Weekend Writing Warriors #8Sunday

Hi friends!  Welcome back.   I’m writing my piece early this week.  No reason in particular, just attempting to get out of this Snail mindset.  Ugh!  (Maybe it’s the weather.)

Anyhow, now it’s time for WEEKEND WRITING WARRIORS!

Wondering who we are?  We are a fabulous group of individuals that posts 8-10 sentences on their blogs from a published or unpublished book.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 others pages.   Enjoy!



His hand felt warm against my thigh.  I stared at it without saying anything, feeling as though it was slowly burning into my skin like an iron.  My body felt as if it had completely froze, my heart as if it had stopped mid-beat.  My mouth dropped open against my control but no words came out.

“Esperanza, I don’t know how we can make this right.”  Tylen finally said quietly, breaking the silence.

I nodded without looking up, knowing how deeply I had hurt him.  I didn’t know how he would ever be able to look at Adriana or me the same again.

“I don’t want to get a divorce.”  Tylen said and stood up to walk out of the room.




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

    I like that he walks out of the room right after saying he *doesn’t* want a divorce–kinda of going against stereotypical behavior under the circumstances.

    Very intense, Neva. And I agree with Ed. Your last sentence is excellent

  3. I think she might have been underestimating him a little bit.

    Doesn’t want a divorce … there’s an implied “but” hanging unsaid in the air.

  7. He doesn’t want a divorce, but can he manage to forgive well enough to keep the marriage going? Only time will tell…

  8. You’ve shown a ton of emotion in this scene, Neva. Hers and his! Nicely done. I’m glad he doesn’t want a divorce. 🙂
