Snippet from the WIP

Since I missed to post a snippet on Wednesday, you are getting a sneak peek at the currently untitled WIP.  This is rough and riddled with typos, but I hope you enjoy it!


I looked up when the doorbell chimed.  The greeting on the tip of my tongue died when I saw the man standing in the doorway.  Cian. What in the name of the ancestors was he doing here?  I blushed when I remembered the hot fling we had before the mess with Tony happened.

“ Cian? What are you doing here?”

“ I was about to ask you the same question. When I came to visit you the next day, you were gone.”

I winced.

“I had an argument with my brother and decided to leave town for a while.”

It was the truth, yet it was simplifying things a lot.  I was a Portal Justicar,  albeit a relatively new one.  My brother was a high-ranking member of the Rookery, the biggest criminal organisation in this realm, if not all the seven realms.  So it wasn’t surprising that when he found out that I worked for the Portal Justicars he was furious.  In fact, he had been so angry that my boss had decided that  it was best to hide somewhere far away.  And this village in the northwestern corner of Kanida was as far away as you could travel.  The fact that a group of dwarves had just relocated here was just a co-incidence.
