Last week I posted an intense excerpt from Tangle of Need. This week, I've got a fun piece that takes place during a meeting of the senior soldiers.
I hope you enjoy! (Less than a month to go till release day!)
Excerpt from Tangle of Need
“Okay, now that that’s sorted,” Elias said, glancing once again at the board on which he’d scribbled his notes. “We need to talk about—”
“Hey, Eli,” Kieran interrupted, gray-green eyes wicked with mischief. “Is that one of those scratch-and-write boards they use at elementary school?”
“What?” Unfazed, Elias continued to write on the pink slate. “You just noticed?”
Adria laughed, wondering if Sakura had given the board to her father. From beside her, Simran said, “I think it’s great.”
“You’re a girl,” Kieran pointed out. “It’s pink. Manly men spit on pink.”
Roundly booed by the females in the room, Kieran threw out his arms. “Hey, hey, I like girls.” Pure charm. “A lot.”
“Quiet,” Elias said in his no-nonsense way, “or we’ll be here all day. Next thing we need to sort out are some new training modules. We now have a climber with Level 4 certification in the group, so she’ll be doing a lesson tomorrow for those of you who climb like bears after hibernation.”
It took Adria a second—and Elias’s amused look—to realize she’d been volunteered.
