This week I chose the prompt 'Have a character play a guitar.'
Here is a sneak peek at what you'll find in chapter 8:
Grateful to be out of the hospital after a prolonged stay, Ethan slowly got out of Chris’s car. Moving slowly and walking with a weird gait, he ascended the steps and opened the door to his house. Entering the living room, the first thing he saw was a huge banner that said “Welcome home Ethan.” Looking around the room he saw all of his friends and a couple of his repeat customers, some crying tears of joy and relief that he was alive and on the mend.
Tears were flowing freely at this demonstration of love and friendship. Everybody carefully hugged Ethan, telling him how happy they were that he was still alive and in one piece as they left. Soon it was just him, Chris, Troy and Alicia.
As they settled in, Alicia began, “Ok, here’s what I know. Patrick is being charged with hit-and-run, attempted murder, multiple counts of rape, assault with a deadly weapon, and invasion of privacy. He’s also been charged with threatening to murder Chris.”
“Assault with a deadly weapon?” Ethan wanted to know.
