A Sample of my Writing
From “Long Lost”, a Xena: Warrior Princess story
The village looked like any other village they had been to in the past five years they had been traveling together. Gabrielle wasn’t really interested in much else besides the inn and maybe the dry goods store right across from said inn. She was tired, cold, hungry, and in desperate need of a bath. And she was starting to feel a little irritated as well.
For the past few days, Xena had been quiet. And not just normal Warrior Princess quiet but abnormally quiet. No matter what the blonde said or asked, Xena would always respond with one or two word answers or just a grunt. The one that got to Gabrielle the most was the answer she gave last night.
Gods, how frustrating. Of course, Gabrielle wasn’t going to bother mentioning that she had propositioned the warrior just out of curiosity. She had wanted to see her partner’s response. They hadn’t made love in…gods, in so long. In fact, it seemed to Gabrielle that a distance was rapidly making itself known between them. And it was breaking her heart even more than the events before their deaths did.
She looked over at Xena, who was staring ahead, her eyes set on the inn. ‘I can’t take much more of this silence,’ the leather clad blonde thought. ‘I need some time to myself.’
“Xena, I’m going to the dry goods store across from the inn. We need supplies.”
All she got was a nod. Not even a flicker of a gaze in her direction. Not even a grunt. And the blonde’s heart broke a little more.
She watched her partner lead Argo toward the inn. ‘Maybe it’s me,’ she thought grimly. ‘Maybe she’s finally sick of me.’
She sighed and walked into the dry goods store, knowing that her self-pity needed to be put aside so she could concentrate on buying the goods they needed. “Besides,’ she thought. ‘Xena will need some supplies when she finally tells me to leave her alone.’
She was so lost in thought that she didn’t notice the little girl until small arms were wrapped around her legs and a soft blonde head was resting on her thigh.
Gabrielle started and looked down at the child attached to her leg. “Um, hello.” She said softly.
The blonde head moved and a little face was soon turned up, sea green eyes staring into her own.
“HI!” the girl said with a grin.
