Weekend Writing Warriors

Another Sunday, another round of Weekend Writing Warriors, and another eight sentences from my new WiP, Finding Rupert. Another snippet of rural life, in which Edward is on his way back from trying to find a pony for the son he hasn't had much to do with in previous summers, only to find a visitor waiting for him and apparently unimpressed with his gardener's handiwork:

***


"Have you thought what Rupert's going to enter at Bakewell Show this year?" Kate stabbed her trowel into the earth next to one of the more impressive rosebushes.

"Good morning, Mother." Edward waited for her to stand up, and realised she'd found a pail from somewhere to drop the assorted dandelions and other unwanted green things into. "Isn't that weeks away yet? And what makes you think he'll want to enter any classes?"

"Why wouldn't he? You must have some calves or something on one of the farms: he could pick one out to show."

It's tough being a duke sometimes. Especially when your mother's WI is in fierce competiton with the WI of the other vilage you just happen to own...

To see what the others have been writing, go over there and give folks some comment-love.
