so, what did it say about last night, his reticence his restraint, his coldness today?

Alanii was nodding astutely. “I’m not going to get between you and your master, Atyriia.”

“He’s not my master.” To her own ears her voice sounded weak. She forged on. “It was just realizing how bad Val was. We needed comfort, Alanii, and there was only each other. It was just mutual comfort.”

Alanii looked over his expression now thoughtful. “That was rather intimate comfort.”

Enjoyed that?  Then head over to the WIPpet linky and visit some our other awesome members. A toast to Emily Witt for keeping this little dance of ours going each week when some of us (*hangs head*) can barely remember what day it is most of the time.

  1. “rather intimate comfort” ha! Great snippet.
    And I’m with you on barely remembering the day of the week. If it wasn’t for my daily to-do lists, I’d probably forget more often. Even with that, I kept thinking yesterday was Thursday and today’s Friday.


  2. It sounds as her need for intimacy leads into some form of BDSM. I am interested in reading where you go with this.

    • Not… exactly. Though, in this particular case there was a bit of pain involved that was designed as escapism. That’s true.

      Thanks for stopping in, Patricia.
