Medieval Monday Blog Hop - Laurel O'Donnell

Excerpt 11 – ANGEL’S ASSASSIN by Laurel O’Donnell
Damien caught a movement out of the corner of his eye.
Roke darted around him, toward the curtain.
What was there?  More men?  Damien cut him off in two steps, blocking his escape.  He knew instinctively there were no more of Roke’s men behind the curtain, because Roke would have called for them.
Roke backed away from Damien.
Damien could not afford to take his gaze from Roke, but he listened for Mother.  Nothing.  No sound.  Mother was as silent as the night, and as deadly as poison.  There would be no sound before Mother’s attack.  Damien quickly circled to Roke’s right, so his back was against the wall and he could see the entire room.
Roke skittered back away from Damien, farther back from the curtain.
Damien quickly surveyed the room, but Mother was nowhere to be seen.  Was he hiding?  Behind the bed?  He would never have fled without Roke.
