Welcome Warriors, and Snipsuns, and anyone else who wanders in. Happy Easter and Passover. I hope you're all enjoying time with family and friends. I am. Cooking for a crowd, so I'll make my rounds later today, or early in the week.
Are you doing the A to Z Challenge? If so, please leave a comment so I know to visit you! :-) And if you are, how're ya holding up? The home stretch isn't quite in sight yet, and it's begun to feel like it's sucking the life out of me. But I can't quit. lol. You either! Hang in there. You can do this!
Weekend Writing Warriors is a weekly bloghop. Each week, participants sign up HERE at wewriwa.com, then post 8 sentences of their work, published or unpublished, to go live between noon, Saturday and 9:00 AM Sunday EST. Then we visit each other and read, comment, critique, encourage--all those things that do a solitary writer's heart good.
Snippet Sunday group from facebook--not us, but many of our participants do both, can be found HERE
Set up. I've continued where I left off last week. Drave had just informed the Port operator (after he'd asked if he could sit in the empty chair at their table), “I’d see a man gutted and bleeding out before I’d let him hurt one of my companions.”
Before Kad could try to break the stare-down between the two men, Tayden’s voice, even and calm, spoke from the darkness beneath his hood. “But of course you can.” Then, as his head turned back and forth between Kad and Drave, added, “What kind of people would we be if we couldn’t break bread with our brother?”Kad glanced at Drave, almost afraid of what his response might be. He exhaled when he realized that his friend wasn’t going to respond to a question that had never really sought an answer anyhow. He held out his hand to the operator while he stumbled through an awkward welcome. After they’d clasped hands and tipped their heads forward to show respect, the operator held his hand out to Drave. Kad bit his tongue to keep from telling the operator he could have saved his effort.
That's it. What jumps out at you, good or bad? I'd love to hear it.
Thank you so much for reading this. Have a good week!
