#8Sunday #SexySnippets #WeekendWritingWarriors: Bear Heart #TheWitchesMischief4

Happy Sizzling hot Sunday, darlings!

I can't believe August is already here. I´m counting the days down to my holidays. I was initially going to travel to the States (Miami and possibly a weekend in NY too) but sadly those plans turned awry. Instead, I´ll be staying at home, resting, reading and writing.

Last week I left you all wondering about the woman with the familiar laughter and our protagonist´s crime. You can read it here, if you didn´t have a chance. Today, I´ve skipped a few lines to have Simon finally catching a glimpse of the women. I´ve cheated a bit and played with commas and connectors to keep to the 8 sentences rule, so don´t freak out if some of the sentences look weird.

 Enjoy! And thanks again for reading!

 XOXO
Elyzabeth

#SexySnippets and #8Sunday Sentences  
 ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

There were two women laughing and running about near the stream, though how they could even move was beyond him for they wore long dresses tapered at their tiny waists and flowing full of ruffles to their ankles. They wore no hats, the offending garment discarded near a tree. He cocked his head, amused at the spectacle. Clearly, these were women enjoying themselves regardless of societal dictatorship.
The youngest girl looked to be 15 or 16 and she had long black hair and a mischievous attitude that reminded him of a playful cat. He focused his gaze on the other woman, his breath whooshing out of his lungs at the sight. She was beautiful with strawberry blond hair that trailed down her back in ringlets and a scaterring of freckles that dusted her arms. She laughed again as the young woman splashed water on her.
 
Simon’s heart constricted. That laughter.

He believes there is nothing left in life for him. That is, until he meets Margaret O'Hare. An unconventional woman, Margaret makes him feel whole again, but he doesn't know if he can allow the walls he has erected around his heart to lower, no matter how much he grows to care for her.

As their time together has them becoming closer, he starts to trust and love again. But a happily ever after might not be in Simon's future as dark shadows emerge to destroy what he has built with Margaret.

  7. Great evocative scene, Elyzabeth. I caught a typo: "scaterring" should be "scattering", and I would change "young" in the last sentence to "younger" since both women seem youngish. Again, great snippet. :)

  8. I like the strawberry blond hair bit; I've used that myself in one of my stories. I get a good image of the women. Sorry your travel plans fell through. Writing is always good, since August is a hot month in Madrid.
