#FreeviewFriday #MakeBelieve!


Welcome to #FreeviewFriday. This week’s snippet is brought to you from my short story, Escort to Insanity, due to release this December in the Make Believe anthology.

Following on from last time, this week’s leads in with Benjamin rescuing Cole from having to deal with the delightful Angela we were introduced to:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Before either Angela or I could protest, Benjamin’s arm tightened across my back and led me away.
“That was a little rude,” I said, once we were out of earshot.
“Yes, well . . . I’m not here to keep Angela entertained. My job is to ensure you have a good night. And you’d begun to look as though you’d rather be somewhere else.” Benjamin nabbed a flute of champagne from a passing silver tray and handed it to
me, grabbing a second for himself. “Now tell me, why have you come here tonight when you’ve been tense since the moment we stepped through the entrance?”
Because I have no choice. Because my father will probably disown me if I falter in my dance steps to his tune any more than I already have. “I thought being an escort meant you just nodded and smiled in all the right places . . .” . . . whilst warding off letchy exes who can’t accept I’ve moved on.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Me already thinks there is more to this evening than meets the eye …

I hope you enjoyed this weeks snippet. See you next time.

As I have said before, any and all are welcome to join me in this weekly shenanigan. HOWEVER, if you do so, I URGE you to keep the shared snippets short and sweet. Mine will be a maximum of TEN (10) sentences. To help identification of these posts, I shall be hashtagging them (for Twitter purposes) as #FreeviewFriday. Feel free to knick said hashtag for your own Freeview Friday posts.
