(Warning: I think this is a painful snippet, dealing with the fear of loss.)
Welcome, welcome to Snippet Sunday-ers and Weekend Writing Warriors. Last Swashbuckler snippet (at least for now). I have three more scenes to write before I’m finished then I’m putting it aside. . . I’m ready to start something new which I’ll be posting next next.
WHY THE ANIMALS at the bottom of the post? This snippet makes me sad. And if it makes me sad, it might make you sad. And I didn’t want you leaving my blog sad.
Continuing in the hospital, a police investigator is telling Rachel about the car accident that put her daughter, Angela, into the hospital. If you feel sad after reading this, please check out the adorable animals to help you feel better. For those of you who wanted to know what happened between Rodger and Hank, you’ll just have to read the book when it comes out–or you can always volunteer to beta read for me. 😀
“. . . Then, as far as we can tell, both drivers lost control of their vehicles, crashing into other cars. In total, six vehicles were involved in the accident.”
Rachel’s mouth dried out as her stomach heaved. “Did anyone die?” she asked softly.
“Serious injuries, as you know,” he answered. His eyes glanced over at Angela and he cleared his throat. “But no, no one died. However, the driver of the oncoming vehicle is in critical condition and we’re not sure if she’ll make it.”
“That’s horrible.” Rachel’s eyes filled with tears at what could have been, what still could be. She grabbed Angela’s hand, needing to feel the warmth of her living body.
