Weekend Writing Warriors Snippet Sunday - a new beginning for Megan

Continuing snippets from the draft of my unpublished fantasy novel 'The Matchmaker's Mare which takes place in Wales. The  story is told from three p.o.vs. and two time-lines. Today's excerpt is  from  Megan's p.o.v. and takes place in the present. She has just inherited Ty Gwyn cottage from her uncle, unaware of the legend that surrounds it. If you've been following the story so far, I'm sure you can  guess who once lived in the cottage.

Don't forget to visit the other authors at the link below the excerpt, there's something for all tastes.

I apologise for this not going up last week, I'd been away and pre-scheduled it and somehow missed that it hadn't posted. I'd also intended to visit the other snippets but didn't manage it as things have been a bit hectic. Will try to do better this week, although as always it may be late Sunday/Monday before I get around to visiting folks.

Here's a picture of me and Choccy Dog at the war memorial in Norfolk which we visited while we were away. As you can see from the fact my hair is at 'a quarter to three' it was a bit windy!


A faint scent of lavender drifted toward Megan on the warm, silky breeze, although it was still only early March, and she sniffed appreciatively.

I’ll have to check out the back garden as soon as I’ve settled in

There must be lavender bushes at the back of the cottage, since she couldn’t see any at the front, which was rather overgrown and neglected. 

As she inserted the key in the door, she fancied she heard the tinkle of little bells and looked around to see if there was anything in the trees to account for the sound. Perhaps it was garden chimes, but her uncle hadn’t been the type to have such fripperies as he would have called them, and she didn’t think there were any other houses close enough for the sound to carry. She must be imagining things.
She took a deep breath and stepped into the cottage. A new home, a new job and a new beginning. A chance to put behind her the events of the last twelve months and start afresh.
