Weekend Writing Warriors ~ Snippet 17

Welcome to my sixteenth Weekend Writing Warriors ~ Snippet Sunday post! If you missed any of the previous posts, you can catch up on my Meanmna ~ #8Sunday page.


What you missed: Nothing! The guy in Sarette’s back seat just introduced himself and said it was a pleasure to finally meet Sarette.



 “I’ve been sent here by your family to help you get ready for the journey to meet them,” he put his arm across the back of the seat and nonchalantly looked at me with a half-smile, acting as if he had uttered the most normal statement in the world.

“Journey? Wait, what…my family,” I exploded. “I don’t know what kind of crazy crap this is but my family consists of; my mom who is at home crying, Mathew who is on a date with a girl whose name starts with an S, and Mama. . .I haven’t any idea where she is or what she’s doing, but she would not have sent some hunky guy to prepare me; she’s never had a dating problem and she would have kept you for herself.”

Did I really did just say that, I thought as I turned back around and started the car, “It’s time for you to get out.”

“Listen, we really need to talk; I can help you understand what’s been going on and who you really are; when you’re ready, I’ll find you,” he got out of the car.

Wow, he’s tall and he’s smirking again; he had better not be reading my mind—it’s my crazy mind.

He leaned down and looked at me through the window, “I know this is a shock, so please think about it; I’ll be seeing you around, Sarette Miller,” he shut the door and started walking away.

I watched him in my rear view mirror until his outline started to go blurry then he disappeared and I shook my head in disbelief, This is too much—much too much; I am going crazy.

No, you are not. Goodnight, Sarette, I heard in my head then headed back home with no coffee, no candle, and my last shred of sanity gone.


I hope you enjoyed this week’s snippet! Let me know in the comments below!

Check back in next week for Weekend Writing Warriors ~ Snippet 18 of Meanmna: Book One of the Daearen Realms!

But, if you can’t wait for next week…



Seventeen-year-old Sarette has always thought of her life as average, even a bit boring. She does well in school, has a loving mother and a loyal best friend, Mathew. Of course, she has her problems as well—cold Michigan winters, a long-lost father she knows nothing about, and the lack of a boyfriend. She also has the vague sensation that she is being watched by some unseen entity, but figures that means she’s average and crazy.

Nothing could be further from the truth . . .

Daearen isn’t much different than the human world.

Imagine a world where science is replaced with magic.
