I thought I’d share with you some of my progress. I’m hoping to have the time to finish up this book soon. In the meantime, I wanted to share an excerpt from the story currently titled “A Vampire Called Medina”. In this tale, a Templar Knight named Guilabert is torturing Medina because she might have information that is needed to find the treasure the order seeks. Enjoy.
“I saw the foundations as they were being laid and when I returned, centuries later, I saw it before it was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar II. Those followers of Absolom were calling themselves the Priory of Sion at that point.” She narrowed her eyes and looked at them. “I would think that this name has meaning for you.”
“Of course.” The Grandmaster paced the room, slowly. For a long time the only sounds were his boots clacking on the stone floor and the sounds from the streets below floating through the window. When he finished pacing, he sat on the windowsill. “And did the Priory ever return to the temple?”
“You know the answer to that. You also know that they were missing the knowledge that would lead them to their records and the Ark of the Covenant.” She watched his face: his mouth twitched and he looked to the side before turning away to gaze out the window. She smiled. “I believe the Priory spent a lot of time exploring the temple before and after its destruction but they were unsuccessful, hmm?” Grandmaster de Molay shrugged and she smiled again. “But until recent events, searching the temple or its foundation would have aroused the suspicions of those in charge; and then the Romans came, eventually to expel all the Hebrews from the area.”
“And the Priory fled to Gaul to intermingle with the Franks, and so on.” Guilabert unfolded his arms, rolled his right hand as he leaned on the door frame and looked at the Grandmaster. “So we’re all caught up? Good. We can end her existence now.”
