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 snippet this week carries on my WIP, The Locket with a bit more from George and Beth.

An uncomfortable silence filled the room and surrounded them for what seemed like an age. Then George shifted in his chair a bit and his low tones cut the air.

Listen Beth, I appreciate you coming to see me so much and to ask for advice. I've always been fond of you, and as for your husband, that son of mine, I've loved him since the moment he was born. Always have, always will, despite everything.

Why don't I make us some coffee, we'll think this through rationally and try and make sense of the situation. After all, you don't want to go home tearful, and breathing alcohol over Chloe. Where is she right now?

Beth glanced at the clock over the mantel. “She's at a friend's house this afternoon. Yes, Ihave time for a coffee before I go, thank you for your kindness and understanding.”

  6. I missed earlier snippets, so I assume that Beth didn't get on with her father-in-law previously, from the comments above. Clearly he is trying to help smooth things between Beth and his son...or is he? Look forward to reading more.
