Still making the weekly blog hop Weekend Writing Warriors a biweekly event here, but at least I’m consistent! If you want to know more about it, click the link or the logo to read about it and get your link listed.
I have the next snippet from my WIP. Currently titled STOPPING BULLETS, it’s the story of a young woman, Justine, with a talent for stopping bullets and moving other things with her mind. She lives a secretive life to avoid becoming a lab rat somewhere. But her secret isn’t going to remain a secret much longer.
To update: two weeks ago, Justine was berating herself for thinking more of herself than Quinn’s injuries. But she gets over that quickly. After all, her anonymity is more important. (For the full story so far, start with the Six Sentence Sunday posts! The first one is here.)
We ended the last snippet with Justine asking herself, “So, why didn’t you run when you saw Quinn?”
And here are the next eight:The front door opened to save me from answering my traitorous brain and swept in chilled air. And Quinn. For a moment, I held the coffee pot in midair as my own chill passed through me. I shook it off and poured Quinn the cup he always asked for. I tried for a smile, but my face felt like it would break. My eyes darted to Maria, refilling a customer’s coffee. By the smirk on her face, she hadn’t missed Quinn’s entrance, even though her eyes were on the cup she was pouring. Boy, did she have the wrong idea.
Work in progress here, but I’d love to know what you think!
