Do You Know What Day it Is?

Hump day?

No, silly camel. WIPpet Wednesday. Mine is sort and sweet as I have ten minutes before I have to take dogs out and then get my butt off to the dayjob. I promise a catch-up post one of these days. Maybe part of Fictional Friday.

Anyhow, for the second of July, two paragraphs from the nonWIP WIP that everyone seems to be enjoying. Continuing right on from where we left off last week with Dachus putting his foot in…well…several things. You can read the excerpt here, I’ve also given you the last bit  of it prior to this weeks offering, just to give you the roll-in…

Dachus snorted. “You can’t be a Dracon Master, you’re a –“

She arched a dark, slender brow at him and leaned back against the dragon’s upper shoulder, arms folded across her chest. And the beast — Dachus swore it chuckled at him.

He cleared his throat and brushed imaginary lint from his brocade doublet. “What I mean is, I didn’t realize the Dracon Court accepted half–“

The woman’s eyes narrowed, and the dragon’s head angled toward Dachus, lips pulling back just enough to reveal a hint of tooth.


Have a great Fourth of July holiday if you’re in the states, and an otherwise grand week if you’re not. 🙂

  1. Dig up, Dachus, up! Nope, he’s just going to keep digging himself further into that hole, isn’t he? This made me literally laugh out loud.

  2. I like that he thinks the dragon is laughing at him. He kind of deserves it. Okay, he *really* deserves it.

  3. Oh my word. He keeps putting his foot in his mouth. And if he keeps talking, his foot may be in the dragon’s mouth.

  4. Someone needs to duct tape is mouth shut fast! lol He keeps digging himself a deeper grave.

  5. Dachus just keeps stepping in deeper, doesn’t he?

  6. Good lordy, but this boy knows how to put his foot in it! Hey, Dachus, do you NOT see that huge dragon within flaming distance?!

    I like this more and more as you tease us and give us just a wee little bit more each week. And I’ll admit, I hadn’t thought Dachus was the brocade type.

    And with that, my comment is almost longer than your WIPpet! =)

  7. Another great excerpt Kathi. Dachus is just digging himself a deeper and deeper hole really, isn’t he? 🙂

  8. Half what? I’m as amused as everyone else is regarding Dachus foot-in-mouth syndrome, but I want to know of what this woman is half!

  9. I agree with ReGi! Half what??

    I almost feel sorry for Dachus. Almost.

  10. hahaha, foot-in-mouth syndrome, love it. At least he’s smart enough to realize it is NOT a good thing to piss off a dragon, and several attempts to say the wrong thing is at least trying to, you know, say the right thing.
