Polished off another 1100 words today. The new chapter thirteen is complete.
In this one, Ursula spends the afternoon alternating between being in fear of her life and worried for her mistress. Though the army left the farmstead with no bloodshed, she knows it was a mighty close thing. Night falls and the army is finally called to a halt, hasty arrangements are made for sleeping, but Azrael does not come to her body slaves. That furthers Ursula’s angst.
In the second half, Azrael approaches in the wee hours of the morn. She’s still wracking her brain in an effort to understand where the sudden urge to mutilate the innocent farm boy came from. She knows that Midia holds strong influence over her by the sheer number of years they’ve been together. But what is it about Ursula? She’s only been there about three weeks and she already holds quite a bit of sway. More angst for our stoic and aloof leader.
I should write a book. Character Torturing for Fun and Profit!
