8 Sentence Sunday – 11.03.2013

Hello my dear lovelies!

As I mentioned before – Nanowrimo has started me up again on 8 Sentence Sunday! Hosted at Weekend Writing Warriors,  you can participate by posting 8 lines from your story, be it complete or work-in-progress, onto your blog, FB, whatever – and then link back to the site! My 8 sentences will be for my WIP, Cherry Valley, and I do hope you enjoy it!

A bit about the story: Our heroine, Natalie, is a big city lawyer from a small town she hasn’t returned to since she left for university after graduating highschool. To this end, the only people she has kept in contact with are her best friends, Chrissy and Donna, and the occasional visit from her vain mother. Circumstances in the city have made it impossible for Natalie to stay there when our story opens, and so she returns to her home town of Cherry Valley in an attempt to sort out her life and to fulfill a promise to Chrissy who is hiding something and need Donna and Natalie to help her. Going home is never easy, particularly for someone who has made a point to turn her back on home, and Natalie is assaulted with memories of her other best friend, Lily, who disappeared when they were all 16. Delving deep into circumstances of that summer, Natalie begins to receive threats taped to her windshield, leading her straight into the over protective arms of Cole, her sort of one time fling from a decade ago and Chrissy’s older brother. Going home is never easy – but with threats and old loves and a prickly home life – is is deadly, too?

Last week’s snippet was from the beginning – Natalie has decided to leave her job, her home and everything’s she worked so hard for and go back to her childhood home. And because she has worked so hard to accomplish all this, she’s pretty upset over it. This week, she gets a call from the problem of her life, and deals with the very problems of her new reality. Hope you enjoy:

                            Frustrated at her own emotions, she got into the car stiffly and turned on the ignition. Adjusting her rear view mirror so only the slightest corner of the house could be seen, she      

                  placed her shades on her nose and put the little convertible into drive.

                She didn’t glance back once, steadfastly focusing on the road ahead, and the hours ahead of her on the highway. So lost in thought was she, that she nearly missed the jangling

        her cell phone. Turning on her Bluetooth, she answered, “Yeah?”

                “Natalie – listen to me before you hang up –“

                        Natalie tapped the screen to drop the call, the gravelly voice of her boyfriend – her ex boyfriend, she reminded herself, igniting a white hot rage within her belly. Liar. She thought.   

                       Damned liar.

Check out this week’s post for more!

Cheers!
