Weekend Writing Warriors
This week I have another snippet from my WIP The Locket. While Jake is away at his conference, his widowed father has an unexpected visitor.
George shuffled, heavy footed in his worn out old slippers to the front door. On the doorstep, stood a woman in her latter twenties, of medium height, with soft dark curls that tumbled down over the shoulders of her white Macintosh. George recognized her immediately as Beth, the wife of his son, Jake. He could tell something was wrong, however; the usual sparkling blue eyes seemed to be fighting back tears, and her full pink lips had a tremble in them.
“Hello George,” she finally managed to mumble. I hope you don’t mind me calling unannounced. I didn't know who else to turn to”
“Well, I must admit, you're the last person I expected to see, but you had better come in." He smiled and ushered Beth inside.
