Happy Wednesday! We’re getting down to the last bit before vacation. I’m taking some time away from working to enjoy the holiday with my family. It’s surprisingly relaxed this week, despite having spent two days baking cookies. My older kid already had his winter concert, and my younger one has hers tomorrow. Tonight, we’re rehearsing for the Christmas Eve service.
I’m still snipping from the beginning of Minuet. I’ll be able to stick with this one for a while, as I’m steadily making progress. In this snippet, Mack reveals a crucial bit of history. Amelia says she’s keeping mum about her dirt on Sage until I get to writing in her POV. She drives a hard bargain.
WIPmath: 20 sentences for the 20th.
Outside, they leaned against the building. Amelia was shaking, and Mack reached for her. He felt her heaving breaths as she tried to calm down. Mack was grateful every day that he could count on her. If he’d gone to Sage’s apartment alone, he’d either be unconscious or sitting in the back of a cop car.
“You okay?” he asked.
She pulled back to look at him. “Yeah. You?”
“Fine, now.” He exhaled forcefully. “More than I can say for Jamie.”
“God.” Amelia shook her head. “Sage is the very worst. What the hell happened to him?”
“He’s always been this way. Ever since I’ve known him.”
Amelia bit her lip. Mack regretted saying it. She had a soft spot for him, or she’d had one when they were kids.
