Teaser Tuesday (10)

Here is another Teaser Tuesday from my WIP "The Protected Bloodlines" Enjoy!!! :)
The boys laughed as they applauded Yuli’s reenactment of Batu saving his stampeding herd. Yuli bowed then laughed.
“But what is truly amazing is that he actually forgot his shantel. I did not know you ever took it off,” Yuli said.
“Well, that’s just it,” Batu said shaking his head, “I don’t remember taking it off. Lately though, I have had this feeling of…” he paused as two changeling guards walked by.
“What’s wrong,” Yuli asked becoming more serious.
“I just feel that I’m being watched,” Batu answered.
Baseet and Unis smiled.
“But you are being watched,” Baseet said. He passed his and over Batu’s shantel. It responded to the young Mat’hool’s touch. “It is the job of your guardian to always watch over you.”
“I know, Batu said, “but this feeling is different, I can’t explain it. Neither can I explain why I wasn’t wearing it when I left.”

Ah, mystery. What happened to Batu's shantel? Seems like it's something that you would never forget or leave/take off.

Interesting....we want more! :)

hehehe, thanks Karen! For a Sheebtan, his shantel marks his rank and status in society. Batu is not like most Sheebtan, especially in his family. He had a very unique beginning. So his shantel is very important as it was his father's shantel and it marks his status in his family and society. :)
