Hello everyone and welcome to my first post as part of the Weekend Writing Warriors.
This week’s snippet (8 sentences I am so grateful for those extra two sentences) comes from a Science Fiction short I have written as part of an anthology project currently underway at Goodreads. If you want to find out more about this project just click here.
This scene takes place just as 16 year old Kira and her 10 year old brother Justin are presented to Talia, the woman who’d organised their kidnapping.
Talia rolled her eyes as the two men fled. “It’s hard to find quality thugs these days… Now, Kira, Justin, I’m sorry they hurt you-”
“No you’re not,” Justin said, cutting the woman off. “You just told them you didn’t care that they hit us.”
Talia’s lips curled into a smile that didn’t reach her eyes. “You’re quite right, Justin. I’m not sorry about that at all.”
There you have it. I hope you’ve enjoyed my contribution to this week’s list, and thanks for stopping by.
