Six Sentence Sunday #13: True Glory

This week, I'm going to actually stay with my Regency paranormal romance WIP, A Woman of Proper Accomplishments. Last week, the a friend of Helena (the protagonist) had butted heads with another woman who had just insulted her after the end of a archery competition. Only the word of an important announcement ended their encounter.

-------

Helena stepped away from Jane Thornton to focus on Lady Johnstone through the gathered throng of people. Mr. Morgan stood beside her, a jolly smile on his face visible even at a distance. The continued din of excited conversation from the crowd made any conversation more than a few yards away difficult to hear.

Lady Johnstone held up a hand and waited until the crowd again fell into silence. “The contest is not yet complete. I offer a chance at even greater glory to those who would embody the true spirit of archery.”
