#WeWriWa Cargon: Honor and Privilege #fantasy #scifi #postapocalyptic

Another weekend come and gone. They go by so quickly sometimes. Here's another snippet for Weekend Writing Warriors. All of us participating share 8-10 sentences to give you a taste of our writing.

"Well, child, I have finished for another night. Continue to make the most of what you have been given."
Was that an answer to the question that plagued her today and every day Prince Louis pressed himself on her? Was Eve to take a great leap that would vault her from one world to the other? As one of the elite, the differences in their positions would narrow, allowing her  to tell him exactly how little she sought his attention.
Eve dropped her knees and held herself low when the High One had left the hall. Alone, she turned to the boards, her jaw set.
Make the most of what she had been given.

  10. It's easier to make the most of it when you're given a lot and not a little... but I have the feeling her determination will see her through!
