Pulling again from my NaNoWriMo story, Night Shift. The previous excerpts are here and here. The male main character, Kazimir, is explaining to the female main character, (and POV character) Devorah, and the angel Adrael what his plan is—to trap the demon Thaumiel. This is still pretty early in the story. When Adrael asks Kazimir why he wants to involve Devorah in something so dangerous, Kazimir replies that Thaumiel was the one who ordered Devorah’s father to be murdered. Kaz is the first speaker.
The imaginative participants at Weekend Writing Warriors will show you snippets of romances, breakups, fantasy lands, cities on other planets, lands far back in Earth's history and some far in our future. I'm pretty picky about the stuff I read and I've found lots of stories I can't wait to read more of!“Dev’s been pretty active and outspoken herself so if he thinks she’s continuing her father’s efforts, he’ll be itching to get her too.”Adrael’s eyes narrowed and his whole form wavered faintly, like fog moving on water.Kazimir set both fists on his hips and glared back; I shivered.“Are you saying what I think you are?” said a voice that sounded like mine but from far away.Kazimir’s eyes bounced from the angel to me and back. He rubbed his hands together slowly and approached me one step at a time; I backed up.“Dear Devorah, if Thaumiel considers you a prize worth having, he’ll come after you. My friends and I will be there to protect you, all you have to do is show up at a certain place and time. You’d be the proverbial carrot on a stick, always out of reach.”
