Weekend Writing Warriors/#SnippetSunday – Pesky Sister

 

Another week of the COVID-19 pandemic gone by! Now it’s time to get your snippet fixings from Weekend Writing Warriors. Click on the link for the official list of participating writers. You’ll also find me on Facebook’s Snippet Sunday. Thanks for visiting my blog!

Continuing from my WIP, Driving Me Wild.  This snippet picks up from last week’s last line: “Ash, you lay one finger on me, and I’ll-”

Let’s see what Ashley does. Creative punctuation has been used to meet the sentence limit.  Here we go!

 

She does a butt-drop on my legs, pinning them down, and then begins tickling my feet.

I explode into a storm of squealing and writhing.

“Who is he, Melissaaaa?”

I hammer her back with my fist as her fingernails relentlessly brush the bottoms of my feet, but she just ignores it. “S-s-stop, yo-you little brat, I-I-I’m gonna kill you!”

“I don’t think sooooo,” she flutes.

Every nerve ending in my feet goes wild like the crowd at Paul Brown after a Bengals touchdown, keeping me from getting her off.

I’m laughing so much that my lungs struggle to get oxygen. “I-I can’t bre-bre-breathe, le-le-lemmie go, you bitch!”

She giggles and tickles in between the balls and toes, sending me into a deeper gale of laughter and flailing as I repeatedly pound one of the throw pillows.

 

Oh that pesky Ashley, and poor Melissa! You may recall in a previous snippet that she mentioned how ticklish she is. And looks like she wasn’t kidding! How much longer can she hold out?

Your feedback is most welcome and appreciated. In return, I will snippets and offer comments. Have a great weekend!

Weekend Writing Warriors/#Snippet Sunday – Tell Me or Else!

 

 

 

 

Welcome to the weekly 8-10 sentence blog hop hosted by Weekend Writing Warriors. Click on the link for the official list of participating writers to get your fix of snippets. You’ll also find me on Facebook’s Snippet Sunday. Thanks for visiting my blog on this Easter weekend!

Continuing from my WIP, Driving Me Wild.  In the same chapter as last week’s snippet, but in a different scene.

Melissa is at home texting her online dating match, Logan, when her younger sister, Ashley, notices. She knows that Melissa is on a dating site, and suspects she’s talking to a guy. Now she wants to know who.

Creative punctuation has been used to meet the sentence limit. Disclaimer: snippet contains coarse language.

Enjoy:

 

Ashley springs to her feet from the sofa. “Oh my God, you, like, met someone on that site, you’re textin’ him!”

Keeping my eyes fastened to my phone, I reply, “I’m texting Cass, stupid, now get lost!” 

“Bullshit, c’mon, who is he?”

I snort and ignore her.

“Tell me who he is or else!”

I look up from the screen and catch her a few feet away from me, beaming, and arms folded with mischief dancing in her eyes. 

Framing a glare with my brows, I slip my phone under the pillow behind me and ball both fists. What makes the little brat think that she’ll beat me up?

“Ash, you lay one finger on me, and I’ll-”

 

Whoa! Looks like Ashley’s made her move. Silly of Melissa to try and lie to her sister about texting her friend. Find out what happens next week! Your feedback is most welcome and appreciated. In return, I will snippets and offer comments. And have a very safe and enjoyable Easter!

Weekend Writing Warriors/#Snippet Sunday – The Question

 

Welcome to the weekly 8-10 sentence blog hop hosted by Weekend Writing Warriors. Click on the link for the official list of participating writers to get your fix of snippets. I’m also participating on Facebook’s Snippet Sunday. Thanks for visiting my blog!

I’m continuing from my WIP, Driving Me Wild.  We’re into a different chapter of the story. Melissa is texting what will soon be her new boyfriend, Logan, via a dating app (they haven’t met in person yet) while shopping in a grocery store. At this point they are getting to know each other. One question catches Melissa off guard, resulting in a faux pas. Creative punctuation has been used to meet the sentence limit. Enjoy:

 

      I wince as the sound of cans clanking into metal carts and whining kids break my concentration. I pass the dairy section, my face glued to my phone, earning me ‘hey, watch where you’re goings’ from shoppers.

      Another question flashes on the screen as I enter the beverage aisle, asking me if I’m ticklish and accompanied by a winking emoji.

      I stub my toes on a stack of boxed soda cans, yelp and hop on one foot, winning a cackle and teasing gestures from a couple of small kids.

      I shift away from them, grimacing until the pain subsides.

      “Oh no,” I moan as I read Logan’s question. My nerves rush like rapids because my feet are extremely ticklish, and one brush with a feather is more than enough to make me squeal and twitch.

      Just great, I finally meet a decent guy on this site, and he’s tickle-happy.

      Three and a half years of random, relentless tickling by my ex is enough, so I end up texting Logan I’m not. “Wait, what I’m I doin’?”

 

Lying to someone you haven’t even met? Not good! Unfortunately, this isn’t the only time Melissa lies in the story. Still, a little humor helps with the COVID-19 situation. Constructive feedback is always appreciated!

I have some happy news to report during these uncertain times. After a couple of months of studying, I passed my travel counselor’s exam this week. This means I can legally sell travel services in my province. I used to be in the travel industry, and I want to return to it after this whole thing calms down.

Happy Sunday!
