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, where we share 8-10 sentences from a project and sometimes get creative with punctuation. 😉 I’m continuing Hawk’s story, picking up from where last week’s left off(“Yes,” she said, “it’s back this way. Can you tell me anything?”)

“When we get into the cage.”
I felt Noah jerk away from me, but I barely glanced at him. “Car,” I told him, “not an actual cage.”
“Feels like one when you’re used to being on a bike all the time, though,” Barbie said, cracking a grin even though I could tell she was still worried.
“Yes, ma’am,” Noah said quietly.
“Oh, Hawk, your new friend is polite; that’s a breath of fresh air, isn’t it?”
My lips quirked up slightly at that. “Funny, Barbie, really, and he’s not exactly a friend.”
“Really, and what’s Devil going to think about that?”
“Stop, I’ll tell you everything when we’re on our way home.”

    Great dialog, Fallon. Love the back and forth. It fills in the scene very nicely. What IS Devil going to think?

  2. Barbie sure jumps to conclusions! But interesting conversation, enjoyed the flow…great snippet.

  3. Noah wasn’t very polite when he was talking to Hawk, but I suppose that’s a brother thing. I am certainly interested to see how things will go when he meets Devil.

  4. The fact that good manners are worthy of remark tells you something about their milieu.

  5. Lot’s of personal reaction here. I’ll definitely tune in next week.

  6. Entertaining snippet!

  7. Well, the banter is pretty light-hearted, but what’s brewing beneath the surface?

    Good banter, even if Barbie’s a bit snarky. That ride home is going to be interesting.

  9. And the tension mounts….

  10. uh oh! Misunderstandings ahead. 🙂 Poor Devil. Might take a bit to work this one out.

    • Oh yeah, I’m sure there will be. Devil will have something a bit more important to deal with when we see him again, though. 😉
