Hi! Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warrior round. Every week writers post 8 sentences on their blogs from a published or unpublished book. Then we "hop" around and leave comments on each other's snippets. Whether our work is already published or in progress, the helpful comments help us become stronger writers on our next WIP. We welcome EVERYONE's comments.

When Layne got to work she was feeling very unsettled, a situation she blamed Justin for. Her boss went to a seminar in a nearby town and the office was short-staffed.

Layne suddenly got up and looked back over her desk, "is there any place here that says my name?"
"You're wearing a name tag."
"My name tag only has my first name, how did he know my last name?" She looked troubled, "Rita, I'm not an unwed mother, I think my husband may be looking for Dennis."
"Can Dennis stay with you tonight?"
