Weekend Writing Warriors: Prison Sentence

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors.  My sample today picks up where I left off last week, at the prison.  If you've just joined me, Prince Alan's father sentenced him to a year in prison because he refused to wed a woman of his father's choosing.  The prince has just arrived and is speaking to the keeper, the warden at the prison.  The keeper has just asked Prince Alan why he had not trained as a warrior.  Prince Alan is answering his question.  When you finish here, please go on over to http://www.wewriwa.com and find other lovely sentences from participating authors.

blurb:

Forced by his father into a marriage he didn’t want, Prince Alan soon finds that his bride isn’t the sweet, submissive creature he expected.  Morgane has the heart of a dragon and beauty beyond compare, but she isn’t thrilled about the marriage either.  When black treachery threatens the kingdom, Morgane and Alan embark on a perilous journey that has an excellent chance of ending in failure and death for them and all of their people.  
 
Excerpt:

"My father had my brother. He had no use for me because I

liked to paint."
 

Kynthelig stepped forward and struck the prince across the

face. A black stone in his elaborate gold ring scratched a thin red

line across Alan's cheek. "You were told to address me as Keeper

Kynthelig."
 

The prince's eyes flashed. "Yes, Keeper Kynthelig."
 

╩║That is better."

Poor Alan. Nothing like feeling superfluous. And now to go through this on top of it.
