#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 we get to meet the bane of Cole’s life:

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

For almost an hour, I avoided detection by said ‘letch’ before he finally caught up with me. As I stared at one of the auction pieces, my head tipped to mirror Benjamin’s beside me, the chill along my left side warned of Tony’s arrival.

His chest brushed my arm, lips infringed on my personal space, and breath sweated my ear with his whispered, “Figured out what it is, Cole?”

Benjamin shifted in my periphery, and a step brought him to face me in a way that spoke volumes, especially with his left hand claiming my waist. “Can I help you?” he asked.

Tony’s smirk faltered for a second before his smarmy façade reclaimed his face. As though Benjamin hadn’t even spoken, he turned to me. “I didn’t realise you were bringing a guest, Cole. You should have said.”

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

Letchy etches are such delightful creatures, eh? Come back in a fortnight and I’ll reveal him a little more …

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.
