I’m sharing snippets from a wip called The First Nation. Last time I checked in with the Weekend Warriors, Raveena (our mc) had just left work and had returned home, to find her quarters–in which she lives with her family–strangely quietly.
I didn’t get a reply as I stood on the stool, reaching into the highest cabinet, the one that brushed the ceiling for my favorite mug. It was blue glass, see-through and chipped, but I’d had it since I could hold a cup. I filled it at the sink and drank as I wandered to my parents’ room. The door was closed. I knocked with the mug. “Everything alright?”
“No,” my mother replied, voice scratchy. “Come quickly.”
That’s my 8! Now, get on over to the Weekend Writing Warriors and check out some other great 8s. :)
