Six Sentence Sunday

Continuing with excerpts from Priestess of the Nile, out from Carina Jan 23rd

The goddess Isis suspects Sobek is hiding something, as he visits Merys more and more often. Isis comes to confront him as he goes about his appointed tasks, keeping the Nile clear and free flowing:

One minute the light was shining on
sand and scrub brush and the next minute the queen
stood there, tall, silent, swathed in her customary black
sheath.

“What a surprise to find you working.” Scorn
burned in her voice. “You have been absent from your
duties to my river quite often of late.”

What can I say to that? It’s true.
