  1. I actually had time to write this week. it’s a miracle!! XD Short, but it’s something.

    The bell chimed twice which meant he had completed the ritual. At last. Lucca breathed a sigh of relief and collapsed onto his knees sweating and shaking. He could hear his grandmother’s breath looming over his shoulder. Somehow he always smelled her perfume over the burning incense.

    “Perhaps you’d like to try again.” It wasn’t a request.

    “…would you like me to try again?” the boy asked. He knew the answer.

    “Do it until you can say the words without stuttering. We can’t have a leader with a stutter.”

    Sleep beckoned Lucca to the floor’s embrace, but his grandmother chased away those thoughts with the sharp tap of her staff on the stone. “Once more.” And the boy stood, almost mechanically, reciting words that held no meaning to him anymore.

Let me know your thoughts!
