Of sorts. You might not agree that it’s a confrontation, but it sort of describes this week’s excerpt for WIPpet Wednesday quite well. I hope you’re all well BTW.
Last week I mentioned that I had an interview for a work placement. Well… I GOT IT!! So I’m really happy about that as you can imagine. And thank you all for your kind words, it meant a lot to me. It doesn’t start till the 2nd April though so I’ve got a while to get ready for it.
So back to today’s topic. I’m sharing with you 26 sentences from chapter 14 of Reunion of the Heart. (I’ll leave you to figure out how it relates to the date!!) Anyway at this point Anna has just arrived home from dropping boyfriend Peter at the station. I shared some lines immediately prior to this here. Now she’s got an unwelcome surprise…
‘Anna? Are you all right?’
The voice stunned her especially when she realised whose it was. She felt herself flinch. This was all she needed. She stood up straight, turning to face him.
‘Yes thank you, Will,’ she replied stiffly. ‘I’m just going inside, so if you’ll excuse me…’
He nodded and turned to walk on. But she didn’t go inside. In spite of her fear that he might be stalking her, curiosity got the better of her.
‘Will, wait.’ He stopped in his tracks and turned to face her, his expression unreadable. ‘I… how long have you been living in Primrose Gardens?’ Her voice sounded hostile which was not her intent. But he seemed unfazed.
‘A couple of years.’
‘A couple of years?’ Anna couldn’t keep the surprise or volume from her reply.
‘Yes.’ He looked as though he was suppressing a smile. ‘I didn’t know you were living here though, or I would have popped over and said hello.’
‘But you hate me!’ she cried unable to stop herself. ‘And I hate you. You made my life a misery when we were at school. How could I ever forgive you for that?’
If you’re not currently taking part in the wonder that is WIPpet Wednesday and you’d like to, all you have to do is post some of your current writing work on your blog which relates in some way to the date. Then add your details to this.
Thanks goes to K. L. Schwengel as always for hosting.
