I've been sharing from my current WIP Book 2 of my Illuminati series, The Tree of Life. This week mommy dearest, Isis is here and you will see two sides of her. You will also see how the family feels about another member of the family, Hassidim, for lack of a better desciption, Luc's self-appointed valet! He's a favorite with many readers from book 1. BEWARE creative punctuation to meet sentence guidelines ahead.... Also, a friend's raffle copter shared below for some free gcs and reads.
“There is little I can say to defend my lack of rest, you’re right; I’ve been driven beyond reason, and beyond rest, but thank you for healing my exhaustion, both mental and physical, mother.”
“What mother would do less for her child,” Isis said tenderly.
Quite apparently summoned by Isis, both by the timing of her arrival and the way Isis paused and glanced at the door, Nalini entered.
“Ah, and now you must eat, my little flower,” Isis said.
“Hassidim is here and has been overseeing things because he fears you have not been taken care of properly and cook has prepared your favorite foods to tempt you, Kirin,” Nalini confirmed.
“Hassidim is here?” Kirin laughed, and clapped her hands as she glanced at Luc, chuckled and said, “Oh, he will hate your housing facilities, but oh well, there is no hope for it then for I must obey. Thankfully, I am starving.”
The door closed with a solid metallic thud behind the two women and Isis nearly hissed, “Anubis,” and nodded to her son, “hold the woman still. Help him, Ljluka,” she commanded, using the true form of her sons’ names.
I hope you enjoyed this week's snippet! I am off to run my first race in AZ! Yikes! Be sure to visit the other fine Weekend Writing Warriors and Snippet Sunday authors! And enter to win the GC and other prizes on my friend's giveaway below!
