Sweet Saturday sample 09-03-013


Time for Sweet Saturday Sample again, and this week I'm continuing from where I left off last week one of my Gasquet Princes WsIP, its working title - Sacha's Story.

Sacha is the third (being the younger twin) Gasquet brother, and this clip comes from may be the opening scene in his story.


A twin recognised his sibling at a deep and instinctive soul level, and this imposter didn’t touch his soul.  He glanced behind him when Liam laid a hand on his shoulder. 

“What’s wrong?  I thought you’d be pleased to see Simeon, even if it is only for a few hours, before we are all engulfed in the next tier of Jubilee celebrations.”

“If the man approaching your front door was Simeon, I’d be delighted, but the man you’re watching is not Simeon, I’d swear my life on it.”

Liam swung him round and Sacha noted the pallor on his brother’s face.

“What are you saying?”

“I don’t know why, or how, but my instinct tells me we are about to invite a cuckoo into your nest.”  His dry tone was not lost on Liam, Sacha noted with satisfaction.

Strangers watching Liam go about his business could be forgiven for thinking he’d put the past behind him. But they’d be wrong.  

Since the attempt on Liam, his younger brother’s life, if Melanie didn’t restrain him, tended to go overboard about personal security these days, and Sacha appreciated the turmoil his bald statement would have on his younger brother.

Physically knocked back by Sacha’s claim, Liam stepped forward again and watched the man haul a briefcase from the passenger seat of the car and head for the front door. “Who would organise something like this?” 

“The ‘who’ escapes me,” Sacha replied, “but the why is obvious.”

I enjoyed this excerpt. We did a lesson at school on twins, and they do have a remarkable connection to each other.

I've always been fascinated by the connections between twins. You did a great job of showing that in today's excerpt. I'm looking forward to more.

I've always been fascinated by twins because my dad was one, though fraternal. It's still such a great device for an author to use in both plot and character development. Can't wait to find out more!

I think it's a wonderful twin connection that can cut through artifice and facade and see the truth. Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.
