Weekend Writing Warriors

Another Sunday, and another round of Weekend Writing Warriors. I'm still working on Finding Rupert as my main WiP, and making pretty good progress with the help of picowrimo. This week's eight jump ahead a little, and Rupert has come down from the attics to show off his finds to his father:

"That's not your grandfather's suit, is it?" Other than a small darn above the left elbow, the fabric appeared barely worn; Edward's father would never have packed away such a serviceable set of garments when he could have got years of use from them. The length of the legs was about right, judging by the inch or so extra they hung on Roo's lower legs, and the jacket looked a little loose across his shoulders. Definitely the former property of an adult Peveril.

"Grandmama thinks they belonged to Great-uncle Alfred," Roo said. "They were in one of Great-grandmama Eugenia's trunks."

"We'll find you some boots, and get the suit altered next week," Edward decided. "Why don't you run off and get changed while I clean up here, then we can take this beauty for a run before dinner?"

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