I kinda forgot to do one last night? Oops. But I did some writing, like 1100 words or so. Honestly it’s neat I got that much considering I got a new pokemon game to play. Yeah. I’ll do yesterday’s excerpt and today’s, so you get a double.

Excerpt 1:

“Can she even tell I’m here?” Eral called to Elias, who was making his way along the length of the prostrate serpent to rejoin them.

Elias patted Gladys’ side. “Yeah, she knows,” he replied. “She doesn’t see like most would, but she can tell you’re there.”

To confirm what he said, one of the feelers actually approached at last. Eral tensed, but it paused an inch away from his chest. He could hardly believe the accuracy.

Then she poked him right in the chest and her feeler darted back. The ground rumbled slightly as a rhythmic wheeze shook through the giant serpent. She was laughing.

Excerpt 2:

“No wind for me today, Gladys,” Elias shouted, pushing shakily to his feet. “I forgot to explain, but I can do that after you eat. I promise. For now, I’m gonna need you to keep part of you over the water for us until you can surface again. Can you do that for me, sweetheart?”

Gladys made a few trills of surprise. Then, Yes. Elias. Careful. Fae sharks.

“You got it,” he said. Then, he went to Joleth, who was trying to hang on. “We gotta run to the back of her. She’s gonna go under.”
