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.
After a brief put painful visit from Christoph, Lotte recovered, but not without the concern of her brothers. This snippet features their response to her first instance of talking after six months of staying silent.
“So what kind of enemy is he talking about?” he asked. “I mean, he sounds like he’s still mad about the breakup.”
I erased what I had and continued, He called me a magic-nixer.
“Never heard of that,” Sam said. “I bet Wikipedia won’t help us out on that.”
He kept saying that I was using him or something—he’s such an idiot.
“So did he curse you as a protection then? Didn’t want you spilling secrets about himself—that he has magic?” he asked, “because any one of us can do that, so his reasoning is lost on me.”
I sighed and shook my head, I think it’s probably deeper than that. Revenge for something I apparently did that sent him over the edge. I’m screwed forever.
Sam is always there for his sister, and you know he’s gonna figure this out for her somehow, someway.
