Hey, everyone! Time for another Weekend Writing Warriors snippet. Every Sunday, I join a bunch of writers through a blog hop and post an 8-10 sentence snippet of my current project. You can click on the link to see what everyone else is up to.
I realized I made Snippet 45 without actually putting my link on the official website, so check out the snippet to catch up, since I’m providing snippets from a totally different novel.
To bring you up to speed to this snippet, Lotte tries desperately to get a clingy boyfriend out of her life for good. To her surprise, she discovers that he’s somewhat other-worldly. He creates a storm around her and accuses her and her family of things she doesn’t understand. She wakes up the next morning cold and alone in the park and goes home to sleep. She wakes up to part two of Chris’ actions.
“What the crap, guys!” I gasped. “What are you doing here?”
“We heard you talking in your sleep,” Alex said, his tone serious. He and my other brothers stifled groans as if someone sucker punched them in the gut. “Peder woke up because he could hear you and he was scared. We woke up because we found these.”
He pointed to welts on his neck and the skin under his chin. I gasped because all of my brothers had those little welts scattered all over their skin like rashes.
“What happened to you guys?” I asked. I wish I hadn’t because Peder shrieked in his eleven-year-shriek and both of his hands went to his forehead.
Words will never hurt me, huh? Check out other snippets here. You can also learn more about the novel, Speechless, here. Don’t forget to comment below if you’ve got a snippet to share as well! Compliments and constructive insight are equally welcome.
