I have recently joined the StoryFire app created by Jesse Ridgeway and Brian Spitz. StoryFire is a group and solo storytelling platform. I thought it would be fun to write some flash fiction on the app to interact with my readers and get to read their work too. This scene below is my first story on there. You can download the app from Apple or the Google store. Stay lit! 🙂
Author’s Note: This additional scene takes place during Chapter 24 of Mistress of Agony (Iron of the Innocent, Volume 2). These characters do not appear in the novel. Spoiler warning! I recommend reading this after you read that chapter. Click below being fully informed.
City of Clendon
Characters: Evtaf, Linsei, and Mersius
Stone and mortar, the city wall was a heavy barrier against the danger beyond. It was wide enough to walk and fight. Its edifice tall enough to keep out the unwanted, and its parapets designed to protect those willing to die to keep it secure.
Three soldiers assigned on the east side for their duty shift stood their post. The night felt tense, and the black, threatening clouds came closer. One of the soldiers sniffed the air and rubbed his face. Rain was coming, and the thought made him feel even more miserable. He grumbled to himself.
