Good morning and welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors. Click on the link for the list of today’s participating authors. Who knows? Maybe you’ll end up joining the fun! More from The Burning Night this week. I’m skipping a little further from last week’s eight.
Set-up: We learned last week that Melissa and Ashley are being held prisoners by a family of women – Emily and her daughters, Sandra and Ally. Emily has just explained that Melissa and Ashley’s father expelled her daughters from high school, and now she wants to repay the favor. Ashley doesn’t see the point of being imprisoned and she lets them know.
The eight (with some creative punctuation):
Ashley rolled her eyes, snorted and boomed, “You cows are, like, so pathetic…if our dad did anything to you, then go to him instead of keepin’ us prisoners!”
Typical Ashley, always mouthing off at people bigger, even tougher than her. Sometimes her big mouth got her in hot lava at school, and then I’d have to bail her out. The faces on all three of the women tightened, and looked as if they wanted to strangle Ashley – thank God for that glass. I winced as Emily glared at my sister with fiery eyes.
“Oh my tenacious teenager, so much you don’t understand! It’s better to attack a man’s heart – the ones he cares about the most…like his two daughters.”
An uncomfortable feeling suddenly seared in my stomach.
Melissa isn’t taking Emily lightly. She knows she and Ashley are in deep trouble. I think Ashley will soon say, “Me and my big mouth!”
I know many of you want to know more about the history between Emily and Melissa’s father, but that would give away too much. As this isn’t published, I can only give away so much meat. You’ll just have to wait until this comes out.
More from this next week. Well, what do you think?
Have fun today everyone and thanks for visiting my site!
