It’s time for Weekend Writing Warriors! Every Sunday, a bunch of writers post 8-10-sentence snippets from their WIPs on their blogs. There’s a lot of reading, commenting and great writing. Click on the link to see the full list.
Janna’s idyllic country existence is quickly coming to an end. Last week, the old woman’s family arrived, having been kicked out of their house in another town. The next morning, Janna finds Gerda the wife by herself in the kitchen, convinced that Janna is after her husband. Edited to fit.
Gerda turned toward her, holding a wooden spoon like a weapon. “It’s plain as day, isn’t it?”
“What is?” Janna backed into a corner of the tiny kitchen.
“That you’re looking for another man. Useless little thing like you can’t get by without one.”
“I can,” Janna whispered. “I did.”
“Well, you’re not having mine.”
“I . . I don’t want yours; I swear it,” Janna said.
Unfortunately, Janna is no match for Gerda and her spoon, so she and Anton have to hit the road.
