Yesterday was one of my children’s birthday. I had to wait till after the birthday stuff before I was able to write. Then I was able to kick out 1700 words exactly (the last few words were a struggle).
Today is a bit calmer so I am hoping to kick out a large amount. **crosses fingers**
NaNo Snip, Day 2
“My mother spent time here years ago. She left behind letters to old friends. I’m delivering them.” Zander said.
Valen stilled and Nadja’s eyes went wide.
“Who was your mother lad?” Valen’s voice was flat, eyes narrow.
“The Lady Myrna. And old friend of mine.” Master Ander’s bumped into Valen as he struggled with an overlarge crate, pushing it into Valen’s arms. “Put this on the head wagon.”
Nadja’s eyes had gone wide and she and Hayner exchanged stunned looks.
“Zander, come help me with these wagons over here.” Master Anders took his arm and forcefully guided him to the other wagons. He felt the eyes of the others on him.
“I forgot about that.” Master Anders muttered. “Valen…”
“He knew my mother.” Zander said flatly.
“Not entirely. I did warn you, she made friends and enemies.”
“Not an enemy.” Valen interrupted. The man stared at Zander then glanced at Anders. “You are not your mother.” He extended a hand out. “There are others who will not be so amiable.”
