Wrote 3000 words of Gryphon Precinct
, bringing me to the end of Chapter 10, which includes a bunch of Danthres backstory. I'm now at 28,700 words.
This frees me to go to the dojo tonight with a clear conscience -- I'm only letting myself go if I make a decent word count for the day -- which makes me happy. First, though, walking the dog and lunch...........
An excerpt from today's output, in which Danthres and Torin are waking up after a night in bed together:
"You look pensive," she muttered.
"Just remembering the first time we did this eight years ago."
She grinned. It was a playful grin, and Torin was fairly certain that he was the only one who ever saw it. "Ah, yes, when you took advantage of my exhaustion to ravage me."
"As I recall," he said with a mock frown, "you took advantage of my fatigue."
She sat up next to him, back against the headboard, breasts bouncing enticingly as she settled into that position. Torin was on his side, propped up by his left elbow.
Torin continued. "What I do remember clearly was what you said the following morning."
Danthres chuckled and quoted herself. "'This will never ever happen again, and if you mention it to anyone, I will run you through!'"
"I think you threatened to snap my neck, actually, but either way, the sentiment was assuredly homicidal should I consider the possibility of us ever again sleeping together—or of my discussing it."
