Petir takes a rough tumble in the Connecticut woods, but awakens in the middle of old England. His instinct to freak out is tempered by the arrival of a fair maiden wearing a bow...and arrow. Throwing caution to the wind, Petir decides he has nothing to lose by pursuing Maid Rianne. But when she is captured by the enemy, a geek with no ability to defend himself must find a way to rescue the fair maiden.
“Some water, if you please, mistress,” said Rianne to the florid woman behind the bar.
Mistress Nora handed over the requested water before recognizing Rianne’s grin. Anxiously, the bartender looked around for trouble.
“You should not be here, my lady,” Mistress Nora whispered. “The sheriff’s men are everywhere.”
“Aye, but I carry a message from your son,” intoned Rianne.
“A message from my—” Mistress Nora grimly placed her hands on her hips. “He is not watching the jousting tournament with Little John, I take it?”
“No. He has run away to the forest to join our merry band,” said Rianne. Checking for eavesdroppers, she delivered Christopher’s note.
Mistress Nora unrolled it and laughed. “Prithee, Mother and Father,” she read. “Allow us one night together in the forest. I will return forthwith on the morrow.” She sighed and leaned on the bar with her head in her hands. “Well, at least he spelled everything correctly.”
Rianne chuckled. “Mistress Molly will have him delivered forthwith today if that is your wish,” she assured the irate mother.
“What was that boy thinking?” Mistress Nora responded in frustration.
“What news, fair Rianne?” Allan Lee came up behind her, carrying a tray of dirty dishes.
“Our son has abandoned us for the forest.” Mistress Nora bleakly handed the note to her husband to read.
“The answer is yes,” he said after a moment.
I’m DEBORAH ANN DAVIS, and I write Quirky New/Young Adult Fiction with a Twist. I began writing when searching for inspiration for my 5th grade English Journal. Lo and behold, my world was full of funny tales just waiting to be told. It never occurred to me to pursue writing, not even when I discovered my flare for telling stories at college parties.
After a string of undergrad majors, I realized I could reach a captive audience EVERY DAY in the public school system. As you probably know, teenagers love to laugh, and what could be more entertaining than Biology, Earth Science, and Environmental Science? I jumped into teaching with both feet and loved it for 27 years. It came with an added bonus: Once teens know you like to laugh, they want to make you laugh. Go figure.
Twelve years after our first kiss, I reunited with, and married my childhood sweetheart. Together we coached our daughter's AAU Basketball Team, which swept States two years in a row. (Yay!) Then, for several years, our daughter and our money went to college.
During a particularly nasty bout of Lyme disease, I turned to Fitness to boost my Health, and to Writing to boost my Happiness. Currently, I am a healthy and happy Educational Speaker and a Certified Personal Trainer who loves to write.
We presently reside on a lovely lake in Connecticut. When I’m not writing novels for my Love of Fairs series, I enjoy dabbling with living a sustainable life, dancing, playing outside, and laughing really hard every day. I also promote increasing movement throughout your day as Wiggle Writer in my Merry Meddling blog at http://deborahanndavis.com/merry-meddling/ .
