Weekend Writing Warriors ~ Snippet 21

Welcome to my twenty-first  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’s mom just said, “It’s a boy, isn’t it?


Must be someone I wouldn’t approve of…” she tapped her chin, deep in thought., “…a biker; that’s it, isn’t it?

Just because I don’t like the no helmet law doesn’t mean I don’t like them, just wear a helmet even though the law says you don’t have to, okay?”

I couldn’t speak and must have made her nervous because she switched course and started again, “Listen, I know sometimes it seems like I favor Mathew but as soon as you have a date, I’ll give you fifty bucks to…that sounded terrible; let me try again—”

 “Mom,” I shouted to cut her off,  “It’s about Dad; I think it’s about Dad; Elwin said family, not Dad specifically.”

Mom reacted like I had just slapped her and I barely uttered, “I’m sor—” before she raised her hand to stop me.

“I’ve told you everything I can about your dad; you know that.

I have always been honest with you about your father’s time with me.”

She looked so sad and mad at the same time but then I saw a twinkle in her eye, “Elwin?

I knew there was a boy involved; I just knew it!”

I sat down across the table from her and took a deep breath.


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 22 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.
