It’s Sunday again, and time for Weekend Writing Warriors (click on the logo above) and Snippet Sunday (click on the logo below.) Today I’m posting 8 sentences from my first published book, Homecoming available in all formats from Amazon, Barnes and Noble and iUniverse.
This is a continuation from last week, when Derik joined the boys at the table where they are all eating (or rather cramming in food) to counter esper shock. A little creative punctuation has been used to adhere to the 8 sentence limit.
Roi’s head was down and he looked miserable.
“Do you understand what happened?” Derik finally asked.
“Something in my head lashed out at Nik and you. It wasn’t deliberate; I thought I’d fixed it so that wouldn’t happen again, but somehow it did anyway. I’m sorry, really I am, but I don’t understand why it happened.”
“Again?” Derik said sharply.
Roi seemed to pull in on himself even more. “I think I killed a man once, an overseer,” he said tonelessly.
So it wasn’t intentional, but what can they – or Roi – do about it?
