THIS IS A ROUGH FIRST DRAFT. Written as raw blog posts in a stretch of both my imagination and writing practice. There are errors, that is what a rough first draft is. A rough isn’t perfect, grammatically or structurally. Those are the things that get worked out in the edits and rewrites. Will the final draft look anything like this? Have to wait and see. For now, enjoy.
Previous post – Part First
Scene – after they have placed body in Hearst TJ goes back in after checking the back gate is locked to get coffee, having said their ’see ya/goodbyes’….
Half way across the lot to her vehicle, Sam hears a noise. Stopping, she slowly turns around in a circle looking near and far for the source. She focuses for a second on the hearst. Seeing nothing amiss, she pauses waiting to hear another noise, instead she felt a light breeze of wind upon her bare face. Thinking it was the wind rustling a leave or branch she continues walking toward her vehicle. Unable to shake the feeling something else was there, she checked around her vehicle. She took one more look around about twenty feet out from the car, and clicked her doors unlocked so the interior light would come on. She didn’t take the empty bag to the trunk as she normally did, instead she tossed it across to the passenger seat, sitting down in one swift motion, locking the door from the key ring still in her right hand, she shivered a little as she looked around her. After checking the mirrors. She looked straight at the entrance she had just left, and the shiny black vehicle parked in front of it. TJ locked it, she would later recall thinking. Sam started her vehicle and decided at the last moment while putting the car in gear to take one drive by the hearst just for her own reassurance. Nothing had felt right since they walked in that building.
Just as Sam reached the hearst TJ came out, he waved. She pulled up along side, leaving room for TJ to open his door.
“Hey, girl, didn’t get no coffee. Can you pick some up with the food?:
“Sure, no problem. You be careful on the drive back ok?”
TJ nodded his head, “You be careful with my chocolate pie on the way to the home.”
“Will do, in a few.”
Waving each other off, Sam waited until TJ was in the vehicle and motioning for her to get going before she drove off. The big black hearst following her little car out of the lot. At the first corner she turned left and he right.
Back at the entrance they had just left the second hearst pulled up in front of the entrance.
