Six Sentence Sunday

Greetings!  I'm new to SSS, so bear with me.  This is an excerpt from a WIP called, Wings of Obsidian.  I'm only five chapters (about 13k words) in. 


             Lisandra nodded mutely and, as he shifted to dragon form, Thenios watched her visibly will herself to stand still.  He thought about having her climb atop him, but he feared that in her present state she would lose her grip and plummet to her death.  No, it would be safer to carry her down to the entries below.  She flinched when he closed his talons around her, her body shaking in fear, but made no move to fight back.
            “To Lilly,” she whispered over and over, a mantra so soft he almost didn’t hear it.
            “Yes, to Lilly.”  He voiced the reassurance just before he launched them off the ledge


Dragons who can take on human form?  Yeah, we've got that!  Hope you enjoyed this little glance into my world!  ~ D. F. Krieger 

PS- There is a link on the side to return to SSS and view the other AWESOME writers!
