The Weekend Writing Warriors blog hop is a weekly event in which writers are invited to share eight sentences from one of their works for other writers, readers and random bloggers to read, critique and comment on. Visit their site by clicking on the button below for a list of other participating writers and share the love! Today’s 8 comes from Pool, continuing the scene in town where Norah and her friends meet up with some of the locals and learn a little history about the mountain where they are staying.

They’d tell people they heard stuff way down in the mine, or that people were getting dragged off and later they’d find these bones, human bones, kipkark, all chewed on, but nobody believed them, just like you don’t believe me,” she added.
