Weekend Writing Warriors ~ 6 November 2016: The Locket


Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors, the weekly hop for everyone who loves to write! Every Sunday wonderful authors post eight to ten  sentences of their work. Please show some love by following the links and reading. Comments are always appreciated.  My clip this week carries on from last week, after Beth had spoken to George.

George realized that Beth had rallied up a lot of courage to come and see him and speak so openly to him about her worries. After all, he hadn't spoken to Jake for about three years, ever since their big argument. He remembered though, that his wife, Grace, just before she died, had made him promise to make up with him. She'd have known what to say to Beth and how to cope with her son. He missed his wife so much.

After retrieving a small bottle of brandy from a cupboard, George poured a small amount into a glass. “I keep a bottle in for medicinal purposes,” he explained. “I thought you could use a drop.”


As Beth said thank you, and reached to take the glass from him, however, her purse dropped from her lap and fell open. A photograph of a small girl with curly hair fell out of it.

  1. I already like George.

    Intriguing ending--I wonder who the little girl is. :-)

    Did you miss a word in this sentence? "He his wife so much."

    Good snippet, Naomi!

  12. Sounds like he hasn't been able to keep that promise to his wife yet. Family can be tough! Whoops, she just let something slip she probably didn't mean to.
