Absolute Write June Blog Chain - Let a Player Play

June’s AbsoluteWrite Blog Chain prompt was to post a scene that describes or defines your main character’s attitude. Callista Shea is a combat-trained Fire Witch trapped in an office job. This scene, from my urban fantasy HUNTING IN THE DARK, where she has been asked by her friend Minerva to watch over Minerva’s flower shop, illustrates her peculiar way of dealing with men. I hope you enjoy.

WARNING: This scene contains profanity, and incompetence.

  1. "my brain shrinks to the size of a pea, rolls out of my ear and disappears" LOL, great line :-) Sounds like those two are in for some fun later, cause he doesn't strike me as the sort to let such an opportunity pass.

  2. "He probably liked things to be symmetrical. I glared at the flower arrangement. It could only be considered nice if you liked things like hydra, or explosions." - Awesome. Is Hunting In The Dark published? If so, I'd check it out.
