Six Sentence Sunday: The Witches of Arion 7

Welcome back to Six Sentence Sunday! We’re still at Fox’s Fair, but things are getting dicey between Nashua’s arrogant mother and the witch known as Moon White, so Auntie pleads on Mom’s behalf…

First week Second week Third week Fourth week Fifth week Sixth week

“My sister was harsh and rude to you – but I apologize on her behalf. If you demand recompense or blood for her insult, then take it from me.”

Moon White stared at Lima for a moment, then snapped her fingers, and Mother sprang back from the fire, landing in a dusty heap, while some of the other fair-goers crowded near the pits laughed at her.

“I would not have let her hurt herself,” Moon White intoned. “I thank you for your apology, sister, and commend the courage of your offer. If I may do you a favor before I leave your town, come to me and ask – but for now, I must get back to my fortunes.”

Thanks to all who have given feedback, and I look forward to your comments! 🙂

    Ah – that seems as though it was more of a test for your protagonist than a punishment for her mother. 🙂 nicely handled.


  2. Ana says:

    Glad that it turned out well.


  3. Kate Warren says:

    Lima dealt with that perfectly.


  4. Definitely interesting (and enticing) to the daughter!


  5. Either Lima is very brave or she’s good at reading people! I’m (mostly) glad Nashua’s mother didn’t get hurt! I wonder what Nashua’s reaction is to all this?


  6. Interesting world you have built here. I’d like to know more.


  7. Intriguing excerpt, really makes me curious about what came before and what will happen NEXT.


  8. Love the tone of this! Looking forward to reading more.
