Here’s another short-‘n-sweet #1lineWed post. The theme is challenge. This comes from Keeping House, novel two in the Appalachian Elementals series and one of my current WIPs.
This place creeps me out. Cent stared past Dane to the shelving lining the back of the hall. Twenty-nine skulls, most of them damaged. Twenty-nine… Stowne had told her they were Dane’s challengers, those who’d vied for her position & lost, but Cent now remembered this was incorrect. These were the skulls of the past Hunter kings, all carried from Scotland to be honored. Dane was the thirtieth king so, by Cent’s estimate, there was room for twenty more skulls on the shelves. Damn, these people have some weird traditions.
