I'd like to do another character sketch today. Last Sunday we looked at Elaine Lovinggood from Return Engagement who was rather high strung to say the least. Today's character is Julianna Martin from The Welcome Inn. This excerpt is the opening part of the book. Julianna was crossing the courtyard of the motel which she manages, and a man grabbed her. I guess he got more than he bargained for. The Welcome Inn is available at Wing's Press.
The hot, heavy darkness, as cloying as dusty velvet, pressed relentlessly upon the two struggling figures.
"Let me go you pig, you... you... pervert!"
Two well-placed kicks and a jab of the elbow later, Julianna Martin broke free.
"You swine," she raged. "How dare you come to MY motel and attack me!"
She shoved the man’s chest with all her strength, and he stumbled backwards and fell against the stairs leading into the pool.
