12/1/13 WEWRIWA a community of writers and readers

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 Every week writers post 8 sentences on their blogs from a published or unpublished book.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.
See more at the WeWriWa blog.

We're jumping quite a bit ahead in the story. Adam has tried, and tried, to push Davie away, but he fears he's fallen in love with her. Pushing her away again during a bout of pneumonia nearly killed him, literally. While recovering (with Davie's help of course), he resolves to let Davie know how he feels... if she'll have him.

"You said earlier that you wanted to talk."

"Yeah. Davie, this is really important…"

Davie knelt on the carpet next to the couch, "I'm here."

Adam twisted to face her, he realized he was having difficulty finding the right words to start. "It's about us, I want there to be an us, I don't know where this relationship will wind up, but suddenly I find myself thinking of tomorrow…with you, I never meant for that to happen."

"Why does that scare you?" Davie spoke softly.

"It scares me that you might not want to be a part of it," Adam swallowed and looked uncomfortably around the room, he realized that this could be the most important thing he ever had to say. His eyes finally settled on Davie, "Davie, there are some things I have to tell you about my past, some things that may make you walk out and never look back."

It's a good thing that Adam opens up to Davie because in the coming days his past comes crashing in and he winds up fearing for Davie's life.

Next week I am going to start featuring snippets from one of my other works.

The original Courage of the Heart was published in 2001; in 2009 Vanilla Heart Publishing re-published a slightly modified version. Since then VHP has published a total of  ten of my novels, the most recent one being Karma Visited. As I look back I can see how much my writing has changed (hopefully for the better) and posting these snippets and reading your wonderful comments has been very helpful as I start work on my 11th novel.

You're going to another story next week? Aww! What a place to leave us with this one. Interested to see what you treat us with next time.

Veronica Scott said...

I'm glad he's opening up to her! And I must admire your leaving us there, in suspense LOL. Great snippet!

Charmaine Gordon said...

Excellent and touching moment with a suspenseful ending. Another tasty treat in Chelle's platform. Thanks for this one.

Sue Ann Bowling said...

Somethng about his past is worrying him, that's for sure.

Teresa Cypher said...

Wow, good cliffhanger! I echo Marcia's sentiment! lol. I have to read this. :-)

Unknown said...

Oh my, what a way to leave us hanging. But it is such a sweet spot. Glad he's opening up to her!

Very intriguing. Secrets indeed! What will he have to say?

Chelle Cordero said...

Yes, I left you all with a cliff hanger, but I didn't want to give any spoilers here. What Adams tells Davie is very significant but it is something he needs to let her know.
Hope everyone had a great weekend.
