I have just recently started taking part in this challenge – to post a snippet from a WIP, based on the date.
So it is Jan. 21/15 – so:21 + 1 = page 22, with 15 lines of my romance novel WIP
“Flynn, it’s Emma. You know, you and I met at the bar last night. Well, I just got photographed when I tried to leave my place not ten minutes ago. What am I supposed to do now?” She felt like throwing the phone and screaming. How had her life changed so much in such a short time?
Flynn was talking with his brother when his phone beeped. He ignored the call. If only his brother learned to solve his own problems, he wouldn’t have been at the bar and there would have been no photo. But to be perfectly honest with himself, he was not sorry he had met Emma. There was something vulnerable about her that caused him to want to help her.
“Okay Pete. Just forget it. See you next week.” He hung up on his younger brother. His anger was still simmering and talking with Pete hadn’t helped. He checked the numbers called and saw a number he didn’t recognize. As he played the message, he heard Emma’s voice. Of course he remembered her. How could he forget her? Now they were beginning to harass her. This had to stop. As he ran his fingers through his hair, he pressed call and waited for her to answer.
“Emma, I just got your message. I seem to be having to apologize to you a lot. But I am sorry.” He drummed his fingers on the table.
“What do I do Flynn? I have to go to school tomorrow. I can’t have this going on.” Flynn heard a tremor in her voice.
“I’ll phone the paper and tell them I’ll give them an interview if they leave you alone.”
“Do you think it will work?” Emma sounded hopeful.
