Daily Prompt: forward

So far this year, I’ve written over 167,000 words in 2 different novels. I can’t wait to share both of them with the world.

From Protector of the Grey House:

Vincent stood waiting, letting the tension in the room grow. He watched patiently while Anthony nodded to Joseph then went to join Julia, who was standing with the other vampires. Vincent stepped forward, crossed his arms behind his back and waited for silence. It didn’t take long. There was a feeling of anticipation. All under his protection were present. The only creature that didn’t know something was amiss was Natalia.

Vincent turned his attention to her and caught her eye. “Natalia, front and center.”

Natalia gave him a quizzical expression. Even with her headache a memory, she didn’t want to fight, and had already informed him of such. She crossed her arms and shook her head. “I’m not fighting today Vincent.”

He stared her down, giving her a stern look. The look was very much a master instructing a disobedient servant. “Natalia, do as I ask.”
