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 still sharing from Hawk’s story. I’m only about halfway through writing this, so as long as I don’t catch up to myself, I’ll probably be sharing from this for a while. This week’s picks up a couple lines down from last week’s. I’ll probably share one more snippet from this scene before moving on to the next.

“Do you really think he knew you were the target?” Devil asked. “Surely he wouldn’t have taken it if-“

“Yes, he would have,” I said before he could finish that thought. “He wanted me dead eight years ago. He thought I was, or close to it, when he dumped me in that ditch. He’ll just think of it as finally finishing the job.”

“I still don’t get why your own father would want you dead,” Devil said. “I mean, I know dads can be assholes, but to actually try to kill you.”

Damon’s own father had blamed him for his brother’s death, so I knew just how much he understood, but this went so much farther than that.

So what is Hawk’s father’s problem(other than being a nasty, hateful man)? Is Hawk going to tell them? What are they going to do next?

  2. It really is hard to understand why someone would want to kill their own child. I’m sure the explanation will be interesting!

    • He is a nasty nasty man. And hawk ius about the only one who doesn’t believe his father innocent in hawk’s mother’s death. So that was another reason to want to get rid of him.

  3. And of course now I’m even more wildly intrigued to get to the bottom of the mystery. Love these characters – great snippet!

    This is leading to something BIG. Nice tension, Fallon.

  5. Terrible. Such a great snippet.

  6. Can’t wait to find out why Dad wants to kill his son. Intriguing situation.

  7. I’m getting t he impression that maybe, just maybe, he hails from a dysfunctional family. 😉
