Weekend Writing Warriors and Snippet Sunday

Welcome to Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors, your chance to read excerpts from a talented group of authors. This excerpt from my current WIP Flood. It picks up where last week left off. In that excerpt my heroine picked one man over another to go river rafting with, and the one not picked showed up at her house to check things out.  This is unedited so if you see something give a yell.



Caleb lazily got to his feet. Oh, crap, he had a cocky expression on his face. Surely, he wouldn’t start anything at her house. His eyes bored into Jason’s. “Do you ordinarily butt in when you’re not wanted? She’s being polite, but can’t you tell she wants you to go and give us some privacy?”
Jason’s fists clenched as his face turned red. “Watch your mouth, Hawkins.”
"Or what?"

Who's starting what in her house? Ah the arrogance of men. Great snippet, Elaine. :)

It's a great read. The only thing I'm seeing is a mechanical issue. I would put a paragraph between these two sentences.
His eyes bored into Jason’s. “Do you ordinarily butt in when you’re not wanted?"
That's it. Other than that, fantastic!

Well... that ratcheted up quickly. Very nice.

I bet we can all guess "or what", but that doesn't lessen the tension...great excerpt and I'm on the edge of my seat for more.

Carrie-Anne said...

Sounds like a fight is brewing!

Linda said...

Oh wow, are they gonna fight right there? I would kick both of them out!

Charmaine Gordon said...

Kick them out and start again with two or three other guys. That's what I'd do in real life. Now in fiction, you begin with conflict and you've grabbed all of us.Written so well.

And so it starts. This is so real, Elaine. The dialogue is perfect. I could see (and hear) it happening. Nicely done!
