Hey, everyone! Time for another Weekend Writing Warriors snippet. Every Sunday, I join a bunch of writers through a blog hop and post an 8-10 sentence snippet of my current project. You can click on the link to see what everyone else is up to.
I realized I made Snippet 45 without actually putting my link on the official website, so check out the snippet to catch up, since I’m providing snippets from a totally different novel.
This snippet involves Lotte having a second heart-to-heart with Chris. She finally summons the courage to say what’s been on her mind, but didn’t expect Chris’ reaction to be so peculiar.
“I don’t even believe that I have or had feelings for you,” I spat, “because I think you put them there.”
At this notion, he was furious. I instantly took a step back, because I thought he was going to hit me.
“How did you know?” he bellowed. The bags under his eyes took a dark hue and made him look evil and gaunt. He threw his arm as if he were shoving something to the side. It looked like a swipe in the air, but in reality, some force threw me to the frozen ground and I stayed there.
“How did I know what?” I shrieked from the frozen ground.
“Something about you and your family,” he said, “makes it easy for you to see what isn’t there.” His voice had dropped and I wasn’t sure if it was out of anger or if it were someone else’s voice.
“Now you have my dirty secret to keep, Liselotte.”
Tune in next week to find out just how weird Chris really is. Check out other snippets here. You can also learn more about the novel, Speechless, here. Don’t forget to comment below if you’ve got a snippet to share as well! Compliments and constructive insight are equally welcome.

So is he a mind-reader who can plant ideas in her mind?
At this point, she doesn’t know for sure, but part of it’s speculation and part of it is true. He’s definitely a mind-reader, but he doesn’t have “Inception” powers. He’s just manipulative. 😉
So suddenly she learns that he is far more than he appears – mental powers and churning anger. Dangerous combination! Good snippet.
