It’s a second chance to share a small snippet of my current writing. Most weeks, I tie them back to my WIPpet Wednesday post, so reading both can give a deeper peek…
I’m offering ten sentences today. Howard has come home late, from somewhere he doesn’t want his grandmother to know he was, to find her and his unwanted stepdaughter having tea, seemingly unconcerned with his tardiness.
“Join Us for Tea?”
The child only watched, wide-eyed, while the old woman nodded. “It’s a lovely day. And Airisu is no trouble – as a matter of fact, she made the tea herself, and helped with cleaning the floors at Still Unnamed.”
“The pottery shop. Lovely young girl runs it. She likes old dance movies. It’s the first time in decades anyone younger than you has even mentioned my films. I have to admit that it tickles me some – more than it should, probably.” She paused, then added, “Will you join us for tea?”
Will Howard stay for tea? If he does, will the others be sorry he did? Will his lateness be mentioned? Will his secret activities be discovered? Why is Airisu so quiet and watchful?
We’ll visit Glady’s POV next week, and hopefully learn more.
And a note:
If you came by today for Trip and T’Pol – don’t worry. The two of them still have plenty to share, and they’re rather persistent…I’m sure they’ll hijack a post or two along the way…
