Home of a mother, wife, writer

Welcome back to another visit with the Weekend Writing Warriors, a blog hop for everyone who loves to write. I’m still sharing from Hawk’s story. This picks up from where last week’s left off and is the end of Chapter 3. May be sharing from something else after this since I’ve set Hawk’s story aside while I finish something else. I do still have 600 words of Chapter 4, so I may be able to keep going for a little bit at least. Anyway, here’s this week’s snippet:

I laughed at that and slid my hand along Devil’s back. “We’ll be right out there then.”

Trace’s face was full of color now, and he turned away. Icarus was still shaking his head. “Take care while you’re out there,” he said. “Having Wraith along will help ease my mind, but I don’t want a call from him telling me we need to bring a cage to transport your bodies back here.”

None of the men liked to drive a vehicle, or cage, if they didn’t have to. I couldn’t blame them, as I hated to as well. It would be even worse, though, if it was because we’d been stupid enough to get ourselves killed.

“We’ll do our best.”

Is something going to happen while they’re out? Will they make it back? What’s going to happen next? If you knew that, what would be the point in coming back to read more? 😉

  1. Seems as if you’re foreshadowing trouble to come all right! Enjoyed the snippet and everyone’s reaction to driving a ‘cage’.

  2. I certainly hope they do their best not to get killed!

  3. Yikes. This doesn’t sound promising. Love the “cage” references!

  4. Yikes! Yep–worst reason ever to have drive a cage.

    Thanks for sliding that definition in there. I had no idea!

    Loved the 2nd to the last line–about not getting killed. Good snippet.

    Stupid indeed, but hopefully they won’t be careless. Nice bit of dialogue, Fallon, full of flavor.

  7. Oooooo… Inquiring minds want to know what’s going to happen. Nice snippet
