Tonight is an early WIPpet Wednesday. I am really plowing into and through this Modern Muses story. I am not sure I will keep the title, but for know it works.
WIPpet Wednesday is the brain child of K. L. Schwengel, writer, blogger, and photog of sheep and various wildlife. Rules are this, take your WIP and select a snippet from it to share, using the day's date to connect back to the WIP. Today's date is 8/26 (a little early). The math I will use is 8+2+6=16 lines from Modern Muses. I have shown you Teri and Thalos. This week is Mel's turn. This is going back to back arriving at Mel's "friends" house. This is when we meet Mel. Also go visit my fellow WIPpeteer here!
“Hey Hey,” a voice called from the heavens and suddenly someone appeared, while the crowds of people pushed past the two muses. Thalos couldn’t tell if it was a male or female he was seeing in front of them. The figure had short dark hair and dyed a bright shade of blue and a jovial smile as he came up to Thalos. “Talo, sup my man?” laying some skin on Thalos’ now open hand.
“Uh, nothing.” He was trying to remember who this was. They were short, barely adult size, but that meant nothing to an immortal. The eyes were quick and shifty, but they were smiling too.
“Don’t remember me do ya?”
Thalos shrugged and tried to play it cool. “It’s been a while. Been busy.” Teri laughed suddenly, a short bark that belied that Thalos was lying, if only slightly.
“No, not really. You look awfully familiar though.”
