Six Sentence Sunday


OK, here’s the beginning of the short story The High Priestess that will be featured in the collection Tales of the Southern Kindgoms out as soon as I can get my hands on an editor, haha. Consider it a WiP.

The doctor straightened his back and looked sternly at Neeraj who was lying in bed at the royal palace knowing exactly what his sickness was but eager to hear an expert’s opinion.

“Too much alcohol, your majesty,” the doctor said. “One more glass and it will kill you. It has become poison for you. Stop drinking now if you care for your life.”

Neeraj scoffed and shooed him away.
