Friday Fiction – snippet about dragons

I’ve been so busy the last couple of weeks that I haven’t had time to write as much as I would have wanted.

Sadly, that means I do NOT have a completed flash fiction ready to post. I just don’t have the energy for it.

HOWEVER, that doesn’t mean I didn’t write anything. I have a little snippet – about 100-ish words – of something that could end up as a short story of a few thousand words. Even though it’s not a complete story, I hope you enjoy it. I think it’s got interesting potential, even though there’s not much there yet.

Tanner stepped out of the stone house and lifted a muscled arm to shield his eyes. “They aren’t supposed to be here. What happened at Setdom?” He wiped his hands on his pants, leaving sweaty stains on the sueded leather. “They’ll be calling for the riders. I better get ready.” He ducked back through the arched doorway, leaving me alone to follow the descent of the giant creatures.
