Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Meet writers in various genres and read 8-10 sentence snippets of their stories. Find a new author and sample their work. Enjoy!
I’m running snippets from an unpublished short story in my superhero series. It was written for an anthology that didn’t get published. I’m debating whether to expand it into a novella or make an anthology with other short stories. Any suggestions are welcome.
Background: After Estelle joined their table, Toby, the leader of the Secret Supers, has just explained that Gecko’s baby sister is missing.

Last line was: “Yep; know how it is; ain’t easy to lose part of your family,” Toby drawled.
Toby continued, “Problem number two, our contact in the cops’ station sent word they’re worried about street kids disappearing. Inspector Parkins suspects child trafficking or something. Reckon the two problems might be connected.” Stabbing his forefinger at Gecko, he said, “Tell them about the chief suspect.”
“Okay;” Gecko frowned; “Normally, Juliana rides the school bus with Sofia, a girl from the next building in our complex. The day she went missing, her friend was sick, and neither of the mothers came to meet the bus. Bus driver watched a woman greet Juliana and lead her away. Typical Latina, short hair, neatly dressed; driver thought she was a relative from out of town. Didn’t get worried until next morning when the cops called.”
Toby said, “Know it’s not much, but she’s the only hint we have.”
