Running a bit late with this one this week…
This week’s WIP snippet is from Winter Duet. I’ve finally finished edits, and giving the story one final read through before formatting.
“They knew exactly where they were going,” Michel said once they were clear. “I would have expected them to be at least looking around if they were involved in a manhunt.”
“Perhaps Reiniger has given up and is moving out?” Ken suggested. “If he’s found who or what he’s looking for…” He shuddered. “I’m going to ignore that. After all, he hasn’t found us, right?”
“It depends who he’s looking for. He knows Kristopher and I are travelling together. If…”
If Reiniger had found Kit with Leo, it wouldn’t take long to figure out who Leo was. His dress and lack of language skills would make it very obvious. Reiniger knew Michel; they’d worked together for months. He’d also guess that having Kit in custody meant Michel was probably not far away.
“Do you think this could be a trap and there will be soldiers waiting for us?” Ken asked.
“Maybe. I’m not turning back, though. I’ve got to make sure Kristopher is all right. If they’ve found him…” Michel knew how stubborn Kit could be, especially when he was doing what he thought was necessary to protect someone he cared about.
“It rather negates the whole mission if they have him, doesn’t it?”
“I don’t care about the damn mission,” Michel muttered. “I’ve seen what those men are capable of.” He shuddered.
