Snippet Sunday’s Swashbuckler~Meeting Rodger #4

Welcome to another week of Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors! Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoy reading the next eight sentences in Swashbuckler, my contemporary romance about a guy and a gal and their path to reaching a Happily Ever After. Creative punctuation is due to dropping the Snippet from ten sentences to WeWriWa’s eight. 🙂

“Who are you meeting, ma’am?” the host inquired, interrupting her escape plan. Rachel looked at him, noting the slipping patience in his barely polite smile. The question stopped her — should she say Rodger’s name? She had no experience with this — how much did celebrities value their privacy?

“I’m uh, I’m meeting someone…” Rachel hesitated, letting her eyes wander the restaurant once again, “…the problem is I don’t see him,” she finished in a rush. “Can I take a look around?”

The host dropped the pretense of politeness from his face and gave Rachel a once-over. “I would be happy to sit you at the bar while you wait,” he finally sniffed, dismissing Rachel’s importance as he looked over her shoulder.

  1. That’s typical of a place full of “important” people. Great snippet, Karysa. I’d love to see him eat his snooty airs. 🙂

    • Thanks for that feedback. I completely reworked the scene after a Donald Maasse (or however you spell his name) in February. One of the things I worked on was layering characters so they weren’t flat. Glad the workshop was worth the money. 🙂
