Weekend Writing Warriors: Saved by a Wallet

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors. I hope everyone has had a wonderful Easter Sunday. My excerpt today comes from the same book I've been sharing with you. After 'misbehaving' when lost in the jungle, my hero and heroine have been captured by desperadoes in military gear. This eight comes right after they checked David's wallet for ID.


“Who is your father?”

David didn’t know if it would be to his advantage to tell or not.  This guy could have a grudge against his father.  After all, with his dad’s political background there was no telling what he might have done that hurt this thug.  Still, what choice did he really have?  “Richard Lovinggood,” he answered.

“Ah.”  Rafael tossed his pants to him.  “You and the woman get dressed.”
You can find more lovely sentences here.

Saved for the moment. To be continued. Proves honest is sometimes the best. . .

Just like the title says, saved by a wallet :-D

Good answer, what will happen next? Very nice snippet!

Whew, huh? Lucky for them it was the right answer! Now I get the title. :)
Nice snippet, Elaine!

Clare Davidson said...

Getting their clothes back has got to be a good sign, right? I really hope it is. I want to know who his father is now!

Veronica Scott said...

Hmm, so we don't know if this is a good piece of news or bad - highly intriguing but at least they can get dressed now. Excellent excerpt!

Saved by daddy - for good or ill we don't know

Sarah W said...

I'm not sure if that's a good sign or not, in the long run . . .

Nice tension!

Siobhan Muir said...

Not sure that's good news or not. Good snippet, Elaine. :)

Jenna said...

Sounds like that may have been the right answer. I sure hope so. Great 8!

Kate said...

I hope it's a saved for good thing and not a saved so they can be tortured slowly thing.

Paula Martin said...

Intriguing excerpt. Think it all depends on the tone of that 'Ah' from Rafael!

Virginia Kelly said...

This could go either way--good or bad. I'm curious.

Great snippet.

Wonder what the connection is between his father and their captors.

Joanne Stewart said...

Ohhh, hopefully that means something good! Great snippet!

gzidar said...

Looks like the bad guys might have some plans for those two.

Susan Stuckey said...

Definitely an interesting 8 sentences.Not sure of the ending - could be he'll be safe ... or just a pause until something bad happens. Well done.

karen Y. bynum said...

Getting dressed means clothes were off ;) Great snippet!

Jennifer Gravely said...

Need to name this book. Such a great story with adventure and romance!

Evelyn Jules said...

That's one of the greatest last names ever! Another intriguing excerpt, Elaine. Great job! :)

Debbie Doglady said...

Sounds like Mr, Lovinggood, (great name!), may have saved the day. Looking forward to the next excerpt.

Ryan Derham said...

Apparently his father did something right. Or wrong, considering the bad guys sound pleased to hear his name.

Claire Gillian said...

I just hate getting captured right after "misbehaving". LOL Wonder if that was the right or wrong answer...

Red Wing citizen said...

So pants were off during the interview. Was Mr. Lovinggood close to his father? Does it matter. And what was the relationship of their captors to the father of Mr. Lovinggood?

Elaine Cantrell said...

Excellent questions one and all. Part of the answer will soon be revealed. Thank you all for commenting, and please do come again.

Heather Boyd said...

I'm not sure if that was good or bad news for the pair. Great snippet!

ED Martin said...

Not sure if they're really safe though - might it get worse ahead? Definitely a good snippet to keep people reading!

Stephanie Burkhart said...
