Saturday Snippets



     Another Saturday full of snippets has rolled around, and I'm happy to be participating again in Saturday Spankings. I’m afraid my TBR list is growing at an alarming rate. I’ve been putting up snippets from Cassie’s Space, coming in December and also from many works in progress. There is a lot of Cassie in my head. Today's snippet is from this first book.
This time Cassie has gotten herself if more hot water than ever. She knew from the time she began this deception, that Tom would be furious if he ever found out. She’s lied and kept him in the dark for months, but she knows she can’t keep it up. She’s decided its time to come clean, but its not easy. She had planned to tell him as they drove to their vacation destination, but she just couldn’t make herself begin. Now, at dinner, she still she hasn’t managed to say a word.


At dinner the food looked superb, I tried to eat, but I just couldn’t. I felt like my throat was closing up. I moved the food around on my plate as Tom ate. When the waiter asked if we’d like dessert I quickly shook my head no. Tom often teases me that my favorite part of dining out is the desserts. I could feel him looking at me as I stared at my plate.
“Cassie? You haven’t eating a thing and you're so quiet. What’s wrong?”
My heart began pounding as I realized I’d reached the moment of truth. “I have something to tell you.” I managed to get out.
I don’t know what my face looked like. But Tom immediately asked, “Are you sick, is something wrong?”
I shook my head no. Tom looked at me a minute longer, then finally said, “It’s not something little is it, Honey?”
Again I shook my head no.
I could tell Tom was tense as he paid the bill. We didn’t talk on the way back to the hotel. Tom held my hand as we walked, a good thing. I was fighting the urge to bolt.

Please go by and check our all the other great snippets.

I love Tom's consideration for Cassie. He might not like hearing what she's about to tell him, but he obviously cares very deeply for her. Great snippet, PK.

What made me laugh is the detail about enjoying dessert more than the meal. Reminds me of a friend who eats his dessert in the restaurant and puts most of his meal in a doggy bag. Those little details are what make Cassie's story come alive. You've got such a nice voice in these stories.

I need to know what's bothering her. It's clear that it's something serious.
Tom's concern only adds to my curiosity.

Tasty little tease, PK.

I like the line "it's not something little, is it honey" but yet he doesn't press her in public, he's willing to wait... Lovely details

PK,
your tasters are very appetizing.
It's taken me a lifetime to learn patience, I need it now.
Love and warm hugs,
Paul.

PK you tease. The connection between Tom and Cassie is palpable and makes me crave more but your tell me I have to wait until December? Not fair I say! 8 sentences each week is not enough to satisfy my hunger for more of this couple. I love them already.

Such a dreaded moment -- when one has to confess.

 
At 9:08 AM, Blogger Joelle said...

beautiful scene :) I love how he holds her hand. Can't wait 'til this comes out so I can read her confession and his punishment

 
At 9:23 AM, Blogger Suzy Ayers said...

She wants to bolt...hmmm. Makes me want to know. What is it?!

 
At 9:31 AM, Blogger Emily Tilton said...

Wonderful build here, PK! The waiting is the hardest part for her, and the best part for us!

I love that he is so worried right now, but trying to be strong and supportive.
Very well done!

 
At 9:59 AM, Blogger Normandie Alleman said...

I want to know what she's confessing. You're building such suspense. Awesome!

 
At 10:25 AM, Blogger Tabitha Marks said...

I don't think I could wait to spill the details after admitting there was a secret. Can't wait to see what she's hiding!

 
At 10:29 AM, Blogger Natasha Knight said...

I love to read so much emotion and buildup knowing what's coming. So nice!

 
At 11:04 AM, Blogger Celeste Jones said...

Whoever said confession is good for the soul probably wasn't married to a spanker. :) Nice snippet.

 
At 12:48 PM, Blogger PK said...

Kathryn,
I always want the love the two of them share to be the strongest emotion in the story. Thanks, Kathryn.

Ana,
Cassie's personality and idiosyncrasies are so well know to me. I'm glad she comes across as real to others. Thanks for coming by Ana.

 
At 12:52 PM, Blogger PK said...

Thanks, LA. Cassie knows Tom will view it as serious so I guess she better.

 
At 12:54 PM, Blogger PK said...

Tara,
You know how many characters simply write their own lines and we just take dictation. I felt the same as you when I first hear Tom say this.

 
At 1:00 PM, Blogger PK said...

Paul, my dear friend. I love that Cassie and I are helping you practice a life long lesson.

 
At 1:01 PM, Blogger PK said...

Maddie,
You just made my day! I feel the same about Cassie and Tom. I'm having a pretty hard time waiting until December too.

 
At 1:02 PM, Blogger PK said...

Cara,
Trust me, it's not something Cassie does often. I appreciate you coming by.

 
At 1:04 PM, Blogger PK said...

Joelle,
He loves her to death no matter what's she's done. But that sure doesn't make the spanking any less intense.

 
At 1:05 PM, Blogger PK said...

Suzy,
Cassie usually waits until she gets caught, the idea of telling on herself is really freaking her out.

 
At 1:07 PM, Blogger PK said...

Emily,
Knowing what's coming is killing her - not only the spanking, but Tom's anger and disappoint.

 
At 1:07 PM, Blogger PK said...

Katherine,
Thanks for coming by. Tom will always support her, but he can't imagine what's going on.

 
At 1:08 PM, Blogger PK said...

Normandie,
LOL, I think Tom felt the same way. Glad you came by, thanks.

 
At 1:10 PM, Blogger PK said...

Tabaitha,
I hope people still want to know in December. Knowing what the spilling of this secret could cost her, she more than willing to wait.

 
At 1:10 PM, Blogger PK said...

Thanks Natasha, sometimes it's hard to write because I can feel Cassie's emotions so well.

 
At 1:11 PM, Blogger PK said...

Boy Celeste, you sure got that right! Confession does not come naturally to Cassie, good for her or not.

 
At 1:53 PM, Blogger Renee Rose said...

Aw, poor Cassie, you really showed her anxiety over coming clean.

 
At 3:15 PM, Blogger Abbie Adams said...

Oh no- why must you end there? How long until we see more? Wait? You were supposed to tell us about her swollen feet!

 
At 6:48 PM, Blogger PK said...

Renee,
Yes this secret coming out has Cassie worried for sure. Thanks for coming by.

 
At 6:51 PM, Blogger PK said...

Abbie,
I can't tell you all Cassie's secrets - who would buy her books if I did that, LOL! I'm really jumping around in her stories grabbing something from her and another from there. Hopefully, it will be years before the end to all the snippets will be told - is that mean?

 
At 9:10 PM, Blogger Constance Masters said...

Lovely snippet PK. It’s left me very curious to know what she’s done. I’m glad that he didn’t press her though and he’s giving her the chance to tell him in her own time :)

 
At 11:45 PM, Blogger PK said...

Constance,
In spite of being too strict about some things, Tom is a real jewel. He loves Cassie so much

 
At 6:34 AM, Blogger kiwigirliegirl said...

Oooh are you going to reveal her secret?

 
At 7:46 AM, Blogger Roz said...

Great snippet PK, I love the level of detail and how you really bring out her anxiety. Also love how Tom doesn't pressure her to spill the beans.

I'm with the others. Curious minds want to know what it is!

Hugs,
Roz

 
At 7:58 AM, Blogger PK said...

Kiwi,
On yes, the first book will reveal this. You just have to wait until December.

 
At 8:01 AM, Blogger PK said...

Thanks Roz,
I'm glad you can feel her anxiety and I'm hoping you will be curious enough to get the book.

 
At 2:54 PM, Blogger Patricia Green said...

Wonderful segment. I really need to know what she's confessing. I hate the waiting! Argh! :)

 
At 8:03 PM, Blogger Sue Lyndon said...

I love the build up here. The tension is just sizzling!

 
At 7:23 PM, Blogger PK said...

Patricia,
You hate the waiting? I've wanted to publish this 'story' in my head for more than forty years - I'M tired of waiting too! LOL

 
At 7:24 PM, Blogger PK said...

Thanks for coming by Sue, the tension wasn't the only thing sizzling that night.

 
At 12:11 AM, Blogger Minelle Labraun said...

Man I can just picture the tension when they get to the hotel. If I know them both the end is clear!

 
At 12:28 AM, Blogger Cat said...

Poor Cassie and Tom...when she doesn't want dessert...it's serious! You can really feel the tension!!

Blessings,
Cat

 
At 5:33 AM, Blogger Angie Sargenti said...

I'm excited to see what she's been up to, but I have the feeling he's going to spank the truth out of her.

 
At 7:43 PM, Blogger Corinne Alexander said...

Oh my goodness there is so much tension in this scene! Beautifully done!
