Snippets of Story January '14

Hi!  I have just discovered another link-up with yet another author's blog.  This one is at Whisperings of the Pen with Katelyn Sabelko at http://www.katie-writingblog.blogspot.com/, and it is called "Snippets of Story".  Basically, you post several "snippets" of the project you are working on for other bloggers to read.  So here are a few from Dungeon:


Thirst was a laughable matter; losing one’s head was not. 
~Dungeon


The king coughed in surprise, nearly choking on his duck.  That was the last question he expected to hear from his daughter.
~Dungeon
 
“Sure, and the lad has been to see her every fortnight.  If he doesn’t ask for her hand by the end of the late harvest, then my name is not Rosie,” gossiped a middle-age woman with yellow hair tied in a large bun at the back of her head.  She sat on a bench by the table, busily mending a basket.
~Dungeon

For a moment, the princess did not move.  That man had looked terrifying.  The princess felt a delightful shiver of fear run down her spine.  He was exactly the sort of character that fit in with Hatach’s stories of dungeons, and it made her even more determined to explore the dungeon for herself.

“Are you…real?” poor Molly gasped.
The princess nodded.  “Quite real.”
~Dungeon


The princess found it odd that she was somehow responsible for a job that she knew nothing about and a drudgery maid she knew even less about.

He maintained the gallant bow until she disappeared from the room.  Then a glint came into his eyes.  “Stupid, stupid girl,” he whispered.  As soon as the sound of her steps faded away, he made his way in the opposite direction – to the depths of the dungeon.
