Ok, here’s a hook from a chapter in my fanfiction…
The alarm bell peeled through the night, propelling Ahgony out of his bed and to his blades before he was even fully awake. They had only been asleep for a short time; the night was ending and dawn was racing for the horizon. He ran from his room in the cellar and nearly collided with Fleur.
“What is that we hear?” Fleur asked.
“A dire calamity, if it rings this hour! I must be off.”
Rhoze rushed into the room, armed herself, with her daggers and bow. “I am ready to travel with you.”
“Where do you go?” Ahgony demanded.
“To fight. The more capable bodies, the better, yes?”
Ahgony regarded her for a few moments, but couldn’t deny the truth of her words. “Must you stay here, Rhoze. You know your skill is to be secret. And, I need someone to protect thine mother.”
