Weekend Writing Warriors #SundaySnippet - 'Dancing With Fate' - ..."Come on, you know you want to."



Hi fellow  Snippeteers and readers.  Welcome to  my Weekend Warriors post. I'm continuing this week with another snippet from my fantasy novella, Dancing With Fate. Thank you to everyone who's been following my snippets so far. Don't forget to visit the other authors at the link above and also below this post, there's something for all tastes.

Last time:

Terpsichore, muse of dance, was given a new mission by Apollo, to restore joy and the love of dancing to the Celts of 5th Century Wales. Now she has completed her task and looks forward to returning  to Olympus, but then her annoying brother turns up. (As usual, some creative editing of punctuation and slight variation from published version to comply with 10 sentence rule)



SNIPPET


All at once, the purity of the day seemed tainted -- how had he found her, was it he who had eavesdropped upon her conversation with Apollo? She sighed,somehow, she did not think so, Dionysus in his state of permanent intoxication could hardly have moved so stealthily, nor concealed his retinue of women followers.

Dionysus hiccupped loudly, causing the vines around his neck to bounce and rustle, again, he held out the goblet of wine. "Oh, we are 'Miss Prim and Proper' today, aren't we - come on, lighten up, take a sip, it won't hurt you." He learned toward her, his handsome, if somewhat effeminate features wearing an innocent expression that belied the glint in his blue eyes. "After all, you wouldn't want to upset your brother, would you?"


Terpsichore refrained from commenting that he was, in fact, only one of her many half-brothers. She pursed her lips, reached for the goblet and took a small sip, before handing it back, it did not do to offend the god --"thank you, now I really must be leaving." 

His smile was more of a smirk, "all right, I can take a hint; if I were you, I'd have a good long soak in that pool before you go -- go on, you know you want to." 


BLURB
(Cover by Miss Mae)
When Terpsichore, the Muse of Dance, is assigned to revisit the land of Wales, her task seems simple enough. She is unaware there is a hidden agenda. Before she can return to Olympus her path crosses that of the mysterious Myrddin, and her heart is lost. But Myrddin is promised to another. His mind is set on the dangerous task that lies before him, and the woman he has sworn to save. Nevertheless, he cannot deny the growing attraction between him and the beautiful stranger he meets along the way. 



 Terpsichore and Myrddin face a deadly force that threatens to part them forever. Is she destined to lose the only man she has ever truly loved? Is there nothing she can do to save him? Finally, when all seems lost, in desperation she finds herself DANCING WITH FATE.
