Here is a snippet from a current WIP. This short story is about the repercussions when Tyler breaks up with Gemma.This carries on from my last Snippet Sunday.
The scumbag couldn’t even tell her to her face he was dumping her. Well thanks to the industrious spider, which had extended its web almost across the whole entrance of her shelter, anyone passing by could be forgiven for thinking there’d be no one beyond the web and not take time out to search the area.
Who, she wondered, using anger to try and force her rising fear away, had killed a spider? Didn’t they know that if you killed a spider it would rain? Whoever it was must have killed millions of them, the rain was falling so hard now she couldn’t see past the wall of water beyond the cave entrance.
Unwilling to sit in a pool of rain, Gemma shifted into a crouching position and swore, calling on every swearword she’d heard in the school playground and shooed away the guilt and knowledge of how upset her parents would be to discover she even knew such words let alone had let rip a whole string of them.
Even Tyler had disapproved when she'd used the mildest swear word of all.
