WeWriWa #8: Ena dreams of sushi...

Welcome friends to WeWriWa and the snippets o' eight.  I think this will be my last week to share on this scene...we've had so much fun with Ena, Ardan, Rowan and Ravyn!  

Last week, Ena teased Rowan about trying to use a shillelagh to attack a dragon.  If you've forgotten what happened last week, you can find it here!

Ena sniffed, insulted.  “Princess Ravyn is my friend.  I do not harm my friends.”
“Well then, do ye harm Princess Ravyn’s friends?” 
Ena smiled, her sharp teeth glittering in the afternoon sun.  “I had thought I’d get to try seafood,” she chuckled, “but I suppose I can have it another day.  I’ve never tried Selkie before.”

Ronan gulped and took a half step back.

    1. Hmm...I haven't decided if I'll post from Return of the Crown (already published) or give you a taste of something different from Zelera's revenge...

  10. Ena is such a character and I will miss seeing her in your snippets... but I'm also looking forward to new adventures ahead! She has such personality and you did a great job with the dialogue - thanks so much for these dragon episodes - I really enjoyed them! :)

    I hope you've had a good weekend - more wake-boarding?

  12. Perhaps he should take a whole step back. She has sharp teeth. :)

    1. He's scared but still brave...and these dragon's could've eaten him at any time if they'd wanted to. Thanks for stopping by!

  27. I'm really enjoying seeing things from the pov of the dragon, rather than through the eyes of humans or perhaps other creatures. And this dragon rocks, so even better!

  28. *Snicker* Seafood... Nothing like someone big enough to eat you threatening to do so. Best to watch your manners around dragons!

    1. Yup, she's got some serious self-restraint. If I'm near sushi...well, I can't say he'd have been safe if I was a dragon : )
