I haven’t talked about the villain of my work in progress much . But I will in the upcoming weeks. I thought I was finished with the previous chapter 10 but over the weekend I decided I needed to place another scene at the beginning of chapter 10. This scene has the POV of the villain named Xavier. His POV was first introduced in the 3rd chapter of my book . And the reason why I write him as having a POV is because he is one of the original wolves from the first world. What happens with his character arc in this particular novel is very important to the story events in the next books in my series that I will be writing.
In this scene Xavier and Mary find out that Gabby, the girl that they had planned to take to Accalia, their Kraldire(wolf leader) is dead and so they must find another person or they will be dealt with by Accalia . They don’t want to be in trouble with her. While Mary is looking around Gabby’s room and shaking a snow globe she sees a picture of Gabby and Sirena. Mary remembers Sirena as the one she awarded the dance scholarship to. Xavier has a blasé attitude toward everything because he hasn’t completed his task yet. Which is to catch the earthdiver and the yearling pack that still evades him. Upset with Mary he smashes the snow globe. Even though the snow globe makes a brief appearance in this scene , it is the 2nd time it is seen because it appeared in the prologue .
It is a snow globe of the town which symbolizes that the town and people in it are trapped. When he smashes it towards the end of this scene it symbolizes that something is going to literally break. And it also goes well with them actually realizing that Gabby knew Sirena who they think is a mortal . They devise a plan to find Sirena and swap her with Gabby for the kraldire’s experiment because they think Accalia will never know the difference.
This is an important scene in the novel because it leads up to the climax and the very end of my novel an unexpected ending. So you will see what happens next.
Xavier with only 2 POV scenes in the whole novel so far will have more scenes in the upcoming chapters.
I will continue on with my next scene in chapter 11 entitled STEALING HEARTS .
