In Time: A New Plan

In Time: A New Plan
May 26, 2012 11 Comments Writing Stephanie Ayers

Last time with this story Orvella escaped with Viola Grace through a closet in The Retreat. Need to catch up? Find the whole thing here.

Roderick threw the closet door open.

“Well that was quite a spectacle,” Father Lee said to the empty space within it.

“Should we follow?”

“No. We won’t find them this way.” Father Lee adjusted his clothing and paced the room. A wicked smile appeared on his face. He crossed the distance to Roderick quickly, grabbed his smoking gun and seared his cheek with it. Roderick yelped in pain and crumbled into Father Lee’s waiting arms as one bullet after another pierced his flesh. “No, I have a new plan to defeat that novice and you, my devoted henchman, are it.”

This week’s 100 Word Challenge from Velvet Verbosity was “Spectacle.” Three Word Wednesdays words were: Flesh, Novice, and Sear.

I welcome and appreciate any and all feedback. Please share your thoughts in a comment.

Thanks for stopping in and reading!!

      I think I might be able to do that and switch chest to flesh to stay with the 3WW meme.

    I was going to say the same as Barbara. That phrase doesn’t quite work as is.

    This story has obviously captured your creative juices! Pieces just keep flying at us 🙂

      Yeah I’m on it. I figured out another way to use “flesh” here.

      It is very loud. I have Orvella, Father Lee, and Roderick screaming at me now. LOL

    Oh dear. It looks like Roderick’s devotion is about to be severely tested. Severely tested.

      Yes. This is the fun part of the story: recreating the characters.
