Welcome friends, followers, and Weekend Writing Warriors!
Good morning! I’m sharing eight more sentences from my Nano project “Never Found”, which I started last week. My main character, Tricia, has just woken up to find a stranger at her door…
“I’m here to take you to see Vinny Gibson.”
“Whoever Vinny is, he can f@*k off until I’ve had my coffee.” Tricia started to close the door, but the other girl reached out to touch her hand.
“Sorry–you want to meet Vinny. He’s a clever and powerful man, and he’s got a job for you. The kind of job that could make you rich, or earn you things that money won’t buy. This is a great opportunity you don’t want to mess up.”
Tricia stood there, a little dazed, not sure what had just happened. “Um, okay. I–I should get dressed before we go, right?”

Huh! Did she just get Jedi-mind-tricked? Oh dear…
How’s the word-count going? 🙂
Doing great, I’m coming into the day with 17k! And yes, that blonde girl has some persuasive magic she just used on Tricia.

I guess she sensed the importance and conceded, nice exchange.
Wonder why she would concede so easily…and without coffee. Is she a gal desperate for all the good things in life that money can buy?? And fame?
Interesting beginning and I’m thoroughly intrigued with all sorts of questions to keep me reading…great snippet.
It sounds like the kind of job where the pros and cons need to be carefully considered. Great snippet
Yes, especially when the cons (convicts, con artists) are also pros (professionals.) 😉
Yup – getting dressed is probably a good idea.
I sense magical persuasion with that hand touch–or maybe some good people ‘hacking’ skills, but I’m going with something the former.
The question is… if the stranger is using a mind-whammy already, whether it’s a good idea to be involved with Vinny. Lots of interesting questions raised with this snippet! 🙂
