#8Sunday - Fall From Grace - Episode 13: A Conscience? Some Of Us Don't Have That Problem...





Welcome to another weekend of Weekend Writing Warriors and another eight sentences from my WIP Fall From Grace.

For those of you new to this, hop on over to the wewriwa website. There you will find the rules as well as links to the excerpts of the wonderful participants there.

The eight sentences I selected for this week immediately follow last week.

To recap: The helicopter her best friends were on was just blown to smithereens, and the Captain is pretty pissed off about this. She's convinced the base Commander did it, and she's very rarely wrong.

Johnson brushed off the insult as though it were a bug flying into his ear. He popped the cigar back into his mouth. "You are your father's daughter, Captain," he sneered. "Did daddy ever tell you why he left the military?"

She laughed. "Because murder is against the law," she looked him straight in the eye. "And while he could have pinned your untimely demise on the Taliban and gotten away with it, he knew that if he did his conscience would never let him sleep again. Apparently some of us don't have that problem." She waved her hand in the direction of the wreckage.

So there it is. Any thoughts?

Thanks for stopping by this weekend!

Cheers,

Keeley

P.S: This weekend, typo's are being blamed on Mr. Jones. He was "helping" ;)
