Howdy and welcome to this week’s sci-fi fantasy blog hop snippet, where speculative writer’s are sharing snippets of their work. This week I am carrying on with Sam and Fin in The Brinded Cat – she gave in and has gone to rescue the widow McGinty’s familiar from a tree:
I scowled at Fin where he stood deep in conversation with Mrs McGinty. The pine tree was frigging huge. It belonged on the side of a mountain. He gestured at the ladder pressed against the trunk and then went back to flirting.
Mrs McGinty was pretending I wasn’t there. That was normal. She was a witch and I was a Community leper. She tipped her head back and laughed at one of Fin’s jokes. The sun glinted off the chestnut curls she had tightly packed on top of her head as she touched a hand to her delicate throat.
It was all I could do not to stick my tongue out at her.
