That Odd Fantasy Story

That fantasy challenge from over the summer is still hanging around. It's moving slower, but it's still there and growing as time goes on. This story isn't an epic fantasy. No, it's focused very much on the leading lady and, if I may, said "To hell with the rest of the world!"

The Mistaken Saga currently has four parts and a well defined heroine. It's almost halfway through the story as I know it and I thought I'd throw out a little teaser to see how it's going. This is a dance scene in the second part of the story. Dalia is rescued by the rouge!


The knight wasn’t going to move.
Spinning and kicking her leg high, Dalia hid her distress behind the flourish of her skirts. She knew once her leg came down and she bent low her dance partner wouldn’t be there to pull her into the delicate tug of war. As she bent her hand went back and she tried to race through the options to alter the dance.
And then on the upswing Dalia was saved. A strong hand took hers firmly and pulled her up into the next flourish. At first she was blessing Jojo for finally snapping out of his stupor, but when she was pulled flush against the hard body of her dance partner she was suddenly eye to eye with Sanderwise.
“I got you,” Sands whispered, taking the led into the next set of spins and dips. He’d thrown off his dark star covered cap and had found a new mask to hide his face. If Dalia didn’t know better she wouldn’t recognize him as the magic performer. Now, as his hands slide over her waist and up her arm, he was her dance partner.
Dalia’s heart skipped a beat as Sands pulled her into another tight press. A twirl followed and then he dipped her low. Mischief sparkled in his blue eyes and a grin spread across his lips.
Suddenly another hand took hold of hers and Dalia was pulled away from Sands. She twirled under the knight’s arm and the original dance was back in step.

That's the Tuesday Teaser! Let me know what you think and we'll get this story rolling again!

Peace and Love
