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.
Here’s a change of scene: Lotte’s had some time of safety with her family, but she’s not really safe when she’s alone. In this scene, she’s at the grocery store when Christoph decides to pay her a visit.
I turned around, and my guess was spot on: Christoph. It looked like he hadn’t gotten a haircut since, and he gave me such a look of arrogance that it made me scowl. Even in the lazy summertime, he’s still wearing highly fashionable garbage and wasn’t breaking a sweat. His grin blossomed as he read the loathing stare on my face.
“I didn’t expect to ever see that look on your pretty little face,” he murmured, grinning. “It’s so unbecoming.”
I seethed; I had a thousand things I wanted to say or call him, but all I could feel the inkiness in me gurgling at boiling point.
“Get out of here,” I finally blurted hoarsely, hoping that wherever my brothers were, they would understand my rashness. He chuckled as he disappeared and then reappeared to my left; he was playing with me.
“You should be more careful with your words, Lotte,” he chided, “they’re potent, you know.”
Ugh, bullies with magic are the worst. Until next time, 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.
