Going after Croaker - Snippet from Starrella Falls for #WeWriWa #Superheroes

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

I’m continuing the scene from: Starrella Falls, Book 2 in the Secret Supers, until the end of this chapter. Then, I’ll begin to post snippets from Book 3. You can read the first chapters of Starrella Falls HERE.

Background: Estelle and Toby are superheroes and their telepathic animal partners are Rockette, the flying mare, and Growler, the jaguar.
Toby knocks out the wanted murderer, Croaker, and Mark Copper offers to take Croaker to the police station. Instead, Estelle and Toby discover Mark is driving north, probably to Dupree Air Base.
The last line, spoken by Toby, was: “Copper wasn’t after the money. Reckon he’s taking Croaker to the military jail.”

“Is that a problem?” Estelle asked as they walked across the campus.
“Might be safer. Don’t know for sure. Zarnoths are sneaky.”
“What about Rockette?”
“She’s to follow and make sure Copper goes to Dupree.”
Estelle relayed Toby’s instructions, and Rockette snorted, “Growler already told me.”
Toby lengthened his stride until Estelle had to trot to keep pace. He did not stop until they reached the parking lot behind McTartan’s. He patted the handlebars of the motorcycle and looked at Estelle, “I’m going after Copper.”

    1. Of course. My snippets end in cliffhangers whenever possible.

  2. So what does he know that makes him doubt Copper? Or is something else entirely going on here?

    1. Copper doesn't know about the aliens. Also, Toby knows the police jail isn't safe either. He's been making plans, but needed to know where Copper was going.

  3. I'm glad he's going too. Croaker is bad news!

  7. Why? I thought he was sure Copper's going the right way. :D Good snippet, Aurora.

    1. Copper said he was going to the police station. But he isn't. Maybe Toby guessed, but he had to escort the two girls home, or at least Diane. And, Estelle's alternate transport is tailing Copper's car.

  8. I hope they have Copper's back. :D

    1. Maybe. He shouldn't have driven off without backup.

  9. Nice cliffhanger. Makes you want to know more.

  10. Ah, I wonder what she is going to do now. Good hook!

  11. Is he unsure about Copper? Can't wait to find out.

  12. Aha! So he doesn't trust him to take Croaker to jail! Or, maybe he just doesn't trust Croaker to cooperate... Either way, smart plan to follow. I just hope it won't be too late for chaos.
