WeWriWa - I didn't drink it all...

Now I wake me up from sleep, and pray for many blogs to sweep, and I should find great things to read, I k know my times spent well indeed!  Happy Sunday and a glorious Weekend Writing Warrior day to you : )  Pray tell on this blessed day, if you have no knowledge of the marvels of WeWriWa you should click the link.  It will take you to a most holy shrine filled with illuminating knowledge on the workings of this glorious tribe of scribes.

Last week, I left you with Lareina accusing Ravyn of drinking all the wine in a most disapproving motherly fashion...    

Ravyn started to chuckle, “I didn’t drink it.”
“Oh,” she blushed.  “Did I drink all that wine?  I remember sipping a little, but I swear I didn’t…oh my, and here I am lecturing you.”
Ravyn shook her head, “No, we had a guest.”
Lareina shrank back.  “The Mara?  Was that the gift it accepted?”

  1. Mom's a bit embarrassed here, but at least she does remember the Mara. Good 8.

  4. LOL Hum, by mom's reaction I'd say she might have drunk all the wine some other time. Great snippet!

    1. She was just very upset about going to sleep the night before, and Ravyn had asked her to drink a bit to calm her nerves.

  7. Had a chuckle that the mother wasn't so sure if she'd drank the wine. Hmm... has she done so in the past? Enjoyed the snippet.

    1. She was very stressed the evening before. I think there's plenty of us who've done that before, had a little too much to drink trying to hide from our stressors.

  8. "Did I drink all that...?" Oh boy! I can sooo relate to that confusion :)

    1. Why thank you. I never know what's going to spring from my brain as I get my post ready. I get tired of the same-o intro, so I try to add a little flair : )

  13. I love this 8!!! Somebodies...had a great night. And if you can't remember whether or not you drunk it all, that's a tell-tale sign in itself. LOL!

    1. She really didn't drink it all...if you go back a few posts, you'll meet a very funny little man named His Nibs...who might've had more than a wee sip : )

    1. She sort of slept through the evenings activity...

  15. Does this mean the Mara is going to come back, once it ditches His Nibs? Or will his Drunken Lordship take care of that? :)

    1. His Nibs sealed a deal with the Mara to leave them alone...so they should be okay : )

  16. I guess the wine was good if the Mara took it. Will it come back or not?

    1. Ah, His Nibs took it. If you go back a few weeks you'll see what kind of fun went on while Lareina slept : )

  17. Ladies do not guzzle wine. People like His Nibs, however... clearly can't be bound to manners or convention.

    1. His Nibs...well it's almost a character trait for him. He canna help himself one wee bit!
