Saturday Snippet

I've decided to start blogging more regularly. I may not blog daily, but I will try. It'll mostly be short posts, and probably mostly memes, but I am going to post more regularly. ^_^

Without further ado, here's a snippet from my current WIP (work-in-progress): Elika's Story (tentative title). The work, and, therefore, this snippet, begin with Elika's point of view (or POV).

Warning: Raw and unedited.

Elika pushed through the undergrowth, hoping this clearing would be the one. Being so far from the village made her nervous, but the usual supplies of [Shadow Weed] were already decimated. This latest outbreak approached the three week mark. As the only herb useful in keeping [Darkening] at , [Shadow Weed} is in high demand.

Still. The forest scared her, so still. A loud bird call, then silence.

Too much silence; she heard roots leave the ground as she worked. Most herbal infusions required just the flower or just the stem. This one required the entire plant.

Elika's hands started shaking seconds before she heard a raspy intake of breath. The predator stalking the forest had found her.
