Wrapping up lose ends regarding the upcoming chapter of Instruments of Flight. Terrified y’all are gonna be kind of ‘meh’ about it, but it’s building up to something, and sometimes these foundation chapters have to happen! 


This latest chapter will be up by TOMORROW! 

Anyway, here’s a teeny peek at what’s to come. Enjoy!

Emily wandered away, still hearing Dougal grunt as he shoveled beneath the snow. The tree cover being so thick, the snow was still packed here - not wet like back near the house, where the sun was shining bright. Emily shivered slightly as she moved on, a slight breeze pushing her hair out of her face. 

The asphalt caught her by surprise, her toe catching on it, causing her to stumble forward. She’d not expected a road here in the middle of the woods, and she couldn’t help but wonder where it went. The slowly melting snow fell from the trees, dropping all around her, leaving wet puddles along the street. She wondered how long it had been since anyone had driven here. Looking back at Dougal, she saw he was propping himself up on the shovel now, looking her way. 

She gave him a wave, then called out.

“Where does this road go?” 

Dougal moved toward her,  coming closer so he didn’t feel the need to yell.

“It leads to other farms, houses, and finally a village. Isn’t much there now, I expect.” He cleared his throat, beckoning her back. 

“Does it go to your house, too?” 

“Aye - it does, winds around a bit, first.” 

She glanced down the road once more, then joined him, carrying the shovel while he pushed the cart of soil.
