Greetings, all! It’s time for some Hump Day Hooking!
I am continuing with Subeo. If you need to catch up, click here.
Liam was… for the circumstances… strangely peaceful.
That stinking, gelatinous crap must have some sedative quality.
Surprisingly, it had had no taste. On the other hand his tongue felt as if some snail were wandering about his mouth, leaving a trail behind. He really wanted some water.
How long he had waited in his cell, he didn’t know. He had been surprised at the grinding as the door opened to admit two fellows in black robes. How cliché, he’d thought and may have giggled at them. Like everyone else he’d interacted with, they weren’t open to humor.
They’d lifted him beneath his arms and carried him out into the dimly lit corridor. He struggled to walk—his legs seeming to have lost several degrees of function—but gave up, letting the goons drag him along. Another door opened, ringing metallically against the wall, and he was hauled into a large space, lit—appropriately, he snickered—by torches.
He sobered though when he saw the figure bound and chained in the center of the room. The naked man was Keith—he would recognize that Celtic tattoo anywhere.
Thanks for reading!

Love the touch of humour, there. Good stuff!
He’s very calm for the situation. Thank goodness for the gelatious crap. Terrific hook.
