Excerpt from Vermillion Bird of the South:
*This first story is about Makaya who leaves her ‘home’ after soldiers attack and kill her twin brother. This scene happens before she leaves, at the dining table between Ember, her friend, Mill (her caretaker and the father of Ember) and Zak, Mill’s business partner…
“Ember.” Mill held his empty glass above his head, waiting for her to refill it.
Ember jumped out of her seat and ran into the kitchen with a “yes Sir.” When she returned, she immediately began pouring the liquid, some kind of expensive wine, into his glass. “Is that all, father?”
Mill stiffened, “What did you call me?”
Ember hesitated. “Father, Sir.”
A loud burst of laughter came from Zak. “Poor ‘daddy’. What are you going to do with her now?”
What do you all think?
