Glamour Blade ~ #8Sunday

Yeah . . . it’s Weekend Writing Warriors’ 8 Sentence Sunday! How about another 8 sentences from my WIP, Glamour Blade – book 3 in the House Millar series?

“Ale please,” I called to the bartender, the one person here I actually knew. He’d hit on me at one of the other clubs I’d checked out earlier in the week.

“Hey, cutie, you following me?” Chad teased, and winked. He knew he had no chance but we were on good terms.

“Ever the hopeful,” I chided with a smile. “Actually, I’m looking for someone specific. Just hope I don’t end up leaving alone tonight.” I winked and kept my smile in place.

Glamour Blade ~ #8Sunday

Pubs were fine, I just disliked the seedier ones, you know . . . where ‘no’ doesn’t mean no. I was thankful this wasn’t the usual kind. The two servants I’d chatted with swore the aberration came to this club and would return tonight.

Now to hope I can find him and gain his attention.

Knowing my mark had a thing for leather, I’d dressed in the tightest leather pants I could obtain, and added a tight mesh top that showed off my smooth chest, tattoo, and pierced nipple. Add in the kohl around my eyes, the shimmering platinum ringlets my hair naturally fell into, and the glitter sheen on my cheeks, and I was guaranteed to turn heads. My doll-like appearance was both a blessing and a curse for a warrior.

I approached the bar in a slow saunter, took my time to observe the patrons as I passed.

Glamour Blade ~ #8sunday

Yeah . . . it’s Weekend Writing Warriors’ 8 Sentence Sunday! How about another 8 sentences from my WIP, Glamour Blade – book 3 in the House Millar series?

Entering the club was surreal in the extreme. The music thumped to the point I felt it more than heard it—which, with the hearing of a sidhe, was saying something indeed. The low lights flickered against the dark wood and too many bodies kept the place shifting and mysterious as I looked around. Lights flashed over the dance floor giving a strangeness to the dancers appearance—a sort of ethereal, shimmering draw.

Of course, that was deliberate on the part of the owners, easier to hide in plain sight. Vampires, with their slightly luminous skin, were something to behold under certain types of lighting, unless precautions were taken.

I appreciated that the smoking ban was respected here, since I hated the smell of cigarettes almost as much as the taste of it on my tongue.

I had grown tired of club hopping, especially since I never seemed to be sent to the nicer places.
