Welcome to a weekly post of Weekend Writing Warriors. If you'd like to check it out or give it a try, check here at wewriwa.blogspot.com
I'm changing gears and sharing from a holiday short story I'm working on. It's a second-chance romance. This one has a bit of a scifi element. Working title is "Snow Angel". I'm starting at the beginning. Eva, the female MC, is in her late seventies. Caroline is her niece. We're in Eva's POV.
Sometimes Caroline tries to convince me I’m senile. Tries. She’s doing it again. She doesn’t even set my groceries and medicine on the counter before she starts.
“Whose footprints are on the porch?” Her voice is scolding when she continues. “Aunt Eva, you didn’t go outside to fill the bird-feeders, did you? Not in this snow!”
“I most certainly did not. You asked me to stay inside when it’s icy or snowy, and I do.”
I’m telling the truth, and it’s an insult when she accuses me of lying to her.
That's it for this week. I'm sorry for yet another prolonged absence. Hubby's healing is a struggle. Endless Dr. visits. Then two weeks ago, we both caught some kind of bug that sapped our energy--along with giving us both upper respiratory infections. My Covid test was negative--I needed that to go back to work. But I'm back in the saddle again--and keeping my fingers crossed.
Thanks for visiting! Have a good week!
