Hello, everyone! I’m actually writing this only a few minutes from walking out the door to head to Chicago for ACEN. It promises to be a rather spectacular weekend, so you can be sure that both me and Kate will have plenty of stories to tell when we get back!
The prompt for this week is #41: “Blood.”
“The child should be thrown from the ramparts. You saw what her mother did!”
“It’s true that her mother’s crime was heinous. Still, at most, the child should only be sent back to the commons.”
The man in the center stood and the room fell silent. The silence remained until he departed, at which point the man who had been to his left murmured.
“The emperor has spoken. The child is of blood. None other exists before or after.”
