Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors, and Happy Valentines to all ! Click on the link if you want to know who’s participating, and/or how you can participate too! Thanks to everyone who commented on my post last week; it was great to reconnect with you all after a long absence!
I’m sharing another excerpt from Room For Three. With the arrival of Joey’s sister looming, Mike wants to know why she’s not too excited. This is all in Joey’s POV:
Mike sits down in the armchair next to me as I take a sip from the mug without asking what’s in it. I know right away it’s Irish Cream coffee, and the mix of whiskey, cream, coffee and sugar instantly dances on my tongue. Mike gazes at me with his emerald Irish green eyes, tingling me all over.
“I get the feelin’ you’re not thrilled about your wee sis joinin’ ya at school,” he implies.
My lips stretch ear to ear briefly before I turn my head to one side.
“Ah c’mon, she’s family,” he tucks a strand of my hair behind my ear. “I know you’ve had your battles in the past, but ye must look forward, now.”
He clutches my hand, and the warmth of his fingers races through my skin. Little does he know about my battles with Sarah. I didn’t put a lock on my bedroom door for nothing.
The last line says a lot doesn’t it! Sarah isn’t exactly the nicest person in the world. I’ll share a snippet next week with her in it. Your feedback is most appreciated. I will do my best to read everyone’s snippet today, but it will likely be later in the day when I can as I’m out hiking today.
I’m taking the Miller Analogies Test tomorrow, which the final requirement for my PhD application. Wish me luck!
Remember that Valentines Day isn’t just about the cards, candies and candlelit dinners. It’s about showing your lovey how much they mean to you. Do something special, something they would not expect!
