Once again, I’m in the mood for sharing. I’ve just finished the second chapter of my WIP. Yay! Assuming my brain thaws out sometime tonight, I’ll be able to start working on Chapter Three in the morning. There are still some important things I need to figure out and some major kinks that need ironing, but I’m still at the point where I’m just having fun and not majorly stressing.
Meanwhile, may I present a snippet from Chapter Two:
“Darling, wake up. We’ve reached the Briants’.”
Maria slowly opened her eyes. Every other time she had visited, Michael’s house had been friendly and welcoming. Cozy, even. His house, his family, was the exact opposite of hers in so many ways and she drank in the warmth and sense of belonging she felt here like a starving man set loose on an all-you-can-eat buffet.
But now, for the first time, she felt none of those things. As she stared at the front door and thought about what she had to tell Mr. and Mrs. Briant, a deep and abiding sense of dread quickly overwhelmed her.
