Sunday Fic Meme: "Without Fail"

Each Sunday, post six sentences from a writing project -- published, submitted, in progress, for your cat -- whatever. (Ganked from DW)

Below is an excerpt from "Without Fail," a Torn World story that I'm currently drafting. It will eventually be submitted for canon board approval.

Brelig looked up to see how the ship's rigging lay and whether it might cast a fleeting shadow beside the hull. Then he caught a swish of motion detached from the ship's own shadow. "Ware below!" he yelled.

With no more warning than that, a huge green head rose out of the sea to strike down at the ship. Water ran from the sleek arrowhead shape and down the long sinuous neck. A mouth full of needle teeth snapped at the scrambling humans.
