Red Lettering

Stories will not be written easily. A story without a heart is dead, and the only place it will get a heart is from the author.

    /This is a snippet of before a story that I am planing on writing. so enjoy/

    Dragons of all shapes and sizes flooded the sky, all flying
    toward the west. One dragon remand on the ground, waiting. Another dragon ran up panting.
    “Kitra!” the young dragon yelled at the top of her lungs, before falling into Kitra arms and sobbing.
    “They told me you were leaving” she sobbed “is it true.”
    ”yes” Katra said close to tears herself.
    “I brought some thing for you” Mya said pulling something out of her shirt.
    Katra gasped “were did you find /that/”
    “It was in your cave, just ware you left it”
    “Katra!” one of the other dragons shouted.” Its time to go”
    “Okay Vail.” She shouted back, she kissed Mya on the top of the head then quickly flew away.

    Shoni wanted to comfort Ellie, but she was wearing her armor, and she knew that cold, hard, sharp metal was anything but comforting. But the little girl needed to be held. “Hush, don’t cry so dearie.” Shoni said, picking up the cloth bear, abandoned on the ground. Ellie gave a sob and flung herself into Shoni’s arms. “Oh,” Shoni
    said, swallowing. “Hey, hey, shhh.” Placing her gauntleted hand awkwardly on the child’s back, she carefully stood. “Sir,” she said, catching the captain’s attention, “The child will ride with me.” For a moment he looked as if he would argue, but a fresh tear slid down Ellie’s cheek. He stepped forward and his face softened. He smiled and ran his clawed fingers gently through Ellie’s hair. “Aye, if you wish it.” “Thank you, sir.” Shoni turned and set Ellie into the saddle of her mount, then climbed up herself. “Why did they kill mum?” Ellie whispered. “Oh. Honey,” Shoni felt as if her heart would turn into ash. “The humans here fear the half-elves.” “Why?” “Because, in the old wars, the elves were ruthless killers. The humans cannot forget, and so we must suffer for the wrongs of our forefathers.

      Oops, two adjectives in one sentence. Oh dear.

    • Ooh, I like this story. So many people these days have everyone hate the humans because they were the ruthless killers, and while you can find elves as those that people hate, it’s rare that they’re called a race of murderers.
      One thing I would suggest is line breaks wherever a new person starts talking. It’s less confusing, and easier on the eyes. 🙂 (Though, judging by your previous comments, you may be on a mobile device, and those things are most difficult to write on. :p)

I love hearing your comments. Please add to the discussion! (It'd be awesome if you could keep the comments G Rated. Thanks. :p)
