Weekend Writing Warriors – The Rose-Spar Ladies 5

Welcome friends, followers, and Weekend Writing Warriors!

This week, I’m sharing eight more sentences from my funny fantasy adventure, “The Rose-Spar Ladies.” So far, Cromeve has ruined one of the priceless carved ‘Lady’ statues, which he gave to his wife as a present. Then he went to visit an old friend…

“We’re going to rob Old Man Ustit.”

“Well, it shouldn’t take much for a clever man like you to work it out. You studied with the best thieves in the land, didn’t you?”

“So sorry you’ve come all this way to no avail, old chum, but it’s out of the question.” Vorray staggered to his feet. “I’ll be pleased to have you to dinner, for old time’s sake, but then you simply must leave.”

  4. Who has he been robbing?

    Interesting. If not people, then who or what? Given that this is fantasy, my mind immediately leapt to other species, but I don’t know enough about this setting to know whether or not that makes sense.
