3WW

"An Age Old Tale"
First installment is here.

Krell swore an oath to himself. He would not give into her deceit nor indulge his own desires. It had been three shade cycles since he saw her last. He worried why she had stayed away. Had he been dumped?! The thought stung. Just then he saw her. Her scales glistened and her eyes, polished Khoal bore into him. She moved languidly as if world was hers for the taking. Reflexively his tail began to stiffen but he held his resolve.

"Trekia we must talk."

"Can't we talk afterwards?"

"There's not going to be an afterwards . We need to talk."

Krell climbed down from his post. He told her to recline. The dull ash on his scales and worried expression on his face told her something was wrong. She lowered herself and curled her tail around full rear.

He sighed and then he began.

Each week at 3WW, Thom assigns three words. This week we're to use deceit, indulge and oath. I won't leave folks hanging with this story. I'll tie it up in 3 no more than 4 installments. To read more submissions, go here.

A promise of much more here. Nicely done.

By the way, your 3ww link doesn't seem to be working.

Jeeves, do you mean last week was a nice start? lol First installment was last week. This week was a tease.

ThomG said...

This certainly builds on the first installment. This one is certainly a tease and I can't wait to see how you wrap this all up. I've got a hunch, but maybe not.

moving piece here.

Phew, is it a tease or is it a tactic? Certainly for the reader it is a tease - hopefully there's more to come!

Nicely thought out again.

It is a tease and leaves me wondering if they're not humans or humans aren't them

Witchmojo said...

Looking forward to finding out where this goes. You hooked me from the start.

You asked me what my username on Shelfari was. I'm pretty sure it's: Daniellle D. I spell my name with two ls, though, so I either made a typo or I did that on purpose. Don't remember.

I love the kohl eyes, and the flow of the scene. You're a natural with pace!

The dull skin aptly suggested life's dullness.

What is it? Will Krell ask if she will respect him in the morning? I can picture Meatloaf swapping parts with his female counterpart "... STOP RIGHT NOW....before we go any further..."

: )
