Edge of Thorns 3 - Pt 30Part 30
Gabriel is my guardian. If there's anyone I should talk to, it should be him.
With a hesitant smile, the writer turned towards the angel again. "Alton," he said calmly. "Why don't you let Lidia keep you company for the day? Lately, you've seemed happier when she's around. I'll stop by Gabriel's and talk with him. Maybe if I confront him, I can trip him up, find out if he's done anything. I still doubt it, but you never know. He might tell me, especially if he feels guilty about it."
Alton lifted his head and looked at Nathan wearily, but a weak smile appeared on his lips. "It's been a very long time since I've been so challenged," he said with a sigh. "I'm not on my game as much as I used to be. I appreciate your offer, but I'm not sure it will be worth the effort."
"Will it hurt to try?"
The angel thought about it, then sighed, shaking his head as he straightened. "No, it won't hurt to try, and I'll gladly watch Lidia in the meantime. She can come back with me to

I know he feels protective of Lidia, but it may be more important to mention that feather.
"Okay." Nathan swallowed another bite of lunch before he continued. "I'll cut to the chase: I think Gula was wearing one of your feathers in her hair."
Alton very nearly choked on the sip of water he'd just taken. "She what?"
The writer winced. "She was wearing a black feather in her hair when I saw her. I'm pretty sure it was one of yours, unless there's some other reason she could have been wearing it..."
"Doubtful." Alton rubbed his temples. "I'd wondered how she'd managed a human form, being severed from her host. I couldn't imagine she'd somehow gotten another one; doing that requires... never mind." He shook his head and sighed, smiling uneasily. "Please tell me she didn't look much different than she did at the factory, when you first saw her."
"No, not much, just less... piggy." Nathan tried to smile back. "I'm guessing the Sins can't take human form on their

Episode 3: Reviewing the Situation
The silence was palpable. With that smile still stretched across his face, the man walked up to the bar, stopped for a moment to fish some money from his pocket, then turned to Treddz. "Here's a little extra for your pains. I appreciate the service."
She swiped the cash from his hand without hesitation and made a small bow. "Pleasure doin' business with you sir!" Treddz straightened, then turned and gave Alistair a little salute. "See ya' 'round, Ali!" With that, she bounced out of the bar the same way she came in.
As soon as she was gone, the man's smile vanished, and he looked pointedly at Snow and Parker. "Now, conversation."
"I'm not in not in the mood for conversations," Parker drawled, returning the glare.
"What do you want, Artemis?" Snow shot at him, her confident tone somewhat forced. "God, of all the Gray-cloaks the Council could have sent, it had to be you."
"Missed you too, Miss Niveus." Artemis pushed his glasses up the brid

I've been putting off telling Alton about Gula for a while now. I should probably get that taken care of before I get anything else squared away.
"I need to call Alton back," Nathan mumbled to himself, popping two slices of bread into the toaster while he finished up the eggs. Lidia had started to stir, so he fished out his phone again to give the bookseller one more call.
It rang a long time before he answered.
"Sterling and Son. This is Alton speaking. How can I help you?"
"Hey, Alton. It's Nathan again. I..."
"I can't really talk right now; we're a bit busy."
"Oh." He was about to ask how busy, but he heard Alton put the phone aside to speak with a customer, so he waited.
"Sorry about that. You still there, Nathan?"
"Yeah, um... when's a good time to call back?" He realized he didn't want to just tell him over the phone, especially if he had to do more explaining. "Or, is there a time I can stop by to talk when you're less busy? Geeze, I didn't think it'd be so
A Guide to Writing DialogueWhat is dialogue, exactly? The definition from Merriam-Webster’s dictionary was several lines long, so I shall summarize it in a short sentence for the sake of the readers; it’s the writing that illustrates conversations between two or more characters in a story. We read and hear it all around us, but creating it in your own work can be a challenge. However, if you find dialogue an obstacle in your writing, then don’t push the panic button. In this tutorial, you’ll find by analyzing what dialogue can do and how to use it, you can turn your greatest fear into your greatest ally in your story.
What dialogue is
Like I’ve asserted before, dialogue is basically what the characters are saying to each other. It can be found in multiple mediums such as books, movies, comics, video games, etc. We even engage in dialogue daily without even thinking. When you talk to your best friend, a co-worker, or even your dog, you create dialogue. It’s exchang
