WeWriWa - ...but you're nothing but a liar.


For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I am thankful for each and every friend I have made on my weekly warrior adventure!  You all are fantastic committed folks that I am proud to know.  I fully appreciate the time you take to read and comment.  Follow the link to WeWriWa if you want to know more about this wonderful group of writer's and how to join. 

Last week, we left off with Ravyn telling Seamus that she is capable of using magic, and is safe from his seductive Selkie charms...



     A tear trickled down Seamus’s cheek, the look of betrayal cut Ravyn like a knife. “I truly love you,” he whispered, “but you’re nothing but a liar.”
     “You’re right,” Ravyn sighed, “I’ve lied to you from the start. I felt my reasons justified. But, I see there is no rationale in breaking your heart.”
      Murphy pushed away from the table, his chair scudding hard across the wooden plank floor. “Have your affections been false as well,” he growled at Lareina, his eyes stormy and dark.

In order for me to be off with my family on Thursday, I have to work today.  I will make my way through the list though, you can count on that.  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day my friends!

  1. Uh oh. Things aren't going too well, it seems...

    Great excerpt, Millie!

  2. Oh it sure seems that she is trying to harden herself against his affections, but hurting him so is getting to her, maybe she isn't quite so immune? I wonder what will happen to Lareina's relationship. This snippet definitely foretells of rough waters ahead. Great job.

  3. Uh-oh. This is awkward, but I hope it won't turn dangerous!

    Poor, poor Seamus!

    (This is awesome, Millie! :) )

    1. The men are frustrated and hurt, even a bit angry...but they are gentlemen.

  4. Oh no! Things were so happy and lighthearted, and now it's all gone terrible. What will Lareina say? Are things permanently broken for Ravyn and Seamus? Gripping stuff, Millie.

  5. "his eyes stormy and dark" -- that's such an awesome metaphor!

  6. I felt Ravyn's pain and Murphy's anger. Great job conveying their emotions. I was a little confused when you introduced Murphy. For me I thought 'what does Murphy have to do with this?' This is just my personal thought, that's all.

    1. They were in the scene not long ago... Remember these eight sentences at a time can make a few seconds of reading drag on for weeks on end : ). Read all together it's not confusing.

  8. Hmmm, if he truly loves her, there might be hope, but I can't help but wonder how real those tears are? Everyone here seems capable of subterfuge- which makes for very interesting fiction! Great snippet, Millie.

    1. He thinks he's in love, but she's the first woman he's really met...ever. He might not really know what love is...

    1. Maybe things will look up again...maybe.

  13. uh-oh...this isn't good. :( Very sad, but I'm glad she told the truth. Sadly, think things are about to get worse as Murphy is expecting to hear the truth as well.

    Happy Thanksgiving

    1. Sure they'll move forward, but together? Hmm, we'll have to wait to see how this plays out.

  15. Wow--what a job you do painting the scene for the reader, Millie. The chair "scudded". Eyes were "stormy and dark". I'm enjoying this story! :-) Have a happy Thanksgiving. :-)

  16. I'm enjoying the tension. The conversation flowed smoothly with body language. Someone has explaining to do!
