Here’s the usual Sunday Six [click on the link to see other participating authors]. Taken from my WIP A Fierce Reaping set in Scotland and Northumbria in the 7th century AD, it follows on closely from last weeks. Cynfal and his friends have decided to provide an escort for their down to earth cavalry commander, Cynon. Cynon, while touched, can’t take the situation entirely seriously.
“Since you want me to be honoured I’ll need a cupbearer,” Cynon said. “March took a turn last time, Pup can’t do it until he learns not to giggle and Aeddan wouldn’t be able to resist dropping a good loud fart into a lull in conversation. Cynfal – what about you?”
“Why me?” Cynfal asked with a grin.
Cynon grinned too. “Apart from anything else, you’re about the cleanest.”
I’m trying to read everyone and comment, but I’m getting masses of ‘Service unavailable’ or timed out messages this week. Sorry, me dears. I do love you, really!
