Today’s snippet is again from my new story, which follows Piper and Jon.
The sobbing stilled for a fleeting moment before he heard a scream in frustration. Raising his brows, he stepped to the door and knocked. An instant silence fell upon the room, and he knocked again. Nothing.
A mix of emotions surged through him which he wasn’t able to sort. Curiosity, wanting to know more about the person on the other side of the door. Irritation that she ignored him, but most of all a sense of worry. What on earth, or possibly who, could’ve upset her so much to have her distressed like this.
He returned to his part of the cabin, searched for a notepad and a pen and wrote: My name is Jon, I’m your cabin neighbour. Hope you are okay. With the piece of paper in hand, he returned, knocked again, and slid his message under the door. The subtle noise of footsteps told him that she’d come closer to pick it up and he went back to his rooms with a smile on his face.
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!
