Thank you, everyone, for stopping by my eighteenth Weekend Writing Warriors’ #8Sunday and my tenth Snippet Sunday post. If you want to read more excerpts from other authors or to join in the fun, stop by both blogs and peruse their sights.
Today’s excerpt comes from chapter one of my upcoming suspense/thriller, HIM. In this scene, Amy and her mother are having one of many discussions about the man Amy has repeatedly told her mother is molesting her. As you can see, Amy’s mother doesn’t believe anything is happening. (I played around with the punctuation and altered the scene a bit to fit the WWW guidelines.)
“Don’t start this again,” Mom warned me, “you leave your uncle alone.”
Oh, I planned to stay as far away from that man as humanly possible. The problem was that her brother, my molester, never left me alone. That man seemed determined to find me wherever I hid.
“You said he wasn’t going to be here,” I snapped, realizing, not for the first time, that this might be a trap.
“And he isn’t going to be, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make trouble by spreading your lies. Your uncle has had a lot on his plate lately with Mathew robbing that bank last year and going to jail and all. Poor man, so, don’t you go making any more trouble for him.”
