I'm slowly bringing out snippets from "Genesis," a story that I'd written long ago. So, if you didn't catch the previous snippets,catch the story so far
Well, things are getting downright exciting...and a bit scary. Even Aston knows how dumb it is to face down a Gohr, as anyone who's read Friends in Deed can attest to. But Gabriel is on a mission, and it's time to see who has the strongest will:
There was no fear evident as Gabriel turned to face the beast. “That was the past. You’d do well to leave it there.”
“No, I think I’ll help myself right here in the present.” The burly behemoth wrapped his hand around the top of the satchel.
Gabriel’s hand jerked out and clamped down on Azrael’s fur-laden arm. His tone was low, but still calm and collected as he stood. “These funds are for the Lord’s work. I strongly urge you to take a different course of action.”
Be sure to come back next week for yet another installment. Again, I always enjoy your comments!
Maybe the Gohr could give up on the money and consider it a charitable contribution, since it's for the Lord's work.ReplyDelete
Alright, in one corner we've got a big, and quite terrifying creature. In the other: a calm and collected human. I'm thinking that if a human is brave ebough to stand up to dripping jowls and jutting teeth, he's a bad ass. Gohr, let go of the satchel. I think your hand and/or face is in danger. :)ReplyDelete
Great tension. Can't wait to see the resolve.
Patrick, I don't think the Gohr give the same exemptions to taxation...they're big on war, and have to pay for all that... ;-)ReplyDelete
JM, I think you're right...though I think we might be seeing a DEM ending, so people might be disappointed. :-D
Great! I'm going to have to go back and read more. These beasts have me curiousReplyDelete
They're definitely not anyone I'd want to hang around, that's for sure...ReplyDelete
Somehow I question whether Gabriel is really any more human than the Gohr.ReplyDelete
I think he has a more human appearance than the Gohr... :-)ReplyDelete
These aren't the Gohr you're looking for... what?ReplyDelete
Gabriel is absolutely fascinating and I think your boys are wondering right about now what they've landed in the middle of.
They might also be wondering what it is that feels so funny (and smells so bad) in their shorts... :-DReplyDelete
Don't mess with the Lord's work. You wouldn't like him when he's grumpy.ReplyDelete
Good stuff!! Now, I don't know the bible too well, but I can't help but picture the David and Goliath scene. Nice tension building up here!!ReplyDelete
Ooh, I don't want to mess with a Gohr!!ReplyDelete
Well, it's sort of like David and Goliath, except Gabriel wasn't as innocent as David was at that moment. :-DReplyDelete
Jessica, I wouldn't either... ;-)
