Each week authors from all over and writing in all genres bring you snippets from their work. It could be a work in progress or a completed piece. It could be published or not. But it’s only 8 sentences.
This is from A Legacy of Lies, Book 2 in my Jaguar Legacy Series. So this week I promised to introduce you to Elissa. Up till now you’ve met Jacob who’s trying to locate his missing sister. She’s in trouble, and needs his help, but has no idea where she is. In order to keep to my promise, I’ve taken a couple of liberties this week. I’ve actually pieced two sections of the scene together to give you the first glimpse at Elissa while trying to keep to the 8 sentences (well, I took another liberty here and gave you 9 so I’d finish out the scene).
Jacob is frustrated because he can’t immediately fix the problem. What you don’t see here is her telling him what she believes is happening (sorry, I’ve skipped that part – can’t give away all the secrets ). In the first piece, he’s actually still on the phone with Julia.
Somebody reached up and grabbed his arm. He jerked around to see who had stopped him from breaking his hand against the brick wall. Large, dark chocolate eyes in a round olive-tone face, framed by straight dark hair peered up at him. At five feet nothing, Elissa Amaro, his sister’s best friend, held his large fist in her tiny hand. She shook her head.
… (a few minutes later, he’s now off the phone)
“Jacob, where’s Julia? What’s wrong?”
“Nothing I can’t fix.”
“But where is she?”
Jacob took a deep breath, clenching his fists tight with the need to hit something. “With our father.”
Stop by next week and get to know Elissa a little more.
