Quick announcement. I have passed 15 blogs for Cyc's birthday bash! That means I am going to do something special. A giveaway. What am I giving away? Not sure yet. I was thinking a $25 gift card, but if I get to 20 blogs, maybe I'll up the amount. *hint hint go sign up.* Now back to our regularly scheduled post.
1. Of, relating to, or resembling rock, especially in hardness; stony.
2. Of or relating to the very dense, hard portion of the temporal bone that forms a protective case for the inner ear.
[Middle English, from Old French petros, from Latin petrsus, rocky, from petra, rock, from Greek petr; see per-2 in Indo-European roots.]
This is another word I couldn't pass up, but not for writerly reasons. Nope, if watch Doctor Who, you can guess why I picked this word. Also, feel free to choose your doctor for the story. That's why I left him a bit vague.
Laura's eyes ached from holding them open. Carefully, she closed one then the other, but the relief was fleeting. She pressed against the wall as if that would make a door open and allow her to escape the petrous creature trapping her.
"AHA!" A voice yelled from out of sight.
Laura almost looked away from the weeping angel. "Doctor? What are you doing?”
There was a crash and a man stumbled into view. He grinned impishly, holding up a child’s mask. “This should do.”
Again, Laura almost broke eye contact. “A mask? Are you kidding?”
“I don’t kid. Trust me.”
