Tales of The Forbidden – Rewrite, Short Snippet


Hello everyone!

As drawn by the wonderful "BlueSoulber" on deviantArt.

Saria, as drawn by the wonderful “BlueSoulber” on deviantArt.

On Friday, I didn’t have any new writing to share with all of you and thus, I didn’t post my semi-regular Friday Snippets. Because of this and the fact that I did write 1,050 words yesterday, I decided to share a short snippet today. This snippet comes from the start of the rewrite of Tales of The Forbidden.

Disclaimer: This comes from a draft and thus has not yet been edited. Mistakes are possible.

“Saria, let them go.” A voice penetrated her mind. “Release them, Saria. Release them now!”

The pain-induced fog cleared and the meaning crashed into her mind. Saria closed her eyes and succumbed to the blackness. The fire’s wrath dulled and she sought out the essence. It was close, flaring wildly and shifting colors as it tortured her. Yellow, blue, green; the ball of light turned crimson as a fresh ache washed over her. She cringed and reached out until she felt the magic, felt it swell at her touch. She released it. White.

Her pain vanished and energy left her. She opened her eyes.

Feel free to let me know in the comments what you think; I love hearing from you! That aside, I hope you’ve had a fantastic weekend so far and that your Sunday will be even better!

I'm a writer, reader, gamer and a dreamer. I love losing myself to thought and considering possibilities. That is how I create my stories and weave the erratic tales into readable ones.

  1. Interesting. I like the idea of associating magic with colours. Nice snippet.

  2. I like it, of course. Looking forward to the changes!
