Today I'm going to participate in Teaser Tuesday. This is a passage where my MC meets an old, southern gentleman named Moody. I can't figure out how to make the indentations stay on this darn blog! So, I've spaced it out instead. If anyone knows how to make indentations stay and not revert to left alignment (on blogs) please offer help!!
The old man kept to his work. He was carving a tiny box with intricate roses and diamonds that cascaded down the side. “Does that daddy of yours know where his daughter is?” he said, not looking up.
“Well enough. He knows I’m looking for Jimmy and he knows I can mind my way around a new town. So, will you come to the tent tonight Mr….”
Ollie stretched out her hand. “Pleasure to meet you, Mr. Moody.”
“No mister. Just Moody.” He laid down his whittling knife, wrapped his warm, tissue paper hand around Ollie’s and gave a gentle squeeze. She could feel the warmth of his friendship pouring down from his heart, through his arm and right out of his fingertips. It was pure liquid. It was divine.
I'd love to read some of your work. Is anyone else participating in Teaser Tuesday?
