Crooked : Part Two (Friday Fiction)

This week's Friday Fiction is hosted by Vonnie @ her blog, My Back Door. Click here to read and share more great fiction!

Author's Ramblings: Well, I sorta took a hint from last week and continued on a bit with my character sketch, but somehow two new knights popped up and all this business about a dragon. *sigh* I have no idea where it's going, but I'll try NOT to make a serial out of it. LOL. The style's slightly different from last week! More chattering instead of description. ^_^ Thanks for reading and have a great weekend! Comments are very  much appreciated!

They arrived in Dockweid with a few hours to spare before daylight. The Princess Violet had taken up a solemn silence as she rode upon her royal white steed, her head bent over the giant book that now went with her everywhere.

The Knight hardly caught sight of her face with her thick, honey-brown hair hiding her face and most of the book as she diligently kept her attention on the book below. Whether this was partially his own fault or her own preference, the Knight did not bother to puzzle. He was glad for the companionship of his knight-friend, a red-headed Dragonslayer who had offered him an assistant position in tackling his next quest.

The wages promised were suitable enough and so he'd gladly welcomed the company as the journey had continued. He'd had enough of confusing thought for the morning where the princess had stubbornly insisted her horse was a cat.


He shook his head with a grimace. He didn't want to think about that now. It was too much of a headache, if he had to ride all the way to Dockwied with such thoughts in his head, it would have been too much.

Thank you for reading this excerpt!

@Vonnie, Thanks! I'm glad the character sketches have turned out this well. Don't worry, I won't quit it without mentioning The Book. :P

@Cat, LOL. Really? I'm still open to suggestion at this point...LOL. Thanks for reading! ^_^
