Weekend Writing Warrios #8SUNDAY

Weekend Writing Warriors

Hi there friends. Great news!!! I was given the full time position with the Police Department for a telecommunicator!!! I’m very happy about it and I have been working very hard, this past week. I’m hoping that all of you enjoyed your week as well.

This week, I’m writing more on the story I started last week. Sadly, this is all I have been able to do this last week. I’m hoping to have some time to relax and write this coming week. As always, I’m looking forward to hearing to hearing what you think.

When we made it back to the main road, I ran as fast as I could back to the house. I didn’t bother turning to look back, in spite of Sebastian screaming my name at the top of his lungs, I continued running up the side of the mountain that led back to our house, Sebastian obviously losing energy and stopping before I made it halfway up the sloped roadway. When I knew he was far enough behind me, I leaned over and rested my palms against my thighs, to catch my breath and fought off tears as I walked the rest of the way home.

When I turned into the driveway leading to the fence that the guards sat behind, I noticed my older brothers walking toward the fence as the guard went to open it.

“Where’s Sebastian?” Carlos called out, but within seconds Sebastian rounded the driveway behind me, on a bicycle that he must have stolen from someone.

Sebastian threw the bike down against the ground as the gate opened, leaving it outside as he stormed right past our twin brothers and in to the house without saying a word.

“Where’s mommy,” I asked, crossing my arms against my chest as I walked past them sulking.


And that’s it.  I hope you enjoyed it.  Visit my Weekend Writing Warrior friends here.
