WeWriWa—Plans for next Saturday

weekend_writing_warriorsveteransbadge_4

Welcome back to Weekend Writing Warriors and Snippet Sunday, weekly Sunday hops where writers share 8–10 sentences from a book or WIP. This week’s snippet comes a few lines after last week’s, when Violetta suggested Igor go to an art museum with her next Saturday. She suggested a few museums, and Igor said he’d rely on her decision, since ladies should come first.

Violetta decides on the Metropolitan, and asks if Igor can meet her there at 1:00, after they’ve each had lunch. Her mother, however, has a slightly different suggestion.

“Why don’t you come over here first, and we can all have lunch together,” Granyechka suggests. “It’ll be better if you can drive Violetta there and back.  I hate how often she takes the subway, but she doesn’t like walking very long distances, not even to her campus and back.”

Violetta gives her mother a strange look.

“Is this a religious thing?” Igor asks. “You don’t think it’s modest or ladylike to walk more than a few blocks alone?”

“A lady can never be too careful,” Violetta says, her face appearing to flood with relief. “You never know who’s lurking about, even in nice neighborhoods.”

“Say, how’d you like to come to my birthday party the day before we go to the Metropolitan?  It’s at the Kalvik penthouse, if you know where that is.”

    It’s nice that her mother has no problems with Igor, but her concern is obviously for other reasons than her safety. Great snippet!

  8. Er, I don’t think they ever agreed on where they were having lunch before that topic change. LOL. Appropriate to say ignorance is bliss on this one for Violetta?

  9. I wonder how often he’ll give her an out for questions she doesn’t want to answer? Eventually she’ll run out of luck…

    Violetta is determined to appear physically unchallenged for as long as possible … but at some point, the truth will come out.

  13. Better be safe than sorry. Though I don’t know if the subway is much safer than walking, but at least there are more people around.
