Sought After Blood Lines – Excerpt V

From Chapter 2 – Traces

*This excerpt is from the first draft of Book 1. It has since undergone nearly
a dozen rounds of editing/revision, so the final form is a bit different.

Vyvianna awoke to a mended dress at the foot of her bed. She picked it up and noticed new fabric was stitched over the rip she had made. Enide was sleeping on the rocking chair. Vyvianna put it on and pocketed a small knife. When she walked to the door, Enide woke up.

“It would be best if you stayed home today.”

“I can’t just keep myself hidden.”

“Just for today, dear. Please.”

“I have to deflect them or any others. Thank you for fixing my dress.” Vyvianna kissed her mother on the cheek and left.

She headed towards The Eternal Wood, made sure no one was around, and made a small cut on the palm of her hand, letting the blood drip as she walked between the everalde trees.

  1. Okay… I’ll stop making so many comments, but I just couldn’t resist this one: Of course, again, the text is lusciously teasing, but my God! The artwork accompanying your excerpt is so, so very inviting! I love it; who’s responsible for this piece?
