I didn’t sign up for this week because I felt so bad about not getting around to read everyone else’s 8 last week. Sorry. Watford FC won an important game and so celebrating seemed like a good idea. Alcohol bad.
As I'm only a weekend writer of Romance, Darrah is still having trouble with Sark Hale Tarla. In a time long past in our history, a Sarkisian ship is stranded on Earth. Assimilation is at an early stage but it has not proven to be an easy option for either people. Now, Hale has been assigned to Darrah and her arm of men. His role is to smooth over any diplomatic - or worse - problems that might arise in the Outlands, where the Sarkisians were allowed to settle, when they are sent to find the missing human heir to the Thorn Throne, Erishdren. Rogue Sarkisians are thought to have been behind the abduction.
In this piece I have returned to Darrah. She has been facing her friend, Rylo, the Factor - second-in-command in her Arm of men – since he touched her shoulder to attract her attention. Rylo is worried. Darrah is still frayed and on edge after Hale goaded her into attacking him so he could prove a point: that in single combat, between a Sarkisian and one of her men, it would not be the human who came out the victor. They were both burned by the encounter.
I missed out a small gap where Hale explains his past, and my plot.
“With you, Koman.”
Darrah stared beyond her Factor towards the mountains, around the clearing, then down at the ground near her feet.
Rylo brought his bow up and tapped it against the one Darrah held, armed and ready. “Without enemies, you hone your skills on rodents? I feel sorry for the scurries, already.”
“Never could abide creatures that get the first gnaw on my food. I don’t mind the sharing, but tiny tooth marks push me over the edge.”

What’s your antagonist missing? What hasn’t he yet seen, figured out or found? Plant that discovery.
Hale has been working out what he was missing.
