Welcome to another SciFi Fantasy Saturday and my latest snippet contribution from a current WIP of mine. For the last few weeks, we’ve followed Sam and Mary on a bike ride home and a few mysterious revelations about ghosts, an ominous bike ride over a covered bridge, and last week Sam met up with a human twister sent to him by his thought to be dead father. Here we’re picking up from last week and the mysterious stranger has left something for Sam before vanishing. Sam has just finished reading the note from his Dad. I hope you enjoy this week’s snippet and, as always, if you feel compelled, comments are appreciated. Please make sure you check out the other writers and their work over at Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday. There’s a lot of talent there and definitely worth your time. Enjoy.
Sam wiped the dirt stained tears from his cheeks and stared at the bottom of the note. Love and Dad were two words he never expected to hear again. He carefully re-folded the page and slid it between the pages of his science book. Sam tugged at the strings bound tightly around the package the note was attached to. He instinctively felt for his trusted folding knife in the front pocket of his jeans before remembering he just left school. The blade was the last thing his father gave him before he vanished and Sam wasn’t about to chance it winding up inside a desk drawer in Mr. Skinner’s office. Stuffing the package the best he could inside his book bag, Sam figured it would hold until he made it home and could get it un-wrapped.
He brushed the dust from his clothes and started pushing his bike down the trail, casting a last look at the bridge as he rounded the bend.
“I haven’t seen my dad in ten years and he sends a human twister to give me a diary. I might as well add crazy to my growing list of problems.”
