No nonsense! Snippet from Starrella Falls for #WeWriWa #Superhero #Romance


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, for a little longer. You can read the first chapters HERE.

Background: Estelle recognizes the wanted murderer, Croaker, and Toby knocks him out. Mark Copper offers to take Croaker to the police station while Toby looks after Diane and Estelle. After Mark drives off, Diane accuses him of wanting the reward for Croaker.

Note: Toby is in good spirits since he and Estelle have patched up their differences. They are enjoying each other’s company for the final weeks of the college semester before they part for the summer, or possibly, forever! Ominous drum beats and anxious wait for Book 3!

The final line was: “Ain’t that golden!” Toby sounded amused. “Hope he don’t regret it.”

“That’s the last time I’m going out with him,” Diane grumbled.
“Plenty of other guys at Goldman,” Estelle consoled her friend.
“Don’t squabble over Copper,” Toby said; “Ladies, grab hold.” He offered an arm to each of them.
“Ooh!” Diane squealed, “Best offer I’ve had in ages.”
“Ease up,” Toby said firmly, “No nonsense. I’ll drop you at your dorm; then, I’m driving Estelle to her home.”
Estelle was disappointed. She had hoped to spend the evening with him, but she dared not inquire about his plans when Diane could hear.

Of course, they’re not finished with Croaker. Remember, Estelle’s bonded mare, Rockette, is following Mark’s car, in her pigeon disguise. Also, Toby’s jaguar companion is close by. The animal companions are key characters in this superhero series.

    1. Thanks. More revealing of the characters interactions than action.

  2. I have to admit that I'm a bit confused. There are so many characters that I had trouble keeping them separate. Still, it sounds like an intriguing premise. :)

  3. I have a feeling things aren't going to go so well for Copper, and the calm night Estelle expects is not going to happen.

    1. Of course. She doesn't get many "calm" nights with Toby.

  4. I don't think Estelle needs to worry about spending the evening with Tony. I don't think he's planning on taking to her home after dropping off Diane.

    1. He may be. Often he's overprotective of Estelle, which she hates.

  5. Hmm... is Tony going to spend the evening with Diane? Intrigued.

    1. Actually, he's giving her a rebuff when he says, "No nonsense."

  8. Diane seems to be flirt and poor Estelle isn't getting what she wants either. I wonder how the evening will turn out in the end.

    1. Diane is definitely a flirt and Toby usually ignores her. He can't this evening since he's promised to escort the girls.

  9. I'm curious to see what happens after he drops off Diane. Great snippet!

  10. I have a feeling Estelle isn't going to get much alone time with Toby at all, considering what else is going on!

    1. They had some time together during Spring Break a week earlier, now it's back to the fight (and classes).

  11. Lots going on here - I'm enjoying finding out more about these people!

  12. Diane is quite a flirt, but I bet Estelle gets the prize.

  13. The calm before the storm. I do wonder what will happen :3 Nice snippet!

  14. He's being a completely gentleman, but is Estelle happy? Of course not!

    1. She was hoping for some personal attention!

  16. I am concerned about what is going to happen with Croaker. Trouble ahead. Good snippet, Aurora. :-)

  17. Love the way he offered an arm to both ladies. He's a bit cocky, which is like catnip to women. I can see there being some jealousy in the air. :) Fun snippet!

    1. He is very cocky, but he prefers to be ogled from a distance.

  18. I think Estelle was wise not to inquire about Toby's plans in earshot of Diannt I don't think their ideas of spending the night together are the same.

    1. Their plans have changed since they discovered Croaker.

  19. At least he is dropping of Diane first so maybe there is a way for Estelle to stick around.

    1. She's sticking with Toby as long as she can.

  20. Interesting to read what happens after they drop of Diane. Nice snippet.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Or perhaps him saying he's dropping Estelle at her home is just a cover so Dianne won't know they spend the night together or not.
