BACKGROUND:
Having fulfilled the mission set by Apollo, Terpsichore the muse of dance is preparing to return to Olympus when she meets the mysterious Myrddin.  She is lured towards a host of glimmering, evil red lights, and although she senses the danger, she is now without her powers and has no means of resisting them. Myrddin rescues her and holds her in his arms. They kiss and he releases her swiftly, for he is betrothed to another This leads directly on from last week's snippet ..."Forgive me. It was just...I was so relieved the Ellylldan didn't take you."

SNIPPET  (As always, please forgive the creative punctuation to comply with the ten sentence rule.)

"Take me where - and who are the Ellylldan?"

"Goblin fire," he dropped her hands, put an arm lightly around her shoulder, and led her back to the campfire. He poked it with a stick until it flared up and she drew closer to the heat, "the Ellylldan lure the unwary into the bog land, those who follow them are never seen again." He paused,"of course, you are not from these parts, so you would not have heard of them."

"I had the sense of evil...an evil older than time itself."

Myrddin nodded, "they are certainly an ancient evil...and not confined to Cymru either. They appear in different guises in all four corners of the world."

Terpsichore wondered how he knew so much, it seemed, however, there was a lot about Myrddin she did not know. She wrinkled her nose as the heat from the fire dried the mud on her clothes, producing a putrid smell. 

"I think I should bathe and get rid of this mud."

The Expanding Universe - Volume 4 Spotlight

        Bringer of Chaos saga
Including Lights Out - A short story by Kayelle Allen from The Expanding Universe Vol 4 Edited by Craig Martelle

The newest The Expanding Universe anthology, number 4, is now available. Twenty great writers, twenty great stories, at a bargain price on Amazon.

Lights Out

He can save mankind.
After he does this one important thing.
Die.

Join the Ghost Corps, they said. You'll live forever, they said. You'll save mankind, they said. They didn't say that to do it, first he had to die.

When Tornahdo signs on the dotted line, he puts his life into the steady hands of the mighty Ghost Corps. Three grisly deaths and three agonizing resurrections later, he's assigned duty on the space station Enderium Six.

He's facing his most dangerous mission yet, the very reason the corps exists.

Tornahdo must take out the one man responsible for every war between humans and Ultras since the origin of the Ultra bloodline: the immortal king, Pietas.

If he succeeds, the war is over.

If he doesn't, the Ultras will rule mankind for another thousand years.

Either way, he must face an unbeatable, unkillable enemy, and this time--somehow--find a way to keep himself alive...

Lights Out

A short story in the Bringer of Chaos universe

Available within The Expanding Universe Vol 4, edited by Craig Martelle

#SundaySnippets, #WeekendWarriors, 'Dancing With Fate' "You know I am betrothed"

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.

BACKGROUND:
Having fulfilled the mission set by Apollo, Terpsichore the muse of dance is preparing to return to Olympus when she meets the mysterious Myrddin. Unaware of her goddess status, he invites her to share a meal with him and falls asleep by the campfire. She is lured towards a host of glimmering, evil red lights, and although she senses the danger, she is now without her powers and has no means of resisting them. Myrddin rescues her and holds her in his arm. This is a few passges on from last week's snippet .

Once more, his arms enfolded her. She felt the touch of his lips against her hair.


She tingled from head to foot, and a sweet ache throbbed deep within her. She molded her body to his, her breasts burning against his bare chest. Never before had she felt this way when a man kissed her...never had she wanted any man so much, never had she felt so nearly mortal. She felt his arousal, and closed her eyes in surrender. Then she heard his faint, ragged intake of breath as he ceased the kiss and released her.

Gently, he removed her hands from around his neck, holding them in both of his.

"I'm sorry, Cora. This is wrong."

If someone had slid a knife between her ribs the pain could not have been more intense, she closed her eyes, not wanting him to see the hurt in them.

"You know I am betrothed," he went on. "Forgive me. It was just...I was so relieved the Ellylldan didn't take you."
