Six Sentence Sunday

This is an excerpt from the second book in the Guardians of the Gray Tower Series, Guardian's Vow. It will release June 16 from Siren Publishing. The scene is the funeral of Gibor Vane's father, who passed away after a long illness. Gibor is speaking.

"I once thought that it was warriors and kings who made countries great, who made Emryn great, but  now I know that it is the simple men, the ordinary men, the people like my father, who give Emryn its strength and its honor. It’s people like my father who shirk no task, however big or small, who stay true to their faith and their king, who love their family. I will miss my father more than I would have ever believed possible. I only hope that I can live my life in a way that would bring him pride.”
      Lael could see, even from a distance, the wash of tears in Gibor’s eyes. He wanted to go to him so desperately that he took an instinctive step forward.
