It’s Sunday again – where does the week go? – and I’m once again joining in the Weekend Writing Warriors hop. This week, since I’m working up to going back to rewrites on Psychic Shadows, I thought I would ‘go back to start’ and share an excerpt from one of the early chapters. This shows Shannon and David reaching their first uneasy truce – how long do you think it’ll stay ‘strictly business’? 🙂
Her gaze held his for a long moment; he found himself shifting uncomfortably but he didn’t seem capable of looking away from those hazel eyes. They had tiny gold flecks in the centre and he had the oddest feeling that they were looking inside him. Right down into his soul, and he really wasn’t sure that was such a pretty place anymore. Then she nodded sharply once.
“Fine, but we’re equal partners in this investigation, you share all credit with me and I want complete honesty to any questions I ask. That is my only and final offer, and if you go back on it then I don’t care how high up your friends are, I will make your life a living hell.”
He nodded, but she barely acknowledged it before she was turning away. Her voice was back to brisk and professional as she stalked towards a nearby desk, issuing a stream of instructions as she went. David stared after her. He’d got what he wanted so why did he rather feel like he’d been pole-axed – like she’d seen inside him and taken his measure.
Really hope you enjoyed 🙂 I’ll leave you with some writing motivation for the week ahead (or a rather worrying glimpse into how things are going for me so far!).
