It’s #snippetsunday!

Hello! Welcomsnippetsunday2e to Snippet Sunday! It’s the weekly event when authors post 8 to 10 lines of things they are writing, editing, querying, or for which they’re obsessively checking sales figures! You can find the other snippets HERE.

This week I’m continuing with my fantasy WIP. In this scene, Kavi is rescued, but is it too late…

* * * *

Taking a knee, he reached in the semi-darkness for Kavi and touched an exposed bone. Gods! He jerked his hand away with a cry of disbelief. How many more victims were down there? With great effort he shut his mind to the horror of it, pulling Kavi’s limp body into his arms. Grief swept him and he pressed kisses to his cold face. “I’m here now,” he said brokenly. “I’m so sorry.”

He secured the rope around Kavi’s slim waist and tugged, and the men above lifted him with care. Nathan scrambled to follow when the rope was lowered back to him. Kavi looked ashen in the sunlight and Nathan knelt beside him, touching his face. “Wake up, darling,” he whispered. He could hear the struggle Kavi had with each shallow breath he drew. His spirit seemed to be far away on some journey of its own.

He looked up at the Magus hovering over them. “Can you help him?”

    Very effective– the imagery is strong and you hit the right emotional buttons too. Nice work.

  4. He seems to be in a pretty bad shape. For a moment, I even thought he was dead.

    Well done scene. I could feel the panic and then the worry that he wouldn’t be all right. I do hope he will be. 🙂
