This is the freewrite challenge. I am using @mariannewest’s #freewrite prompt to write this piece (https://steemit.com/freewrite/@mariannewest/day-586-5-minute-freewrite-tuesday-prompt-chapter)
Today’s prompt is:
This is part four of a new freewrite series.
Kelly watched as he placed a copy of the Government newspaper down on the table. He didn't appear to have a telephone. He took a sachet of sugar and tore the corner off of it and poured the grains into his cup.
She didn't know what to say. She couldn't remember if she was supposed to initiate the conversation. Was there a code word she was supposed to say? Why had her mind gone blank?
He looked at her as he stirred the coffee, and smiled. "I was expecting someone older," he said. "You are...how old? Twenty?"
Kelly shook her head. "I'm nineteen in a few days time."
He sighed and sat back in the seat. "You are so young. So much of life to experience. I fear I am writing the final chapter of my life."
Kelly bit her lip. Was that a cue for a code phrase response. She couldn't remember. "You aren't that old," she said, not knowing what to say.
He smiled. "No. But I take risks that will no doubt lead to my life being shortened." He leaned forward. "And so do you."
As usual, I started with the freewrite prompt and used themostdangerouswritingapp.com to write the first five minutes (and then popped it into google docs to check for errors and tidy it up a bit):

I had a comment left on one of my freewrites and I have to say, it made my day!
“Hey I got the book and want to tell you how much I enjoyed your story! Loved the twist at the end… you somehow nearly always manage to produce an unexpected twist... Love the care you take with your characters, intertwining them.” @owasco
Voices In The Darkness is now ALSO available as a paperback!
If you want a taster of what is in the book, the video below shows me reading the first 900 words, or so, of my story, The Tell-Tale Dead
