For this foray into Six Sentence Sunday, I chose a scene from a fantasy work-in-progress, “The Godstone.” This scene shows the awakening of the heroine’s hidden gift and takes place in the midst of a pitched battle on a city’s ramparts.
Her amulet wanted something–needed something. Tanwyn’s eyes dropped shut. Brilliant lines of dancing light flashed against her closed lids, swirling into a whirlwind of harmony. Hardly aware of her body, she crawled forward, laid her hands against the sides of the wounded man’s arrow-pierced flesh, and began to sing. White fire seared from her hands. The man moaned, but his breathing grew steady and the flow of blood stemmed.

Hmmm… I'm curious what she's singing… is it like just wordless sounds that rise and fall, or something like a monk's chant? Perhaps a specific song with specific words?
