It’s a second chance to share a small snippet of my current writing. Most weeks, I tie them back to my WIPpet Wednesday post, so reading both can give a deeper peek…
This snippet follows immediately after last week’s WIPpet, Did It?”
Can Kifo Island help three generations of a wounded makeshift family coexist despite the forces and secrets that tear them apart, or will time run out for the dying grandmother, the abusive stepfather, and the brilliant, traumatized little girl caught in the middle?
I’m offering eight sentences today. Airisu has run away, after a troubling interaction with her stepfather. Now, she’s pondering his parting words, and their implications.
Caution – Potential Triggers….
It Wasn’t the Knife
But Airisu had known; she could tell. He was dangerous, just like all the other johns who came to Aijo.
He was the most dangerous of all.
She couldn’t tell. She wouldn’t. Because of his words.
“Whores don’t have friends, Iris; you’ll lose them all, if they know…”
It wasn’t the knife that had frightened her; it was the blade of those words.
Is what Father Howie said true?
Will he find out that she’s run away?
What happened to Airisu, and will she be safe?
I’m only 4 scenes from the end of this novel, now, so all will be known (to me), by the end of the novel. Everyone else will have to wait a while….
