By the Light of the Silvery Moon – J’Sharn’s World – Episode 19

Every Sunday, Alastair shares one of his photos as a prompt for Sunday Photo Fiction. To join in, click here to check out the rules and leave a link to your literary masterpiece. My story—another snippet of J’Sharn’s World—begins after the photo.

Moonrise

Andrea shivered as she and J’Sharn made their way along the ridge towards their destination. If not for the full moon rising over the mountain range ahead of them, they would have been in complete darkness.

J’Sharn paused to allow Andrea to catch up. “You are well, Andrea?”

The young girl drew in a ragged breath and nodded before dropping to the ground and resting her head on her knees.

“Drink.” J’Sharn thrust a crystal flask into her hands. “Just a few mouthfuls.”

Andrea took the lid off and took a cautious mouthful. Her eyebrows tried to do a disappearing trick into her hair.

J’Sharn smiled. “Unusual is it not.”

Unusual …” Andrea grinned and took another mouthful, “it’s like a three-course dinner.”

“That is exactly what Simon said.”

“Is Sim okay?”

“He is with Merea,” J’Sharn replied, as if that explained everything. He reached out and pulled Andrea to her feet. “Come, the moon is well risen; we must reach the cave before the satellite passes overhead.”

“They’re never going to stop hunting us are they?”

“It does not matter, they will not find us again Andrea.”

“You’re sure?”

J’Sharn nodded, “I am sure.”

    Would it be possible to post the links to this story on one page.
    I know I’ve missed a few. J’Sharn is mystical isn’t he :)

    As for Uncle Horace’s Study… Maybe next week ;)
    Thanks for stopping by Sonja’s story.

    J’Sharn seems very confident. I hope he knows what he’s talking about.

    • Lyn says:

      Thanks for the read Russell. Yep, J’Sharn knows what he’s talking about. He has very special abilities – some of which have been revealed in previous instalments and others are yet to be revealed or used (on Earth at least) ;-)

  6. RoSy says:

    Oh – sounds like a good mystery!
    Was going to request the same as Jules. But – I see you’ve got that covered now. Thanks. :)

    • Lyn says:

      Thanks for reading and liking “By the Light of the Silvery Moon” Rosy :-) As a matter of fact, the latest “Write Now” prompt is perfect for another instalment. I’ll make sure to add the links to the other episodes at the end ;-)
