Snippet Sunday - My WIP "Auf Wiederseh'n" 23/02/14


Welcome to Snippet Sunday !
 
The story so far is, Sadie, born and raised in Australia, found her grandma's diary after her mother's passing. Intrigued by the diary and her mother's German background, she's on her way to Germany to meet her family over there.

 



The lady’s gentle touch on my arm wakes me and she informs me we’re about to land in Singapore. I thank her and look around taking in the commotion on the plane. It’s busier than the Vic Market in Melbourne. Honestly!

Anyway, I grab Grandma’s book and curse that I wasn’t careful enough and it slipped on the floor when I’d fallen asleep. But a good check-up tells me it’s still in good order. I carefully pack it in my bag and follow the flight assistant’s instructions. My ears give me a hint they don’t like it and the momentary discomfort distracts me from the bumpy landing and the nauseous feeling creeping up in my stomach.

“Honey, are you right?” the lady asks me.

I nod. “All good. Just not made for flying,” I joke.

 

   
Thank you all for stopping by!

  1. Maybe not made for flying, but she must reach her goal so I'd be doing the same thing!

  6. Her respect for Grandma's book caught my attention, giving me a lot of signals about her character.

  7. I like the details of her flight! I've been experiencing it with her---and I'm not sure I'm made for flying, either!
