Weekend Writing Warriors #SundaySnippet - 'Dancing With Fate' - is danger where she least expects it?

Hi fellow  Snippeteers and readers.  Welcome to  my Weekend Warriors post  and another snippet from my fantasy novella, Dancing With Fate. Thank you to everyone who's been following my snippets so far. Don't forget to visit the other authors at the link below this post, there's something for all tastes.


Last week: Terpsichore, muse of dance, has been given a new mission by Apollo, to restore joy and the love of dancing to the Celts of 5th Century Wales. He warns her that she will have to take the form of a mortal and to be careful not to put herself in danger.
SNIPPET:  (Some creative punctuation from published version, to comply with 10  sentence rule.)

What was Apollo keeping hidden though? She could always tell when he was holding something back, what had he not told her? Still, he would surely have her best interests at heart, no doubt, he would reveal it when he judged the time to be right.

She left the Great Hall through one of the rear doors. Was it her imagination or did she hear the sound of footsteps, as if someone scurried away down a side corridor? She glanced around and narrowed her eyes as she saw what looked like a tall figure slip into the shadows, but she could not be sure. It might just be a trick of the light, had she imagined the dark form, the glint of torchlight on metal, gold or perhaps brass? Could someone have been eavesdropping on her conversation with Apollo? She hurried on silent feet to where she saw the figure disappear, but there was nothing. Nothing except a prickling at the back of her neck and the uncomfortable feeling she had not been mistaken. 

BLURB
(Cover by Miss Mae)
When Terpsichore, the Muse of Dance, is assigned to revisit the land of Wales, her task seems simple enough. She is unaware there is a hidden agenda. Before she can return to Olympus her path crosses that of the mysterious Myrddin, and her heart is lost. But Myrddin is promised to another. His mind is set on the dangerous task that lies before him, and the woman he has sworn to save. Nevertheless, he cannot deny the growing attraction between him and the beautiful stranger he meets along the way. 

 Terpsichore and Myrddin face a deadly force that threatens to part them forever. Is she destined to lose the only man she has ever truly loved? Is there nothing she can do to save him? Finally, when all seems lost, in desperation she finds herself DANCING WITH FATE.

  8. Several intriguing threads in that snippet. I thought you created the ominous atmosphere very well, with the eavesdropper. and I'm not so sure I'd be as quick to trust Apollo as she is...enjoyed the excerpt!

    1. Thanks Veronica - in fact she doesn't have a lot of choice - Apollo is the leader of the muses and they are obliged to act on his wishes - he does care about them though, he knows she's capable of fulfilling the mission he's sent her on.
