Welcome to a very wet and windy WIPpet Wednesday. Well it is here in the UK anyway! 😦 Or at least the sun is shining now but it’s been horrible all day until now. Anyway for this week’s WIPpet Wednesday I thought I’d share with you one of the many flashbacks that my MC Anna has in Reunion of the Heart. For the 12th February I’m sharing 12 lines from chapter 2.
In the present, Anna is at her school reunion and she and best friend Melissa have just been reunited with their school friends Lizzie and Rachel who they haven’t seen since school.
In this excerpt, in the flashback, you can catch a glimpse of why they fell out at school and hadn’t made up until now, many years later. I’m not going to say too much more than that. So without further ado, here’s my contribution to this week’s WIPpet Wednesday:
‘What the hell do you think you’re playing at?’ Melissa had demanded of Lizzie, marching up to where she was sitting eating her lunch at the edge of the school playing fields and tapping her on the shoulder. Anna was trailing in her wake.
‘I’m sorry, but when did you become the boss of my life?’ Lizzie had replied. ‘Oh yeah, that’s right, you’re not!’
‘You know what Matt’s like, you know he’s a nasty bastard who’s given our friend hell and yet you still choose to start seeing him.’
‘It’s my life; I can do what I want!’ Lizzie retorted. ‘And anyway, when are you ever going to let Anna speak for herself? There she is, cowering behind you…’
‘I’m not cowering,’ Anna said in a quiet voice. ‘But Melissa’s right, I do have a problem with you dating Matt. He’s made my life miserable for five years of secondary school.’
And if you aren’t taking part but would like to, just post on your blog whatever you’re working on with your writing and add it here, where all the other wonderful WIPpets for this week can be found too.
Thanks goes to the most gracious hostess of them all K. L. Schwengel.
