HUMP DAY HOOK is a weekly blog hop where each participating author posts one paragraph from either a published book or work in progress. My excerpt comes from Trails of Love I Crawl Part 2. In the past weeks I already introduced you to the men of Vignesbelie family, Étienne and Philippe. Today the spotlight is on Captain Dídac Misobrena, Étienne’s best friend. It’s still the same night in the Cherson’s army encampment. Yes, it’s a long one, brimming with emotions just everywhere. Enjoy reading.

He couldn’t do anything to kill them. How gutless the inner torturers were! They hadn’t spoken when his body had been like a well oiled blade. Nay, they only came when he felt… rusty. Like an old sword that is not needed anymore. Like a sword marking a silent grave. Oblivious to the elements, rusting away slowly. Year by year, day by day, hour by hour.
