In the last two or three days, I haven’t written a lot. Probably, I needed a break, but it doesn’t feel right. My e-social life on the other hand has thrived and I had time to read the remarkable words of some fellow authors. And that is all good and well.
Today snippet is from TCOM again. Verena has just showed Marie her new living quarters at Redfarm.
Marie shrugged at the recent memories. Idra had saved her from the ire of an elder more than once. “When I’ll be an elder, I’ll never be like them.” A promise she had worded every time Idra had rescued her. Idra. What are you doing now? Dinner time at the Institute had already come and gone. Are you singing by the fire with Joanna and Marcia? They had sung every time one of their friends had left the Institute to learn a profession somewhere else. Are you singing for me? Do you miss me already? Marie had been so excited to leave the Institute, she hadn’t realized she was indeed leaving it for good.
“I never thought bathrooms could get people so emotional.” Verena laughed.
Marie got a glimpse of herself in the mirror and saw her eyes were liquid and a tear was hanging to her eyelashes. “The separate stalls undid me.”

I love that last bit of dialogue! It’s so sarcastic. Marie really is very witty. I like the way her thoughts about her old life show her feelings. Great snippet. Thanks for sharing 🙂
Thank you, Clare 🙂 I haven’t done a lot in the last few days, but I got this snippet at least 😉
That’s more than me! I haven’t even written enough for a snippet this week 😦 Hopefully next week will be more productive.
Life can get underfoot that way 🙂
I like how you build intrigue and I agree with Clare, I loved the last line!
Thank you, Ruth. I have lots of fun writing Marie’s lines 🙂
