Weekend Writing Warriors: Dex Continued

Back again after a quiet month, and with new Jasper content for Weekend Writing Warriors.  This picks up immediately after this scene with Dex and Lilith in the abandoned park.

It’s simple and fun. Sign the linky list with your name, blog url and email address on Mondays, 8:00 AM EST. Each week, the list remains open until Saturday, 11:59 PM. Then on Sunday, post 8 sentences from a current writing project, published or unpublished. Visit other participants and offer opinions, critiques, support. Writers hanging out with writers, a good time with a great group of people.

Previously, Dex confided in his wife all of the doubts that he had about his new promotion and the case assigned to him.  Mayor Calvin is playing a game with him, he feels, and it wasn’t likely to end well.

“What am I going to do now, Lil?  No matter what, I’m not safe.  And neither are you or Natalie.”

Lilith swung backward, thinking for a moment.  The corroded chain squeaked as she moved.  “The way I see it,” she finally said, “If you’re in danger either way, you might as well do whatever serves your conscience better.  Which option does that for you?”

“I was hoping for an option that saved my life.  I’m no good to anyone dead.”

I’ll continue this scene next week.

  1. Oh, I like it! Great way to leave it in a hook. I definitely want to know more about this situation.

    I like the bits of realism. The squeak of the chain and her movement on the swing. Also, the seriousness if the situation plays out well with just the dialogue. No need for motion or descriptive movement on Dex’s part.

    Great eight!
