Silver Pen: Into the Dark by Asteria Gonzalez
Asteria, one of our intrepid sprinters (who once did a MARATHON seven hour session omg) has, unsurprisingly, reached 15,000 words! She’s also working on two separate projects for NaNoWriMo this year, but the one she’s sharing with us is Into the Dark. Check it out below, and be sure to give her your congratulations!
Into the Dark
After leaving the Academy, two friends are drawn into a strange grove of trees, where they awaken an ancient magic that threatens the world.
“Serchio,” I rasped out and dragged my gaze from the muddled scarlet mess to him. My gaze snagged on the place where he’d stood, the empty boot prints, the drops of fresh blood. “Serchio?”
From the spattering of blood, there was a drop leading away, then another and another, all headed into the grove of slowly twining trees.
Huzzah Asteria! So, so, so happy you’re part of the team and still killing it.
