Snippet Thursday – Saoirse’s Folly

#SnippetThursday #SaoirsesFolly

Gripping the vial tight in her fist, she walked back out to the kitchen. Seamus had started the kettle for tea, almost as if this were a normal visit. Saoirse placed the vial on the table, mended after her struggle with Dermot.

He picked it up and held it to the light. “This is it? It looks… angry.”

“Appropriate, don’t you think?”

“Well, there’s not much to wait for, is there?” He pulled out the cork but she put a hand on his arm before he could drink it.

“At least wait for tea. In case you need something to wash it down.”

He flashed her a half-grin. “Sure. As if that will make any difference if it’s deadly, right?”

Frowning, she glared at the vial. “This is a terrible idea, isn’t it? What if I kill you?”

“I’d rather that than suicide. Suicide is a mortal sin. You can at least receive remission for murder after the fact.”

Celtic Fairies, Fables, and Folklore! Bestselling author (top #100 Amazon Canada, #1 in Paranormal Fantasy, Amazon Canada) Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with 'A', and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels. Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth. Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad. Facebook: Homepage: Blog: Twitter:
