Weekend Writing Warriors ~ Snippet 23

Welcome to my twenty-third Weekend Writing Warriors ~ Snippet Sunday post! If you missed any of the previous posts or need a refresher on the entire story, you can catch up on my Meanmna ~ #8Sunday page.

I’m picking up immediately after last week’s snippet so you missed nothing! Sarette started to get up to get her crystal but her mom waved her hands, motioning for her to continue the story.


“So, I met Celine’s niece, Paige.”

What was that look; Mom’s heard that name before.

“I was feeling crazy because I kept hearing things and tried to make a hasty exit but Paige stopped me on the way out, and she gave me the crystal that I had cut my hand on then I left, thinking of driving myself to the loony bin.”

Should I tell her I freaked and fainted because there was a stranger in my car, that he showed up in my dream, or about my apparent newfound telepathic abilities?

I decided to keep those details to myself for now and cleared my throat before continuing, “Outside the store, I met someone named Elwin.”

 “He said my family wants me to see them, and he was here to prepare me for the journey, “I stopped talking and looked at her, waiting for her to respond.

Mom pursed her lips and tilted her head a little to the left. “And then?”

“Well, then I freaked out.”

“Did he say anything else?”

 She was calm—a little too calm.


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 24 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.
