Rainbow Snippets (6th February)

For this week’s Rainbow Snippets, six sentences from my current WIP. This is Recovery, the third of the Reawakening series. Raif has woken the dragon Arden from his thousand year sleep and they are now walking back south as Arden adjusts to being back in human form and how the world has changed.

Raif originally had very high expectations of this noble dragon. Raif is foolish. Don’t be like Raif 😉

Arden’s habit of wandering around wreathed in nothing but flames until he felt like getting dressed in the morning was frustrating as well, but Raif knew perfectly well that not everyone found nudity as rude as the Tiallatai. Arden only occasionally talked in his sleep in the tent at night, and that and the snoring were, if Raif was being fair and considerate, involuntary physical actions.
The day he’d spent asking Raif the words for various body parts with an ever-widening smirk had been difficult, although thankfully not repeated. Flicking little flames at the end of Raif’s nose when he was taking a perfectly justified few moments of quiet was not all that reprehensible, given the flames always went out before they touched skin (the way he chortled every time Raif flinched, however, was less forgiveable).
Nonetheless, he did his share of camp chores, and walked at a good pace, and radiated enough heat at nights that camping on a frosty night wasn’t as unpleasant as it could have been. All in all, it wasn’t until they met up with other travellers that Raif began to find him unbearably irritating.

    Love it! I can’t wait to find out what happens around other travelers.

  2. Kate Lowell says:

    I’m having trouble picturing a bratty dragon, but that’s the only word for it. I’ll admit it–I lol’d.

  3. Michelle in Colorado says:

    Poor Raif

  4. Layla Dorine says:

    Very amusing, makes me want to read more

  5. Love the bit with the flames! It makes sense that Arden wants to have a little fun after a thousand year sleep. 🙂

    Arden sounds like fun, I want to hear more about him 🙂

  7. I just loved that so much! I started writing about a dragon shifter, but he was much different to Arden. He stayed pocked sized and hid most of the time. Talk about socially awkward 🙂 I get the feeling Arden would eat him for breakfast – and his pet rat, too (who is actually an angel in disguise) I want to read more about Arden. Write fast 😀

      A socially awkward pocket dragon sounds adorable ^_^

      Arden doesn’t eat people and he only sets fire to those he really dislikes 😉 Adopting people and loving them so hard he won’t let them out of his sight, on the other hand…

      I’m writing as fast as I can 😉

    Poor Raif but Arden sounds like so much fun

  9. Rian Duran says:

    First of all I love the name Arden. I think I already like it’s owner here, too. He seems such a sweet bratty dragon.

  10. Oh, I like Arden! Be nice to him. 🙂

  11. There’s so much mischief inherent in this, and I love it!
