Now My Wings Fit

Word of the Day Challenge: Agog

Oh, look, Eternal War Trilogy! This is set right at the end of the final book. I cut it off so that a big thing doesn’t get spoiled, but there still are some spoilers for my intended plot.

Agog – highly excited by eagerness, curiosity, anticipation, etc.

“I can see the sea!”

Feidlimid’s cry cut through the air, and Guinevere couldn’t stop the smile from forming on her lips.

The former tavern girl was exactly right: the sea had just appeared from over the crest of the hill, getting nearer and nearer as they pelted across green and pleasant land.

The blue seemed to shine in the sunlight, diamonds glittering on the surface of the water.

It was one of the most beautiful things she had ever seen.

She had heard talk of the sea when she had been a child. Inland though Unia was, seafarers were not infrequent to their village, telling tales of riding the waves and staring up at the stars, no noise except the gentle lull of the water for miles around. She never thought that she would get to see it for herself.

She ran ever faster, agog at the prospect of freedom…

The smile on her face died as a piercing shriek rang through the air.
