Thank you, everyone, for stopping by my twenty-third Weekend Writing Warriors’ #8Sunday and my fifteenth 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 seven of my suspense/thriller, HIM.
The next step in the evolution of our “relationship” occurred the fall of nineteen ninety-one. He just showed up at the house one Friday around noon sans his kids. Of course, I was in school and didn’t know anything about his arrival. If I hadn’t had a big test the following week in Biology, I would have had plans for the weekend and wouldn’t have gone straight home after school. As it was, I was barely skating by with a C, and Mom was threatening to ground me for a month if I didn’t bring the grade up, so I had no means of escape. She wouldn’t even allow me to go to my grandparents for the weekend—that was how worried she was that I was going to fail the class—and she made this call before he even showed up.
Mom knew I had planned to cram for the test all weekend, I swore to her I would, which meant when I saw his car in the driveway, I knew I had no reasonable excuse to leave the house. My goal quickly became to hide out in my room all weekend and pray he left me alone. I snuck in the house as quietly as I could and eased up to my bedroom.
Thank you for stopping by.
