#8SUNDAY Weekend Writing Warriors Post-Esperanza Side Note #LOVE WINS


Good day my friends.  This past week has definitely been eventful.  Let me start this weeks post by stating that I fully support my Gay/Lesbian friends right to marry one another legally.  I truly believe that this is a turning point for America and am proud to say that this is something that God has blessed me the ability to witness in my lifetime.  I’m hoping that no one sees this statement as offensive, but if they do, this is my opinion and I’m entitled to that.

Getting down to business let’s switch over to what you really came here for and turn it over to my Weekend Writing Warrior snippet.

We are a fabulous group of individuals that posts 8-10 sentences on their blogs from a published or unpublished book. Then we “hop” around and leave comments on each other’s snippets.  We welcome EVERYONE’s comments.

Now for my snippet:


Just as I walked into the hallway I caught a glimpse of Gabrielle going into Micah’s room and lifting him from his crib.  As I walked toward the room and stood staring at her from the doorway she looked up at me, her caramel colored skin glowing from the nightlight that sat directly behind her in the rocking chair.

“I want to practice for when you bring my sister home.”  Gabrielle said.

My heart filled with regret immediately.  What would happen if Tylen ever found out that Adriana was actually mine?  Our family would be torn apart and Gabrielle would suffer enormously if she became attached to Adriana.  Early in Tylen and my relationship I remembered wishing with all of my heart that Gabrielle would open up to me and accept me as a stepmother, but until now Gabrielle had kept her distance.  Now that it was finally happening I didn’t know how I felt about it.  There was no turning back if I didn’t end the lie now there would be more people who I loved devastated by my deception in the future.


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

    Oh this is definitely going to change her. I enjoyed that calm before the storm moment, and I fully sensed her anxiety.


  3. Eden says:

    I so hope she makes the honest choice… It seems to me like there is so much love to be had here, if everyone could just settle and admit it to each other.

    And yes! I support love as well. Thank you for sharing it proudly.

  4. She has committed a Sin of Omission that must and will be reconciled before the end or everyone suffers. Wonderful and oh so painful snippet.


  5. She’s so upset, but I get the feeling she’s going to keep lying. Listen to your heart! Tell the truth!

    She’s trapped in her own web of lies. I feel sorry for her, because the stakes are really high.

    Terric internal conflict. She realizes that her actions are much more far reaching. Great job of letting us feel her turmoil.
