This is Weekend Writing Warriors, the weekly snippet-sharing blog hop. Go to the website for the list of participating authors. Today is also my birthday! My fourth in the United States, and I’m celebrating it with my surfing club. I won’t tell you how old I am, though.
I’m offering another snippet from The Burning Night. This is an earlier scene from the previous snippets. Here, Melissa’s mother comes into her room and informs her that she and Melissa’s dad will be going out for the evening, leaving Melissa with her sister, Ashley. This is in Melissa’s POV.
A waft of perfume floated across the room. Estee Lauder. It had to be. It was her favorite.
“OK, have fun,” I deadpanned. She pushed my hair away from my face. A tingling of peace raced through me as her fingers trailed down my cheek.
“Come on sweetie, what’s really bothering you?”
“I’m…really scared, Mom. Somethin’ about this place, like, creeps me out, I…I dunno what it is.”
Too bad her mother thinks it’s all in Melissa’s head. You kinda feel for Melissa at this point. Well what works, what doesn’t? Thanks for visiting my blog. I probably won’t get to commenting until tonight, given my busy day today.
