Hey everyone. How’s your week been? Mine’s been pretty good. Lots of possibilities job-wise opening up for me. Gonna apply for another admin job with a little charity here in Bristol (UK).
Anyway on with the task at hand: my contribution to this week’s WIPpet Wednesday. Seeing as it’s the 19th March, I thought I’d share with you another 19 sentences from my new, as yet untitled WIP. The lines follow directly on from last week’s WIPpet.
Rebecca, my MC, is having an unpleasant encounter with a man in an Audi who nearly knocked her off her bike…
It wouldn’t do for the pupils of Radcliffe High School to see their newest teacher let rip at a man who was presumably a parent of a pupil at the school. Or – God forbid – a member of staff.
But it was the Audi driver who lost his control. ‘This is my fault?’ he snapped. ‘You came at me out of nowhere. One second you weren’t there, the next I have to slam on the brakes because a hapless cyclist has acquired a death wish. And don’t you dare tell me that I wasn’t paying attention. I have been driving for twenty years and I have never had an accident. So before you go reporting this incident to your superiors I’d make sure that you get your facts straight.’
Without waiting for a reply he wound the window up and Rebecca only had a moment to grab her bike before the Audi roared off. Shaken she slowly removed her helmet, the rain settling on her long, black hair which she’d coaxed into a practical chignon that morning. Her legs were wobbly so rather than hop back on her bike, she pushed it to the nearby bike shed and locked it with shaking fingers.
‘Are you OK, miss?’ a voice asked.
Starting a little at the unexpected words, Rebecca looked up. A girl of about fourteen was standing there. She was slight, yet tall and had long unruly-looking dirty blonde hair. She also seemed a little awkward. Rebecca felt the need to put her at ease.
‘Yes, I’m fine thank you.’
Anyone can join in WIPpet Wednesday, just share some of your writing and make sure it relates in some way to the date. Then hop on over and add your name to this linky. Thanks to the wonderful WIPpet wizard K. L. Schwengel for hosting.
