Third entry for the #8sunday Weekend Writing Warriors blog hop –
I bared my fangs and snarled, “Why did you betray your people, Devin?”
Devin was not a member of the Felidae branch of Therians. He was one of the Jackals and a shame to their long history of utter loyalty to the Therian way of life. He was also a lesser predator, which should have guaranteed me his cooperation once I entered the room and showed my power. Nevertheless, only madness reigned behind his eyes. “Stupid tigers only know how to follow orders. You think you’re protecting the Therians? You’re condemning them to obscurity!
The above is an excerpt from my WIP novella, Tiger’s Paw, the prequel to The Therian Way, my urban fantasy series. This time it ends in the middle of Devin’s spiel, which is why I don’t have a closing quotation mark. This entry is a direct continuation from last week’s, which you can read here.
