Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors where authors share an 8 - 10 sentence snippet. Be sure to visit the other authors. You can find them here.
Thanks for all your comments on last week's snippet. I'm sharing a work-in-progress, tentatively titled Unpredictable Nature, a romantic suspense about a woman who doesn't believe her brother's car crash was an accident.
Suggestions are very welcome. Please excuse the rogue commas.
Today's snippet picks up right after last week's, which ended with “Can’t I visit my kid sister?”
Maggie put her hands on her hips and gave him the look that could quell a roomful of high school seniors full of themselves for being on the brink of adulthood and sophomores who were just full of themselves. “When you thought I wasn’t going to be home? Try again, Ace.”
Jack cuffed her around the neck. “Okay, you got me--I wanted to try out a new CD on your system.”
She ducked out from under his arm, then hip bumped him, “The truth comes out.”
His combination Christmas and birthday gift to her a couple of years ago was a sophisticated sound system. After he set it up, he’d left detailed—printed, no less—instructions for its use. That was Jack, always covering the bases--heaven forbid, he leave anything to chance, even his sister’s CD player.
