The morning is just beginning, Not really, I’ve been up since 5:30 but the caffeine is just now making its way across the blood brain barrier. It’s slow process that requires multiple infusions of coffee.
Today is Teaser Tuesday! So I thought I’d share a little snippet from my current Work in Progress, The Veiled Path to Destiny~ The Veil Book 2. It’s unedited and subject to change. Enjoy!
Caomhnóir glared at Cóipeáil, refusing to rise to the bait. “Where is the King?”
Cóipeáil scratched his chin and shot him an incredulous look, “Where do you think he is?”
Without a word in answer to the posed question, the Guardian of the Queen spun on his heel towards the door. His progress to the exit halted no more than two steps into his trek by Cóipeáil sifting in front of him, blocking his path. “You would do well to get out of my way,” Caomhnóir warned.
Legs spread apart, arms folded across his chest, Cóipeáil cocked an eyebrow up and smirked, “Just where do you think you’re going Oh Powerless One?”
“To the Queen, of course.”
A small laugh escaped Cóipeáil’s lips, “Pray tell. Why?”
Hands clenched at his sides, Caomhnóir swallowed the urge to punch the mediary in the face. “The King left right before he was about to restore my powers. If the Queen called to him, there must be some sort of trouble.” He explained slowly through clenched teeth. “It is my job to protect her.”
“Protect her?” Cóipeáil asked incredulously. “You aim to protect her from the King?”
“He left here with nary a word at her call. Why would he do that if she were not in trouble?”
Cóipeáil roared with laughter. “If you have to ask, then you truly have been alone entirely too long.” With a sweep of his arm towards the door, he stepped back. “By all means, go save the Queen from the King. I’m sure he will reward you handsomely.” ©Jolanthe Aleksander, The Veiled Path to Destiny~The Veil Book 2.
