Home of a mother, wife, writer

Welcome back to another visit with the Weekend Writing Warriors, the blog hop for anyone who likes to write. I’m making progress on Hawk’s story, but I’m still going to share from Staring at the Sun through the end of this month. I have 10 sentences from a couple scenes after last week’s. Icarus and Cassie were out riding and stopped at the local grocery store where they ran into her estranged husband(who is not a nice guy). This is from the husband’s POV. Hartson/Grady = Icarus. henry= the husband

“Come on,” she said softly, “he’s not going to do anything to us. We’ve done nothing wrong.”

“Don’t be so sure, Cassandra. I’m going to take that gang down.”

Hartson looked about ready to snarl something at him again, but Cassandra gave his arm a little tug. Grady turned toward her, and Henry was taken by surprise at the warmth in his eyes. “Come on,” she said again, “we’ll go. He’s not worth it.”

Those words had the air rushing from his lungs, then a fire started to build inside him, but the two of them were already climbing back on the bike. They might be getting away today, but he would find a way to take them down; all of them.

Why does he have such a problem with Grady? Why does he call the Riders a gang? Is he going to cause trouble for them?

In some related news, I made up a cover for Dance with the Devil Friday. And I’ll be starting to post it to Wattpad next week. For now, here’s the cover and the summary I put up on Wattpad for it.

Damon, better known as Devil in his new life, has fought the enemy, but nothing has been a bigger battle than his feelings for his best friend, Hawk. Surrendering to them could mean losing his place with the Riders of Justice, more family to him than the one he was born into. And he isn’t sure he could take that.
But, finding a way to be together is a mission Hawk isn’t willing to retreat from. Will Devil have to choose between the man he loves and the family he’s made? Or will he be able to find a way to have it all?

  1. Henry sounds rather nasty. And obssessed. Those two attributes should make for interesting behaviour. Great scene, Fallon.

  2. Uh oh, the menace to come from Henry is quite clearly foreshadowed here – excellent snippet!

  3. I love how you describe his anger. I have a feeling it’s justified!

    • Icarus’ anger is definitely justified. This isn’t the first time Henry has threatened people he cares about. And he knows how Henry treated Cassie and their son when they lived with him.

  4. Quite a chilling snippet, I don’t think I’d want to be on the receiving end of his anger!

  5. I detect the birth of a new goal for your character.

    Foreshadowing, a warning that they’d better heed. Good job ramping up the tension.
