Thank you for stopping by for this week of Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors. This snippet needs a bit of a set-up (sorry about that). Rachel is meeting with Rodger, an actor who is playing the character of Sir Rohbert MacLeod, the hero in a book Rachel wrote. Rodger did not give the best first impression, but he’s worked hard to redeem himself and he’s started to “play” his part for Rachel.
“I do not intent to wound, Sir MacLeod, just to speak the truth,” Rachel answered in her best English accent which was, well. . . horrible. Rodger opened his mouth, to laugh or say something, Rachel wasn’t sure, when at that moment a young woman came up to the table with a napkin and pen in hand.
“Excuse me, Rodger, will you please sign an autograph?” Rachel saw annoyance flit over Rodger’s features, but then just as quickly disappear as he turned to his fan. He smiled, signed the autograph, and then dismissed her by turning back to Rachel.
“Where were we, m’Lady?” he asked Rachel, reaching for her hand across the table. She swallowed her jitters, determined to take in this moment. After all, he was playing Rohbert; she could play along.
