The 13th chapter entitled Dagger of Memories continues in this 2nd scene where I have Cristen coming face to face with the council who is in werewolf form . The scene ended with a total of 704 words.
SOMETHING SINISTER RECAP
In the last scene that I wrote a couple of weeks ago Sirena and her friend Eli went up the mountain in search for their friend Gabby . However I ended with Sirena and Eli in danger as Sirena suddenly screamed because of a loud piercing noise that she heard in her head and Eli trying to help her. But before he can two growling werewolves stand behind him.
Last time I was trying to figure out whether I was going to have Adrian come save the day but I decided to have Cristen come to the rescue this time but just in this scene.
RUN SCENE SUMMARY
Cristen and the rest of the pack are coming from the town with their divers mud on (I will write a post later about divers mud)and they are following Sirena’s jeep that they heard go up the mountain.
Cristen at this point is kind of in a funk because he had to learn through Adrian that Sirena was one of them a canineruh werewolf. He not only blames himself but the earthdiver that continues to taunt him. The earthdiver he believes should have told him about Sirena not Adrian.
He hears the earthdiver taunting Sirena and the council in werewolf form getting ready to attack Eli. And so he races to them . Trying to get the council away from Sirena and Eli he tells them to run but they are frightened . So he knocks Eli out to distract the werewolves and urges Sirena to run . As he fights the other werewolves off but they are too strong . They don’t go for Eli but instead they run after Sirena.
CHANGES FROM THE 1ST DRAFT VS 2ND DRAFT
So that is the whole of this scene. I wasn’t really going to write it this way and going to let Adrian save her from the members of the werewolf council but in my 1st draft Cristen saved her from them.
There is a difference in this draft vs my 1st draft. In the first draft this particular scene is in Sirena’s POV and she already found Gabby and in this scene in my 1st draft there is no Eli. In the first draft within this scene she constantly blacks out and then Cristen changes into his werewolf form to fight the council. But in this draft he doesn’t because of the barrier of the diversmud which keeps him from changing . He also in the first draft is able to weaken the council members making them run off and leave Sirena behind. But in this draft they are too strong for him and I’m guessing that would make sense because they are centuries old and he is only a teenager. So there is a lot of changes within this scene.
Cristen as a character struggle a lot because of his powers so I have him continuing his internal struggle with himself that is continued to be acerbated by the earthdiver even as he battles the council members this first time.
The next scene will be in Sirena’s pov .
