Weekend Writing Warriors – The time has come!

wewriwa_button  snippetsun-logo

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors . I hope you’ve been intrigued by this story, now it gets a little bit scary for my heroines. I’m continuing from my last eight. While being imprisoned in a chamber, Melissa and Emily exchange insults. Fed up with Melissa’s attitude, Emily decides that it’s time to carry out her plans for the girls. Here’s the eight:

As she stared at us, her frown quickly turned into a spongy evil grin. “Melissa and Ashley,” she said softly. Her voice deepened as she snarled, “Prepare to be barbecued!”

I trembled and cringed, feeling the hair lifting on my arms. I could tell from Ashley’s sudden white face that the woman’s words made her shudder. Swinging my head from side to side, I tried to anticipate her next move. Ashley clutched my left arm, as her trembling hand sent shock waves throughout my body. Swallowing a breath, I looked up to see the woman pointing her index finger at us, her look reminding me of the witch from the Wizard of Oz.

What’s she going to do to them? Any guesses? Your comments are always helpful and appreciated. Click on the link above for the official list of participating authors. I’m also sharing this on Facebook’s Snippet Sunday Have a wonderful Sunday!

Weekend Writing Warriors – Melissa and Ashley meet the mystery woman

wewriwa_button

It’s Weekend Writing Warriors time again. Thanks for spending part of your Sunday with me, and for your comments from my previous post. Today I’m continuing to share an eight from my short story, Barbecued. This eight picks up from the last line from last week.

Set-up: 18 year-old Melissa and her 16 year-old sister, Ashley, have just been trapped in a steel walled room, and are greeted by their captor.

The eight:

We immediately looked up, and saw a middle-aged woman with curly black hair staring down at us through a circular skylight. Along with her were two young girls, no older than twelve, greeting us with cynical grins.

“Who…who are you?” I asked.

“I am Emily, the owner of this house,” she announced in a deep voice.  “You must be Melissa and Ashley Murdock…you and your parents are trespassing on my property!”

My mouth dropped, and I felt my stomach flutter. “How did you know our names?”

“I knew you were coming, I’ve been monitoring you since you arrived,” the woman answered.

Shocking, no? Just so you know, Emily and her family were evicted from their house by the bank and it is being rented by vacationers. Hence, why Mel and Ashley are there. Next week, we will see what Emily has in store for the girls. Your comments are always helpful and appreciated. I look forward to reading your snippets, too.

Weekend Writing Warriors – 4/28/13

wewriwa_button

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors. Thank you all for spending part of your Sunday to visit my site. I was busy the last couple of weeks, hence my lack of presence on WWW. Next month is going to be even more busy for me, so I will have to miss a few more Sundays. I’ll keep you update when this happens. I’m sharing one more snippet from my short story; anymore and I’ll be giving the plot away. Next week, I’ll be going back to sharing snippets from my novel. In this eight, Sunny is bringing the battered girl to her house, and as they’re driving the girl warns Sunny a looming threat. Sunny speaks first:

“This is gonna sound weird, but you look kinda familiar.”

“Funny I was thinkin’ the same thing,” she admitted. “You shouldn’t be drivin’ me, he’ll find us.”

I glanced at her with a lowered brow and asked, “Who’s he?”

“My boyfriend…he’s lost it this time, if he finds me he’ll kill me…and maybe you too.”

I nearly gasped as I glanced at her bruises, realizing who had inflicted them on her. She looked at me with a serious expression, and then lowered her chin. I grabbed my shirt, clenching the gold cross on my necklace behind it.

Comments are most welcome and appreciated. I’ll do my best to read and comment on your eights. Click on the link for the official list of participating writers.

On a final note, I’m looking to host some bloggers on my site. I would like to host bloggers on Thursdays or Fridays, and I am especially interested in those who can offer advice on writing. If you’re interested, click on the ‘Contact’ button on my site.
