DTD — 499 Words, and the man with the dull job

By Holly Lisle

Michael Bennetan steps up to carry the first part of the first scene of the archeological subplot of the story. He’s doing a dull dig of a minor pre-Columbian hunting camp in Ohio, and only finding evidence that it was used seasonally and lightly—it offers nothing unique, nothing cool, nothing that will give the historical society that hired him reason to stop the community developers who want to build there.

Except he’s just discovered something that doesn’t fit.

Little does he know…

Well, “Little does he know…” has to wait until Sunday night, actually. Tomorrow starts the weekend for me.

But I do know that the interesting stain in Ohio’s clay that tipped him to the presence of the artifact beneath it was caused by blood.

.

So. How’re you doing with your story?
