This is a Damon Wulfres drabble – a story of exactly 100 words to go with my series The Hidden War. It is set between the end of the first story, The End of the Journey, and the beginning of the second, A New Path. I hope you enjoy it.
Thank you very much for visiting today.
Waking Light (A ‘Hidden War’ Drabble)
by Sophie Duncan
Damon got up and plodded sleepily over to his door. He flicked the light switch – nothing. Groaning, he turned and began feeling his way round his room for an alternative light-source. Half asleep still, he didn’t realise he was reaching out with more than fingers when, with a fizzing sound, a candle on the safe-house room’s mantle flickered into life.
Power tingled through him. Fascinated by it, Damon wandered over, examining the wick. However, his door slammed open. Zac’s worried voice demanded, “Damon?”
Despite his boyfriend’s worry, the strange, but comfortable feeling held sway. Damon turned, shrugged and smiled.
