Hello, Snippetteers! It’s the middle of a crazy weekend — I help run a two-day party here in the Twin Cities, for four or five thousand people, on St. Patrick’s Day and the closest Sunday to it. And today I had to get my taxes done. *shudder* But now I’m coming up for air, and I have seven (oops) sentences from STONE COLD for you. The speaker is Terry, who’s trapped with Coinneach in a ward that’s been put up around a wellspring. Coinneach is a Gille Dubh, a member of a race that hates the Fae (and has good reason to); there’s a truce between the two races right now, but Coinneach suspects the Fae have already broken it, and is trying to get evidence out of Terry, basically by trying to convince Terry that Maelduin, his Fae SoulShare, is lying to him, conning him, in an attempt to get back the half of his soul Terry has. And Terry’s kind of predisposed to believe Coinneach, because Terry has a really terrible track record when it comes to love — it’s not all that hard to convince him that he’s just made one more bad choice in a long line of bad choices.
I’d rather be right than take a chance on being happy.
When had he decided to live like that?
He hadn’t. He’d never made that decision. He’d simply let one acceptance of ‘the way things were,’ one way of coping with a hurt, slide into another, until the acceptance had become his reality.
Maelduin offered him magick, maybe more.
If he could take the chance.
