Weekend Writing Warriors 8-Sentence Sunday
It’s a new 8-Sentence Sunday and we’re continuing with Carrie and Liam’s pivotal scene from Once More From the Top (go back to the previous two Sundays to catch up if you need to):
“I–I didn’t want you like that—not forced into a relationship with me because we spent one afternoon in your bed. We’d only known each other for a week. It would’ve changed your career. Everything you’d worked for. You–you’d end up hating me,” she stammered, twisting her head away.
“But you didn’t think I’d hate you if you had my baby and never told me?” His hands clenched into fists, turning his knuckles white. “What the fuck is wrong with you?”

Wow, dropped into a very powerful moment in your story! Sometimes the f-bomb works without a hitch, and this is one of those times. 🙂 Great 8, Nan! 🙂
Thanks, Teresa! Am trying so hard to get back into my 8-Sentence routine. Life has been such chaos, it’s been hard, but I think things are settling down some now…
Well that wasn’t an easy choice–but it looks like she made the wrong one!
Nope it wasn’t easy–hopefully, she can fix it… 😉
Great exchange, very realistic love the tension!
Thank you, Gemma! It’s a old trope, but I hope I’ve made it work in a new way.
Congratulations on 40 years! Hubby & I will celebrate 34 in a couple of months so we’re not too far behind you…
Great snippet. Excellent tension!
Congrats, Ann! Thirty-four is quite an accomplishment too! Thanks for coming by!
That’s a tough spot to be in. Good snippet, Nan. 🙂
Thanks for coming by, Siobhan! I love your name, by the way! I’m also an Irish lass.
I’m kind of with him on this one, I must say. Intense snippet.
WOW! Congrats on your anniversary! I love Liam’s reaction here. It’s so real. He doesn’t want excuses and he’s got every right to be royally pissed and to hate her. Hell of a hurdle you’ve set up for them.
Hey, Shannyn. He is very angry and rightfully so…but he wants to understand…
He really has all the reasons in the world to be mad.
Hey Linda, thanks for coming by! Yup, he does!!
