I made it! I’m so proud! Especially because I’ll be continuing the story anyway, so I can keep updating with excerpts until the end of the month. The story has just been so much fun to explore, even without a set outline or idea of how I’ll wrap it all up.
For the excerpt, I’ll introduce one of the other kinds of fae to give Eral someone to contrast with. 😀
Eral drifted closer, glancing over the nearest surface of the crystal as a slow surge of green light swirled around pockets of blue. The dance of the lights could almost hypnotize him, he thought to himself, as he reached out a hand.
“I wouldn’t do that if I were you,” a voice startled him so badly he nearly dropped to the sloped stones below. Eral flinched back and looked around for the source of the voice before he realized that it wasn’t as loud as he’d have expected from one of the big folk.
Just as he thought that, he found him. A figure no taller than twelve inches stood on one of the curling vines made of gold that held up the giant crystal. He leaned his back against it, but it didn’t hide the long, silky blue flower petals that sprouted straight from his shoulders and formed a short cape. Swept back hair of soft periwinkle topped his head, and green lines traced over what was showing of his pale skin. He wore a fine tunic and slacks, both hemmed with delicate embroidery, especially the billowing sleeves cut to mimic the shape of the flower petals on his back.
