Terribly, terribly late…
Yep. Late for the first WIPpet (well, my first WIPpet) of the year.
In my defense I have been pretty busy as, you know, I’M IN EDINBURGH!!!
I have only a quick WIPpet for today (using Wednesday’s date). So, from chapter 8, scene 1, here is today’s very brief WIPpet.

Aleksian stood silently in the doorway, his arm resting against the frame. Furrowing her brow, Rae approached him slowly. Only when she lifted her hand to touch his cheek did he move to embrace her. “My Aleksian. What’s wrong?” Stroking his face gently, she rested her head against his chest. The calmness in her voice was juxtaposed by the tension radiating from her body.
He sighed heavily, resting his lips against her head. “I’ve been promoted.”
