Hi guys and gals. Below is an excerpt from one of my recent short stories, "The Siege" from my Darksword universe. Comments appreciated!

Quote:
Carterria Castle

"I was told stories of sorcerors and magic when I was very young, but I do not know much about either, I'm afraid." remarked Arielle, as she used a hand to push some of her long, brown hair aside during her conversation. "Hmm." started another female voice. "Nor do I. I've heard even less than you." said Chandra, Arielle's new friend and ally. Her light brown tunic was neat, and her long red hair tied in a ponytail behind her back, hanging over her bow and quiver. "Then I wonder why it was necessary for us to come here?" asked Arielle, a little confused over this mission that Cyrada had sent everyone on a short time ago.
Chandra shrugged. "You tell me. You know the man much better than I." she remarked, also confused. Arielle stared blankly at the large wooden door in the stone wall room they stood in, without a reply. The two women were sent here to speak with the regent about the whereabouts of a tome that was of some importance to the old man. "All I know is that a messenger sent word to Cyrada about this book, and the next day, he sent us all out in search for it." she said. "It seems important to him, and he has never asked anything of me like this before." she finished.
"Good enough for me, then." said Chandra. Suddenly, the door began to creak, and it slowly opened. A middle aged man, slightly taller than them, with grey hair strode through the opening. He wore a purple and black tunic with a cape, and some gems strewn about the cape's holding chain. He closed the door behind him, then looked at the two women before him. "I am Regent Mondor of Carterria. How may I help you today?" he asked, his voice low and smooth. Chandra and Arielle both curtsied before they spoke. "I am Arielle, and this is Chandra. We were sent here by Cyrada of Naserria to help locate something called the Dragon Tome." she started. The Regent's eyes widened at the name, knowing what the book was.
"He said that you might have some information about it's location." she finished. The Regent pondered for a quick second before responding. "Sorry. I haven't heard of it." he said, carefully. Arielle looked confused again. "But he was sure that you knew about it." she replied. The Regent fiddled with his cape chain as he spoke. "I cannot help you. Sorry. If that is all?" he said. Both women looked at each other and shrugged. "Very well." said Chandra. "Thank you for your time, Regent." she said, before they both turned and walked out of the room via the door they came from. As soon as they left the room, the Regent quickly opened his door.
"Summon the guards." he started to someone in thenext room. "I want them captured immediately." he finished, before closing the door again. He stood in the empty meeting room and pondered things, before stroking his chin. "Events have moved more quickly than I anticipated." he muttered to himself. He knew that once he had the two of them imprisoned that there was no going back. "This can only end one way." he muttered, before heading to the other door and leaving the room.




If anyone likes this, I'd be happy to share the web address in PM where you can find the whole story, and many more.
