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’ll continue the teaser scene from my new release, Super Starrella. Estelle was knocked unconscious in an explosion. When she woke, she was tied down in a weird cylinder and heard strangers discussing her. Then, a woman entered and gave her a drink. Read last week’s snippet here:
The second time she woke, Estelle grew angry, remembering what Dr. Netta had done. They had drugged her; she had to escape from this peculiar Clinic. This time, the transparent cylinder had vanished and she lay on what appeared to be a regular hospital bed. Her strength restored, Estelle sat up and slipped her legs over the edge of the bed.
She waited, listening for any sound from her captors; all was quiet.
Gathering her courage, Estelle padded round the room and opened the cabinets, one by one. Her clothes hung in a tall cabinet on the back wall, next to a bright blue leotard and matching leggings. A shiver of certainty ran down her spine. As a child, Estelle had dreamed of being her favorite comic book character, Super Starrella, and flying across the sky chasing villains. If she wore the costume, her name would be Starrella.
