Weekend Writing Warriors is a blog hop. The object is to write eight sentences from your writing, published or unpublished, for the other participants to critique (as well as anyone else who wants to comment of course). This is a snippet from my WIP, The Milk Carton Murders.- See more at: http://historysleuth.blogspot.com/#sthash.KzbxXmen.dpuf
The Milk Carton Murders
(A brief synopsis of the story and previous excerpts can be found here.)
This is from the perspective of the killer, who has a now old dog named Baxter.
The mutt was just a puppy when it first started, a stray himself--kids weren’t part of the plan. Then one April day everything changed. The love of my life got out of the car, child in tow, and casually came up the walk as if it was normal--as if the child was another Baxter found on the side of the road.
“Adorable, isn't she? You remember her don’t you?”
“Yes, Samantha Briggs, she was sent back home a few months ago so why is she here?”
“You mean Sally. Her name is Sally now, isn’t it sweetie?”
