#SnippetSunday – As Yet Unnamed WIP (Vigilante/Noir) – November 9, 2014
Snippet Sunday is a Facebook group for writers I’ve been privileged enough to have been accepted into.
From the group guidelines;
“Welcome to Snippet Sunday, where writers come together to share a few sentences of their current project–whether it’s a recently released novel, a WIP (work in progress), or an older manuscript that’s being revived. Intended to hook readers, gather feedback and build an author’s fan base, Snippet Sunday is the FB group that does all three.”
We’re moving ahead in the story with today’s snippet. It’s a look in that reveals a few things about the relationship between Meyer and Satsuke.
The snippet takes place immediately after the workout session depicted in part in my past two snippets.
The workout is over and Meyer is in the locker room getting cleaned up when we pick up the action;
I heard the shower door slide open. Cooler air from the locker room got in and started fogging the place up.
I sensed Satsuke’s eyes on me as I rinsed the soap from my body. The steady flow of water simultaneously battered and soothed all of the places she’d bruised during the morning workout of suffering she’d put me through.
I felt good despite the soreness. Working with Satsuke had made me leaner and more defined than I’d ever been. A scuplted Adonis I was not, but I was well on my way to making barrel-chested look good.
I winced as the powerful shower spray hit a particularly deep bruise.
“Admiring your handiwork?” I croaked.
“It is still rough around the edges,” she replied, “but not un-promising.”
I ducked my head back into the stream, smiling when I felt Satsuke’s hands massaging my shoulders.
“Relax,” she whispered. Her voice blended with the rush of water.
