Act Cool! Snippet from Starrella Falls for #WeWriWa #Superhero Adventure & #Romance

Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Here, writers in different genres showcase their stories with 8-10 sentences. Join the fun and read our snippets.

Today, I’m continuing the scene from my new release: Starrella Falls, Book 2 in the Secret Supers. You can read the first chapters HERE

Background: Toby and Estelle are having dinner in their first real date for several weeks, when Estelle recognizes a man who walks into the pub. You can read last weeks’ snippet here: http://auroraspringer.blogspot.com/2016/07/hes-dangerous-snippet-from-starrella.html
Toby says the man is dangerous.
The final line was: Squeezing his fingers, Estelle hissed, “Okay. What’ll we do?”

“Finish our food, pay up and walk out like we’re cool.”
“Sure; my hands are itching to flame.”
“See what he does first,” Toby advised, “don’t want to create a scene.” He beckoned to the waitress and asked for the check. While they waited to pay, he asked, “Where’s the mare?”
“Not far; we’re in contact.”
They eased out of the booth. Toby slipped his arm around Estelle’s waist and they strolled to the rear exit leading to the parking lot. Estelle glanced back before they reached the door. Croaker stood facing them.

  16. I hope they get outside before something gets started. And somehow I don't think that Croaker being there was a coincidence.

  18. Oh not fair! You can't leave us on that! Great tension. I love the detail she can connect with her horse I'm assuming telepathically? Maybe?

    1. Yes. Estelle/Starrella and her mare Rockette speak to each other telepathically. Toby has an animal partner too. It's my fun twist in this series.
