Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors. This is a sample from my work in progress, “Frankenkitty”, and I hope you enjoy it. It started out as a young-adult superhero book, and well, you’ll see. The week before last they met Mrs. Jones, nee von Volkstein. Despite the premature reports of her death, Mrs. Jones was still alive. Last week they started in on making the surprisingly powerful “pink solution.” This week Jenny and her father meet Mrs. Jones and arrange for an exchange student to visit.
When they knocked on the door, Mrs. Jones answered; her voice was beginning to reflect her frailty, but her joy when she greeted them was unmistakable.
“Velcome, come in please.”
Jennifer’s father began, “I’m so sorry, we thought-”
“Jennifer explained it to me this afternoon; these things happen.”
“Still, I’m sorry.”
“Vell, it’s just as good that you’re here; my grand-niece Gertrude is looking for a place to stay as an exchange student; she’s about Jennifer’s age.”
“Jennifer, it might be fun to have a foreign student here; for how long and what do we have to do?”
“All you have to do is sign the paperwork and my nephew, her vater will handle the rest, including the costs.”
Jennifer’s father asked to see the forms and Mrs. Jones handed him a thick sheaf of papers, some in German, but mostly in English. A yellowing black and white photograph of a teenage girl was stapled to the upper left corner.
This is a work in progress. In other news, I’ve become a booktrope author, but more on that latter. It has meant a change in pen-name. The week before last is here, last weeks is here, and you can read the whole last chapter if you’d rather.
I’m also looking for reviewers for my nearly ready book “The Curious Profession of Dr. Craven”
