Hey everyone – feels like I’ve been out of it for ages! I’m returning with a fresh work in progress which is totally unedited. This is the opener for a sequel I’m writing about Sam from my shorties, Foul is Fair and The Brinded Cat
Click, click, click went the shutter. I had to take the photographs during the lull between passing cars. The black marks of burnt rubber stood out against the tarmac. I squatted and lightly touched my fingertips to the wet grit.
A horn blasted and a driver shouted, “Get off the road you stupid xxxxx.”
I gave him the one finger salute as I stepped back onto the curb and continued to study the tracks on the road. They seemed to just veer off into the lamppost for no apparent reason. I scribbled in my notebook to check with the garage again, but it couldn’t have been a technical fault as the brakes were clearly performing. Maybe a cat jumped out in front of them.
And that is your lot – don’t forget to check out the other writers taking part in the Sci-Fi Fantasy blog hop. Happy reading :)
