Weekend Writing Warriors entry #11


Another entry for Weekend Writing Warriors. WeWriWa is a blog site open to all authors/writers published or unpublished. Follow the simple instructions on their blog to sign up and then post a snippet of writing on your own blog to join in on the fun.




Continuing with an excerpt from my book Fiendish and I'm picking up again with that. The excerpt picks up in the middle of chapter 3 and I will continue til the end of the chapter.

Last week Calida had started to relax a bit but Seth hit a sore spot when he asked about her sister. We pick up with more dinner conversation.

If you are just joining me, click below to get to the beginning of this exchange.


She was very animated when she talked about her parents, but then got embarrassed when she mentioned wanting to find a relationship like theirs one day.
Calida attempted to ask me questions, but I successfully steered the conversation back to her whenever they got too personal.
“So what made you move to this wonderful city?” I inquired. The smile that previously graced her face faded away. Her eyes dropped to the table then she quietly excused herself for a moment.
I contemplated what could be the story behind that reaction while I waited for her to return. This was the first time I’d spent this kind of time with a subject. There would be some type of first encounter, maybe a second, but never to this extent. 






Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Ooh, you've got me wondering...is he a shrink or some weird psychotic killer who views his prey as subjects to toy with before he starts their torture...

    1. Do you wanna know the answer to that question? It's not answered during the course of this snippet, but the reader knows from the very first page who and what Seth is.
      You can read here to get see for yourself.

  3. I agree with Cara; I'm wondering if she's going to return at all! And now I really want to read this entire story. I may have to move it up on my TBR! Great intriguing snippet, Meka!

    1. Yeah, she kinda has to since he's her ride home.

  4. Now this is becoming wildly intriguing. He thinks of her as a "subject"? And her reaction to the question about the city was very odd. I'm thoroughly intrigued. Great excerpt!

    1. He does see her as a 'subject'. He's not your normal guy and he has a very 'unique' view on the world and the people in it.

      Calida is sweet and a bit innocent, but she's not without her demons. Glad you enjoyed it.

    1. Thanks Teresa. This excerpt shows the nice side of Seth but gives a little insight to his not so nice side as well.

  6. First off, your website is amazing, I love your barbed wire also! As for the eight, amazing. It sounds like Calida stumbled upon something there. What is it? I'm dying to read more. ;)

    1. Thanks! I thought the wire was fitting with the theme. :)

      Over the course of the book, Seth uncovers more about Calida's past relationship and why she ended up moving. Let's just say she hasn't had it easy in love.

    1. She has a bit of a painful past that she really doesn't like to talk about. It's the reason she moved to Atlanta, an escape from bad memories. We won't find out in this chapter, but it is revealed later in the book

      Glad you enjoyed it.

  8. Interesting snippet. I like that she was animated, then got all mysterious on him. It makes me wonder why she moved into the city. And he thinks of her as a subject. Is he an INTJ conducting a social experiment LOL? Just kidding. My mind is running wild with questions, like does she suspect that this isn't a normal date or outing? That he's possibly using her for something? Keeps me motivated to continue reading!

    Keep smiling,
    Yawatta

    1. She really is a fun person once she's relaxed and he noticed that. Sometimes a girl needs to keep her secrets and this (for now) is one of them. You do learn why she moved to the city, she just doesn't tell Seth right away. She thinks the date is normal, her reason for moving is just a sore subject.
