I've Followed You Since The Days of Magic -Snippet Sunday

~~Warning: mature themes~~

On Sundays, I share tidbits of my works in progress as part of Weekend Warrior’s 8-Sentence Sunday


This snippet is another from Brigid's Awakening, a short erotic fantasy from a series I'm working on called the Sons of Herne series.

Last time, Brigid had been waiting out a storm in a strange barn when a man crashed in, acting as though he'd been expecting her...


“I’m not who you think I am,” she said, clutching the quilts tighter against her.
“On the contrary, I know you most fully--Brighid.”
Her mouth fell open. His pronunciation was off, yet the way he said it with a long e at the end rolled most appealingly off his lips.
“It’s pronounced Bridge-id where I come from,” she said. “But how do you know my name--were you following me?”
“I have followed you since the days of the Tuatha de Danann, when hillsides marked Imbolc eve with bonfire light and magic flowed as freely as the fiery hair spilling down your back.”
His speech held an odd dialect, as strange as his appearance--wild layers of hair with narrow braids throughout, circlets of reeds crowning his head, wrists, and ankles, and bare-chested with cross-shaped streaks over his pectorals and on his forehead.


So, what do you think?

FYI, I was hoping to keep rolling with snippets on Sunday, but the truth is I've been struggling with writing for some time now. I'm starting up a new blog called Experimental Positivity, a venture I hope will help me come around and beat the writer's block I've been facing. Wish me luck!
