Weekend Writing Warriors - #8sunday

Here we are, my second participation as a Weekend Writing Warrior, where writers share an 8-10 sentence snippet of their writing.

I thought I'd pick up from where I left off last weekend during In Pain and Blood... Where Tracker (the hound) just wanted a day at a tavern without someone picking a fight...


Blurb: When a routine inspection goes awry, Dylan is left unleashed and alone. Afraid he'll become prey for the King's Hounds, he struggles to make his way back to the only safety he's ever known. Or is it?



--------------------------


Someone lunged for them, their fist raised. 
The hound grabbed the offending arm before Dylan could think to retaliate. With barely a pause, the elf decked the poor sod. He hopped onto the bar counter and drew his sword, the blade glittering in the sputtering candlelight. "That's enough!" Tracker bellowed.
People stilled, their attention immediately drawn to the man who'd levelled a sword at the whole room.
"I will have order," he growled, "and I will have it now." He pointed his sword at the thugs attempting to skewer the hedgewitch. "You two, drop your weapons and back away from my friend." 
The men obeyed, hastily tossing aside the pokers and raising their hands.

If you want to read more, the chapters are currently being posted here every second Sunday of the month, apart from the steamier chapters which will require Patreon. The first three chapters are already up.
