Weekend Writing Warriors 8-Sentence Sunday #13
It’s that time again! This week’s snippet comes from one of my two new books (both are due out this summer). ONCE MORE FROM THE TOP is Carrie and Liam’s story, two people who had a very brief, but passionate love affair and then are separated for 16 years. In this snippet, Liam is wandering around Carrie’s Uncle Noah’s marina. In the bait shop, on a public bulletin board, he discovers a photo of a boy who looks almost exactly like his own nephew and it gives him pause…and then…
Didn’t they say everyone has a twin somewhere? Jamie would probably get a kick out of knowing that his was here in Michigan.
He started to pin the picture back up when his heart began to pound in his chest and his mouth was suddenly dry. Stepping out into the sunlight, he stared at it again. The boy looked to be about Jamie’s age, fifteen.
Fifteen…oh, Jesus, no way!
His hand shook as he tried to swallow the fear that welled up in his throat and attempted some quick calculations in his head. Fifteen years and nine months ago, he and Carrie Halligan were in his bed in Montreal.
