It’s Weekend Writing Warriors time, where writers gather share wonderfully crafted snippets every Sunday. As I’m half Irish, I’d like to say Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Although, I just think it’s an excuse to get wasted while wearing green, but I guess there’s nothing wrong with that.
Thanks so much for stopping by to read my eight sentences. Today, I’m continuing from my YA horror, The Burning Night. This eight picks up from the last line of my previous eight.
My heroines, Melissa and her sister Ashley meet each other in the basement of a rented country house. Ashley wants to know why Melissa has ignored the sign about the no shoes ban (she feels that they’re in someone else’s home) However, Melissa isn’t concerned about some sign. She’s the first to speak.
On with the eight:
“I, like, called you from upstairs, didn’t you hear me?”
Stretching her legs out of the coffee table, she stared at me for a moment then shrugged. “I was listenin’ to Katy Perry on my iPhone…guess I didn’t.”
My mouth dropped open as I held out my arms, giving her a black-layered look.
“What the hell’s your problem, Mel?”
“This house is possessed that’s what!”
She waved her hand dismissively. “Oh Melissa Lauren Murdock, you’re just bein’, like, so delusional…just chill and come sit down with me.”
I think Ashley’s the one being delusional. Too bad she doesn’t know how right her sister is. I’d love to know what you think. There will be more next week. Enjoy your St. Paddy’s Day weekend and don’t forget to visit Weekend Writing Warrior’s site for the complete list of participating writers.
