Express Your Meme (EYM) – Lines from my current WIP

large_open_bookWelcome to another edition of Express Your Meme. Thanks to Jackie at Bouquet of Books and Dani at Entertaining Interests for setting this up and running it. This is a weekly Blog-Hop that challenges us to answering different ideas about ourselves and our work.

It’s been awhile since I’ve done this. I didn’t do it because I was unable to answer the last few, but I hope to do these as much as I can do. It’s great being part of a community, no matter how small or how large.

This week seems like a fun one and I can’t wait to get started:

This week’s question/task:
In your WIP, what is the last line of pg10 and the first line of pg42?

Slight problem. While I have written some lines to my story, I haven’t actually started to write the story. Hard to do page 10 and 42 if I don’t have a page 1. So instead, I am going to preview two parts of my story and hope the judges don’t mark me too low on the grading scale. This is the first preview of my book, Daygar Legacy

PART I

“There are isolated incidents across Europe of Jews dying. Being blamed for the coming plague. Villages hoping that their deaths won’t bring the disease,” Jacques stated.

“I cannot stop what people will do, what superstitions they believe outside the words of their savior,” the Pope said.

“If you take action to stop this, people will listen.”

“What action would you suggest I take?”

“Tell people the truth, tell them of the Vampire invasion.”

The Pope said nothing for a moment, simply stared into empty space. With a moment passed, he responded.

“After the fall of Rome, there were a great many vampires that ravaged the lands. It took a great King, Charlemenge to stop the Vampires and reunite Europe. In his wisdom, he decree that Vampires would only be known to the Church. You would have me undermine that decision to save a few lives of the people that put our savior on the cross?”

“If we let people know, they can stop pointing fingers at the Jews,” Jacques said with frustration.

“Instead, point them at each other. As bad as this disease is, realizing that the Church knew of this threat, knowing that when they sleep at night it could be their last, that Vampires are real and live amongst us… that would cause a greater threat than any one disease.”

PART II

Two men come from the darkness, carrying a pig on a pole. The smell suggests it was recently killed. Once in view, they speak, “Our Masters has ordered that you be given this offering as their guests.”

Jacques knew in this circumstance, that rejecting a gift such as this could be an insult. “Tell your Masters we accept this offering and we are most pleased.”

The servents then put the pig in place above the fire, allowing it start cooking. Once they were done, the turned and walked the direction they came.

“If you can take a request back to you Masters, we would ask for bread. I only make this request on behalf of one of my members unable to partake in this offering due to his faith forbidding it.”

 

 

Not a whole lot of information about the book, but you do get to meet Jacques. Tell me what you think.
