Here is another little unedited snippet from my current writing-in-progress! A short scene from Chapter 10 of “Varkens of Ailenor:
“How is she doing?” Grimwald asked. He stood in the rotunda with only the True King and the Varken of Ailenor.
“Well enough, but she still has a lot to learn,” Heath-Varken answered. “Mentally, physically, emotionally. She has a lot to untangle before she’ll be ready.”
“But you think she is the right choice? That she will be ready when the time comes?” Galen asked earnestly.
“That’s completely up to her,” the Varken said. “We’ll see how strong her resolve is.”
