Welcome friends, followers, and Weekend Writing Warriors!
Continuing with sentences from ‘Love is a Masterpiece’ this week. Cassandra ran away from the line of lovers in the park, while Mother wasn’t there to watch over her and before Geoffrey could meet here there, but…
Geoffrey was sprinting to intercept her, his arms spread wide, a big grin on his face.
Cassandra slowed down to a jog, then a walk, turning towards Geoffrey. She couldn’t outrun him in the dress, and didn’t want him to realize that she had run away. He reached her in moments, hugged her tight, and swung her up in the air for a moment, which made her gasp. “Sorry I’m late. Is your mother holding our place?” He let go with one arm to wave towards the line.
On impulse, Cassandra headed toward the man in the pocket-watch and his lady friend, who were now ahead of the line’s end.

She didn’t get too far then…interesting excerpt, building on last week’s…can’t wait for more!
Dang, she didn’t get away. She strikes me that she would have kept on running to somewhere, anywhere.I like this story. 🙂
History Sleuth’s Milk Carton Murders
I’m still trying to figure out how local customs come into this.
I’ve always had a thing for men and pocket watches (I really wish that fashion trend would return). Interesting snippet.
Great snippet. Her escape proved short-lived and wonder what her intentins are about the man with the pocket watch. Nicely done.
Now she’s got to save herself by making it seem like she never tried to run at all–can she pull it off? And when will her mother return?
Nice tension, though I was rooting for her to escape.
Interesting excerpt. Wonder why she didn’t want to meet him? Can’t wait to see what’s next for them as she did seem to not want to have him see her.
Thanks for sharing.
