Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors

Welcome to Sunday Snippet and Weekend Writing Warriors, your chance to sample snippets from such great authors. My snippet today comes from my current WIP titled Flood. This snippet takes place where I left off last week with a rejected suitor showing up at my heroine's house to see what she and my hero are up to. They almost got into a fist fight, but my heroine prevented it. Ignore the creative punctuation, but if you see anything I should work on, let me know.



What was Jason thinking; they’d never been involved in a romantic relationship. They were friends, nothing more than friends; it didn’t make sense for him to be jealous of Caleb.
Caleb moved to her side. The cold challenge in his eyes had been replaced by a warm, caressing expression. “Why’d you do that?”
“Er, do what?”
“Pick me again.”
Aria sighed.

the question is, did she really pick him? ;-)

It's going to be interesting to hear how Caleb interprets the events as her picking him...

Linda said...

Yeah I wonder, maybe she is going to answer that she was drunk and made a mistake, haha.

Teresa Cypher said...

The plot thickens. He can twist things to his advantage... :-) Good 8, Elaine. :-)

I want to hear the response! Great Snippet.

Sarah W said...

Men. Honestly. :D

I love that final sigh. If I were her, I'd call it a day.

Great snippet, Elaine!

Charmaine Gordon said...

Trapped! Or is she? You have me wondering what's going on and I love it. Thanks, Elaine.

Emmy Gatrell said...

Great 8! Loved the final sigh!

Siobhan Muir said...

Oh man, a cock fight. Sheesh. I think now is a good time for her to tell him to go home for a bit. Great snippet, Elaine.

Veronica Scott said...

Yes, Aria, why LOL? Enjoying the story very much and I hope she explains herself to him soon! Great 8...

Karen Michelle Nutt said...

Gotta love that sigh. You have me intrigued to know more.

Iris Blobel said...

I would like to know as well ... and did she indeed 'pick' him. Well done, can't wait to read more!

Jennifer Reynolds said...

Looking forward to seeing how she responds. :)

Christina Alexandra said...

Oh, I like it!

I'm curious as to what her response will be.

Only one thing threw me out of the story was the use of the word "caressing" when describing his expression. It seems like a tactile action, not a visual one. Other than that, this is a great snippet. Can't wait to see what happens next!
