Weekend Writing Warriors

It's Sunday and I'm participating in the Weekend Writing Warriors mini hop again. The deal is to post 8 sentences from a writing project, published or unpublished. This week I'm offering a bit from my legend-inspired romance, The Witchy Wolf and the Wendigo (book1 Ashkewheteasu)  

my 8, then details follow:

It was all gone, as was the charge he’d been sworn to. There was nothing left to do but end this existence.

Looking down, he spied a single pearl left in the track they’d left behind. His gaze fell to a fist-sized chert nodule lying on the ground next to it. There’d be only small effort on his part to work a stone and fashion a knife. As quickly as he had taken his human form, he returned to that of a wolf and headed toward his hidden cave. Death was not something an immortal considered, but he had no reason to live. Distracted by thoughts of suicide, Ash stepped into the road.

Behind the scenes: Ashkewheteasu has been watching over his wife's burial mound for millennia. Today, all that remains is the freshwater pearl.

Here's the story
