Snippet Sunday – INNOCENT TEARS – 12/06/2016 #romance #reading #bookpromo

INNOCENT TEARS has been re-released.
It has enjoyed another full edit and an awesome new cover.
Here’s another little snippet.
Advice is what we ask for when we already 
know the answer, but wish we didn’t.”

The sun was on its best behaviour and slipped from behind a cloud, giving warmth to the autumn day. Emma and Nadine had walked over to a nearby park, which had a small playground. The apprehension on Nadine’s face was forgotten right away as she enthusiastically climbed the slide and mingled with a few other children.
They stayed for a while, and when Emma stood and came closer, her little friend asked, “Can we stay a bit longer here?”
Instantly, guilt pressed down on Emma’s shoulders. Taking Nadine to the  playground seemed a reasonable idea at the time, but now as she looked into those despondent green eyes as it was time to return to the hotel, she wasn’t all that sure anymore. “I’m sorry, honey, but it’s time to go.”
Nadine’s face reflected the obvious disappointment. “Okay, then.”
She picked up her bag from the park bench and then looked at Emma. “Do you know my dad?”
“No, honey, I don’t. I saw him yesterday when he came to see your grandma and grandpa. But that’s it.” And boy, oh, boy was he a treat for the eyes!
With her voice sounding wary, Nadine asked, “Do you think he’ll like me?”

  1. That last line just about broke my heart. The poor child, so unsure about her future. Emma is very compassionate.

    1. Addison – Flynn didn’t know about his daughter until 24 hours earlier ….thanks for stopping by. I appreciate it.

  2. Aww, poor kid. I love this scene, it’s touching and heartbreaking all at once. You captured the emotions so perfectly, it holds a great sense of realness to a situation like this. Nicely done.
