Posted by Tina Christopher
Welcome to the Weekend Writing Warriors, the perfect place to discover new authors and fall in love with their writing. Each Sunday we share 8 to 10 sentences from a current or finished manuscript. Click here for the rest of the amazing writers participating.
I’m now calling this story Blindsided, but it will be only a working title. There are a number of books already released with this sane title;). This snippet comes a little bit after last week’s. Ana has left Jace’s garage after he (hopefully) fixed her car. As much as she enjoys his presence she doesn’t plan to see him again until she discovers that Reacher, Jace’s dog, has stowed away in her car. She phoned Jace to let him know. The last line was “I have Reacher.” We’re in her point of view.
“Silence echoed across the phone line.
“Not sure how, but he must have climbed into the backseat while we were at the office. I didn’t know he was there until I opened the back door to grab my stuff and he slobbered his kisses all over me.”
His stillness took on a different tenor. Where before it had reverberated with demand and a touch of accusation—and damn did he know how to wield silence—it now grew more relaxed. “He’s never gone for a ride with someone like that; Reacher must really like you.”
She stroked the dog’s head and he groaned with delight. “That goes both ways; I am very sorry I didn’t check my backseat before I left.”
His shrug practically transferred through the line. “Things happen-do you want me to come and get him?”
What works, what doesn’t?
Happy Sunday and have a fabulous week! And here is some more research:
