It’s my first time taking part in the Weekend Writing Warriors! At last! *laughs* I’ve been meaning to join for some time and now that I’m back to writing other stuff than what I post on the blog, I have an occasion!
The 8 sentences I’m sharing today are from my Camp NaNoWriMo project called The Phoenix’s Wake, an urban fantasy thriller.
The night before the story begins, Detective Gael Waaks’ partner, Ramses Cairo, spontaneously combusted. The next morning, a hungover Gael is called to a murder scene where she meets her new partner Detective Keith Russo, a human. These 8 sentences happen a few hours later. 😉
“Fourth new message,” the automated voice announced. “This message has been automatically forwarded by —”
“— Ramses Cairo —,” Rammey’s voice chimed in.
“At 4:58 pm.”
Please let it be good news, I thought. I had been warned this might happen in order to avoid information from one of Rammey’s contact to get archived on his voice mail until he was old enough to listen to it.
“Found Anita Lambros already?” The distorted voice froze the blood in my vein — quite a feat, considering I’m cold blooded to begin with. “Six to go.”
