Shadows In A Timeless Myth Presents Six Sentence Sunday Excerpt Two

  Shadows In A Timeless Myth
Six Sentence Sunday Excerpt 
 

For hours on end, Bellina lay where she had fallen—her body in both appearance and reality as fragile-gray and impossibly ancient as her years. Her mind was no better—lost in a broken and deranged trance...unheeding, unconcerned, uncaring.
On the floor beside her—the man whose body she had held in her arms and intimately known as Maric—bled out into a crimson pool that seeped across the floor. The wolf's body, scorched, smoked, seared and burnt on the fire, filled the air with an almost unholy stench. Neither held any value for her any longer—FenMaric was gone, and those fallen companions were to her, naught but empty shells where her beloved's essence had once sheltered.
AraBestla lay across the room too broken to move, too damaged to speak, too weak and too ashamed to even cast a thought.
