Weekend Writing Warriors #64


Hi and welcome to this week's Eight sentences. Today I am continuing with eight from my new release, 'Fevered Kisses' an anthology of lust. I'm going to continue with the first story 'Between the Pages' starting more or less where I left off last week:

                                               MY EIGHT:

Until that one day in London when I missed my train.

It was raining, it was always raining. Huge drops of water pelted me from a dark grey sky and I ran for cover along with everyone else on the street outside the station. There was a café by a bus terminal and I headed for it, taking my seat at a somewhat grubby table still littered with the previous occupant’s soiled crockery. I had an hour to kill before my next train and I wasn’t about to wander around outside in this downpour. I contemplated going up to the counter and ordering coffee but there was a bit of a queue and I didn't want to give up my seat. I thought I would just wait until everyone was seated then go up. Not that I really wanted coffee, it was dawdling over the last one that made me miss my train in the first place.

Thank you or stopping by today, please leave a comment as I really appreciate it. To visit the other authors taking part today click on the link below:

·        A notebook carelessly left behind reveals secret liaisons of a most intimate nature.
·        An insatiable woman bites off far more than she can chew when four is certainly not a crowd.
·        Sometimes life is just too darn hot but could cooling down heat things up further?
·        Fevered kisses lead to daring thrills for one hungry couple.

  1. Nicely detailed. Love the way you paint the setting.

  2. Totally agree with Cara. Details took me right into the scene, damp, dreary, pouring rain, mess on table and makes me wonder what happens next. Good eight.

  3. The details brought me into the scene and reminded me of a time I was waiting for a train in Porto, Portugal. It was raining there too. Great snippet.

  4. Great job of setting the scene!:)

  5. If you carry this sense of detail through more excerpts, you're going to get yourself a bunch of sales, I think!

  6. Excellent imagery! I was right there with your character.

  7. Oh the problems with killing a little time...sometimes you kill too much and lateness ensues! Her mental banter is fun.

  8. Enjoyed the tone of the excerpt and I could really feel those fat raindrops! I was right there in the scene, can't wait for more.

  9. You did a great job of showing the setting in this scene. I especially liked the detail about the grubby table that she isn't willing to give up. I'm definitely wondering what happened that day in London when she missed her train!

  10. Dawdling over coffee. :-) Wonderful descriptions and lots of information, Gemma. I'm curious what happens next. I think she meets someone. :-) Good 8!

  11. Nice details--you can feel the dreary day. Her attitude definitely makes me wonder if she doesn't actually want to get on the train.

  12. Didn't want to give up her seat, didn't really want coffee, but... I felt the soggy depression of a rainy day. Well Done!
