WeWriWa Snow Angel: A Holiday Short Story

 

 

 

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

This is from a WIP, a holiday short that's a second-chance romance. This one has a bit of a scifi element. Working title is "Snow Angel". I'm continuing where I left off last week. Eva, the female MC, is in her mid-seventies.  Caroline is her niece.  We're in Eva's POV. Last week ended with this:  

      Goodness knows, I didn’t believe my star man when, he appeared at my door two weeks ago. So how can I expect her to?

This week's snippet:    

     Here goes… “It was Zhomas. He fed the birds for me. Then he had breakfast. I made it for him.”

     Caroline gets that look on her face, her head tilted off to the side, eyebrows pinched. It’s not quite pity, and, thankfully, not quite anger either. She says, “Aunt Eva, there was no one here. No visitor from the stars. No man who had to leave to go to his spaceship he left parked behind the moon. How many times do I have to say it?”

A little more if you care to read on:    

     I can’t stop the deep sigh, my chest expanding then falling. I’m so tired of this argument. “He was here.”

 

     That's it for this week. Thank you for all of your kind and supportive words last week. And thank you for visiting! Have a good week!

  2. This must be so frustrating for her. I would probably explode.

    I hope Eva gets some validation soon, because I am 100% on her side! Nice work, my friend!

  4. No one will believe her. People tend to treat older folks like children.

  5. I think her niece is going to have to eat her words. Of course, it does sound implausible, however...we know better. :) Great snippet!
