Things To Watch
As promised, I did try to get some video of lamb antics for you. Really I did. But, of course, when the opportunity came to film them in all their glory, they were less than cooperative. This ewe lamb has decided she’s my pal and typically follows me around while I’m doing chores. She made an effort to get her siblings to join in some lamb games for me, but to no avail. Just picture six of her friends all doing the same thing she is but at a high rate of speed.
This week’s WIPpet: 18 sentences plus a few bonus lines for the month, and because it just ended better that way. No context. I don’t think it’s needed. Just a reminder that the Needles are an assassin guild. THE assassin guild. Highly feared, highly effective.
“You don’t get it,” Roe said, shoving a shirt into the sack she’d grabbed to pack Fader’s things. “The Needles are watching you.”
“Even as I watch them.”
She paused in her packing to flick him a raised brow appraisal. “Right. Of course you do.” She pulled the cork on a bottle and sniffed its contents. Brandy. She took a swallow before recorking it and tucking it in next to the shirt. “You have to leave. Now.”
Roe turned to grab the remainder of the bread and stuff it into his pack. Fader reached past her to remove it and set it back on the table. Roe growled and made another grab for it, but he pushed her hand away so she scoured about for any other necessities he might need.
“Don’t you have any weapons?”
“I have no need of weapons,” he said. “And I am sworn never to bare steel against my fellow man.”
Roe blinked at him. “You’re what?” She waved the question away before he had a chance to answer. “Never mind. Doesn’t matter. You’ll never see it coming anyhow.”
Not much else to report this week so I’ll let you go with that. Have a great rest of your week now that (at least in some places) Spring is trying to make an appearance. (Although we were back below freezing again this morning.)
