Thursday Thirteen #8
13 First Lines of Chapters from Fiona O'Sithein
Which the rough draft of is FINISHED! *does a happy dance*
1. The princess of Sithein’s golden curls fell in front of her sapphire blue eyes as she sat spinning the jeweled dagger on the table.
2. The little girl shivered in fear and hid under the big bed when she heard the sound of footsteps nearing her door.
3. The night was still and so chilly that Arianna felt as if her nose should be growing a little icicle.
4. The next day Fiona was still weak and dizzy from losing so much blood.
5. “I’ll go and sleep in the great room,” he said turning to go, but when Beltran looked he could see the morning rays of sun already filtering through the shutters.
6. Fiona had no idea how many times they’d made love or what time of the day it was, but every inch of her body ached deliciously.
7. Beltran rolled up the portrait he’d been working on of the little girl and shoved it on the small shelf beneath his bed with all of his other pictures when he heard someone stop outside his door and knock.
8. Beltran needed her then, safe and warm and in his arms where she couldn’t get herself into anymore trouble.
9. Fiona was torn from sleep by a knock at the door of the bedroom.
10. Fiona looked around for something edible, but all that was left was a very stale crust of bread, which seemed to have already fed some mice.
11. Beltran stared at the door to Fiona’s bedroom behind which she had just disappeared.
12. Beltran lay with Fiona tucked close against his side watching the lantern light dance on the ceiling above his head.
13. Fiona sat up straight in the chair they’d offered her doing everything she could to look like a noble dragon princess despite what had happened last night.
