WeWriWa - Let the celebrating begin...

Welcome one and all to Weekend Writing Warriors, the Millie Burns snippet edition.  On this here blog, you'll find my snippet of work, from my WIP.  If you follow the link above, you'll find oodles of other snippets to read.  All manner of genre's represented, by so many talented authors.  Click the link to learn more.

My snippet picks up where we last left off...Seamus proclaiming that Ravyn has made him the happiest man in the world.  

     Ravyn blushed, feeling guilty at the little charade she’d been playing.  Seamus really was a sweet guy, and it bothered her that she’d be breaking his heart soon.  She hoped.
     They all sat down to the table and loaded their plates with the savory fish, some fresh greens from the garden and little biscuits. 
     “Da, this is a celebratory dinner, shall we bring out the wine?”

     Murphy beamed at his son, “Yes lad, I believe you’re right.  Break out the wine and goblets, and let the celebrating begin.”

    1. These two guys haven't seen women in a long time...they are so dang over the top excited right now.

  4. Oh no, plans to dump him?? Ravyn's not a mean person so I'm super curious why she's planning that. Or is she falling for him anyway? Can't wait to find out!

    1. Raven isn't mean, that's true. But she is already engaged to the love of her life who's back home.

  7. Ah, I knew it was all too good to be true! And I have to say I'm a little relieved to discover Ravyn's secret - so deliciously complicated of her.

  8. Poor Seamus, he really doesn't know what's coming. Ravyn is awesome, I love her character and she totally intrigues me. Great eight!

  10. Drink the wine. They'll be fine. Or will they? Millie, you'd never let them suffer-not too much.

  11. I'm wondering if he'll react the way she expects . . . I know what a tricky one you are, Millie. :)

  12. Poor Seamus. Will he take the news hard. Will he still try to win her heart? I'm intrigued.

  13. Poor Ravyn, poor Seamus. Or maybe not, as others have said! You always have good twists and turns to your plots, nothing is too easy. The meal sounded good to me, especially with wine! So, excellent excerpt again...

    1. Thank you : ). Can't have a path too straight and narrow, makes for a boring path : )

  14. Awww....these guys are ready to marry the ladies it sounds like. :( Puts you in the place where you want to know what happens but at the same time you rather not know because it might be bad.

  15. Woot! Wine and celebrations! The booze will soften the blow, so no worries about them tricksy womenfolk.

  16. Yup these two are being a bit sly : )

  17. Oups, I'm sure she'll break a lot more than his heart.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Why does she hope she'll break his heart? I like that she's feeling a little guilty. Great 8.

  19. Interesting! I like that she has a secret--that she's about to spoil the moment. I'm looking forward to the next installment :)

    Keep smiling,
