SundaySnippets, #WeekendWarriors, 'Dancing With Fate' "You're back. I wondered if I would see you again."

Hello fellow Snippeteers and readers.  Welcome to my Weekend Warriors post. I'm continuing  with another snippet from my fantasy novella, Dancing With Fate. Thank you to everyone who's been following my snippets so far, and been kind enough to comment. Sorry I didn't manage to get around as many blogs last week as I wanted to, it was a really busy week. I'll try to do better this time.

Having fulfilled the mission set by Apollo, Terpsichore the muse of dance  is about to return to Olympus when she meets the mysterious Myrddin.  She is lured into a bog by the evil Ellilldan, the fire demons.Myrddin rescues her. Although there is a mutual attraction between them, Myrddin is betrothed to another. As she prepares to leave, having bathed in the waterfall nearby, a messenger from Apollo tells her to go with Myrddin -- that he is in danger.

This is a few paragraphs on from
Last week's snippet ...

SNIPPET  (As always, please forgive the creative punctuation to comply with the ten sentence rule. Very slightly changed from the published version.)

Myrddin tightened his saddle and looked over his shoulder as he heard soft footsteps behind him.

"You're back. I wondered if I would see you again."

She seemed surprised, almost startled. "I didn't think I'd been so long, besides, how far did you think I'd have travelled without my horse?" Her tone seemed unusually sharp. Perhaps she'd been more upset by her experience with the Ellylldan than she let on.

"That’s a good point, I don’t suppose you’d want to leave such a good animal behind. I have saddled her for you, the girths just need tightening."

"Thank you, you are very kind." She pulled the leather strap up a couple of holes and vaulted into the saddle before Myrddin could offer assistance.

 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.

  1. I wonder how she'll find an excuse to stay to save him from danger.

    1. I have a feeling he won't need much of an excuse to keep her with him!

  2. Like Jessica, I'm wondering what is going to keep these two in each other's company from now on.

  3. Is Apollo playing match-maker? Very nice snippet.

  4. Ooh, a bit tense between them, it seems! Enjoyed the excerpt, can't wait for more.

    1. Yes, she's a bit worried about the message she was given.

  5. Beware before the love bug catches her and him. . .

  6. I sense she's not happy about her assignment.

  7. I love the flirty dance between them. And now you've thrown danger in the mix to make it into a spicy tango!

    1. Thanks Nancy - love the dancing references! :)
