A Thief’s Wager (15)- Priest and the Pauper

Welcome to the Weekend Writing Warriors Snippet Sunday! It is a weekly blog where writers post 8-10 sentences of their work. Make sure you visit the other participants once you’re finished here and discover something new to enjoy.

We left off last week with Chris witnessing Bayliss using a Mage’s own magic against them. We continue after Bayliss’s departure and Chris sneaking into the torture chamber. The Mage is chained against the wall and his once pristine robes are filthy. Under the blood and dirt, Chris spies a familiar face. We open with Chris speaking.

“Aren’t you the Mage priest from the cathedral?” The man nods. “Why is he doing this to you?”
“Every experiment needs a test subject,” the Mage coughs, spitting blood as he clears his throat,
“What’s he testing?”
“Did you see the ring he wore?” Chris nods, “he’s looking for a way to use our magic against us. I didn’t even think it was possible.” The man stares into the shadows wearing a grim expression. But a shutting of a door jars him to the present. “Go, damn prick, ensures I don’t die right away.”

Glad to see you all again and stay tuned for what happens next! Also, I am working on a new series of posts exploring the printing history behind some of my older books from my collection. So if that’s something you’re interested in then expect that in the near future. Have a great week everyone!

    Never good when someone finds a way to use something against you, especially in such a harmful way. Hope they can make it out alive!
