Today is going to be a busy day for me as I'm taking my dog to a dog show to showcase our agility training skills. Wish us luck!
As for the snippet, I'm continuing where I left off from last week with Under the love of Darkness. Kaila was catching her breath and remembering her sister... but time is up.
Edits have taken place to keep to WeWriWa guidelines.

Kaila’s eyes snapped open at the sound of an unpleasant gurgle. Damn minions. They were back. Her goal was at the other side of this wall, all she needed to do was get rid of the last of the gatekeepers and she’d be there. Fear slithered down her back as she heard the loud clap of its webbed feet against the flagstone. She’d always thought that those that felt no fear were folly. Without fear there was no sense of preservation. Fear kept you on your toes. She raised her knife and stepped out of the shadows, sinking the weapon deep into the minion’s gut. The creature’s eyes widened in surprise, its mouth forming an almost perfect circle.
