Famine #71: Fierce

Hello! I've been away from the blog for over a month. o.O Thought I'd jump onto the Weekend Writing Warriors hop this week with a post from Famine. Today's picture and post feature eight-year-old Matilde, and she's the first to speak in this early scene from the book. ===============

Famine by Monica Pierce“Gimme a knife.”

Bartholomew paused on the stairs. He turned and found that he was eye-to-eye with the girl. What he had thought was fear driving her to hide beneath her bed, he now saw to be a fierce determination to survive. “After you have had lessons in their use.”

“When?”

“Soon.”

She scowled and said, “That’s a no-good answer.”
