Hello Teasers – it’s that time of the week where I show you a little snippet from my WIP ‘Sparks’ which will hopefully be finished in around a month or so 🙂 The action between Lois and James is hotting up…
“We’re having Ratatouille, in case you were wondering,” she said.
I wasn’t, but I kept that to myself.
“James is a marvellous cook. You’ll be getting a little slice of heaven whilst you’re under his roof. He was professionally trained in France. Food still means something over there, I hear.”
“Where did he learn all his other professional skills?” My voice might have held a teensy bit of sarcasm. Seriously, how did a person go from Masterchef to assassin?
“They came later, after someone tried to disembowel him, or so I heard.” Miss Sharkey then went back to the refridgerator, pulled out a bottle of white wine and busied herself with opening it.
“It wasn’t my intestines they were after.” James sauntered into the kitchen looking perfectly calm, cool, and collected. Was there any other version of the man? I gritted my teeth. Of course he had known Sharkey would be here. I was the only one kept in the dark around these parts.
“Lois, you should be on the floor. You’ve already earned so many swats this evening you’ll keep Sharkey and I busy for hours.” Motioning with his index finger in a downward movement, I sighed and did as I was bid. There was two against one. I was doomed.
Miss Sharkey poured out a large glass of wine and handed it to James. “What were they after?”
He smiled at her. “Something a little lower.”
“Ahh. Dipping it about in the wrong place were we?” She raised an eyebrow and smirked at him.
“I was dipping it about in the right place, at the wrong time.” His smile was rueful.
