Sunday Snippet November 29, 2015


Ah, so much for the brief idyllic break from her mother’s machinations…



When Taliya returned to her room after a shower the next morning her comm unit was blinking.  “Miss Swann,” the message said, “it’s Raub from Vastyne’s.  Your ship will be ready for you to pick up as soon as you come in to sign the paperwork.”

She frowned as she called him back.

“I thought you couldn’t get financing?”

“Yes, well, your cosigner came through, you’re good to go.”

Cosigner? “Who?” she asked tersely.

“Your mother.”

“Thank you.”  Her tone was more clipped than she had intended.  “I will be there shortly.”

“I’d say good morning but I think I’d be wrong,” her father said as she descended the stairs.

“That interfering bitch,” she snarled.

“Well, now I know who, but not what.   What did she do to ruffle your feathers already this morning?”

Taliya took a deep breath and let it out slowly.  “She cosigned my loan.”

  1. Whoa, that’s invasive! Nice snippet, P.T.! :)

  2. That’s an interesting development, I wonder what she means to gain by doing that.

  3. To quote Bernadette from The Big Bang Theory: “I feel like I should say ‘that bitch’ but I don’t have enough information.” I guess I’ll just have to keep reading to get more. ;-)

  4. I KNEW her mother wasn’t going to give up so easily. Can’t wait to see wait happens next, loved the excerpt!

    She’s a hard one to shake.

  6. Just when we’ve almost forgotten about her (not really) here comes the mother. Way to make her present, even when she’s not there.

  7. That mother of hers is a mean one. Hope she can get through this one.

  8. As they say, the plot thickens … Can’t wait to find out the reasoning behind it. Great snippet.

  9. I’m curious why she’s so mad about this! What is her mom plotting…

  10. I’ve said it once, and so has Taliya, and I’ll say it again. That woman is conniving and ‘that interfering bitch’ is not a strong enough word for her. LOL. Love what Taliya does in response to it though. (I’m not spoiling, I swear!)
