💗It’s Day 14 – the LAST day – of the #TopsyTurvyRelationships writing challenge over on Instagram! Yesterday Lucie Bellerose stood in for Flame on his first day at work. Today author T.L. Brown visits Templeton, and Emily Swift is not far behind. Here we go!
Thanks to all the TALENTED Turvy writers and AWESOME readers who made the writing challenge fun! Thanks to my fellow cohosts / fellow authors listed below!
Today’s Writing Prompt: One loves it, the other hates it.
Templeton scowled at the book in his hand. Seconds later, the bell sounded again.
“You know I cannot be compelled by you, Brown.” He continued to read Off Track, by Neil Bullock.
🔔🔔The next time the Turvy bell rang, it was as though author Saffron Amatti’s main character Lucas Rathbone was back at his bell-ringing hobby.
🔔🔔🔔Templeton winced. The racket was louder than Lucie blasting a Black Talons album through his sound system. Raven Xerces’ guitar wailing drove a sonic spike through his forehead. He wished author Jennifer Brasington-Crowley would’ve made her protagonist a pianist.
The noise stopped.
“Seriously?” T.L. Brown stepped into the penthouse via an office door. “Can’t you play along and have a good time? Turvys are fun writing challenges.”
“A good time?” He snorted. “Why don’t you ask Lucie how much fun she had?”
“I don’t want to hear it,” Brown snapped. “If you cared so much about her, where in the hell have you been? And I’m not just talking about during the Turvy.”
Templeton rose to his feet. “I’m there when it matters.”
The two glared at one another.
“I heard the 🔔.” Emily Swift strolled into the living room. “Nice place, Templeton.”
The Salesman mumbled something about unwanted visitors and erecting stronger wards.
“What did you think of the Turvy?” Brown asked Emily.
“I don’t always like what we do, but yeah, I mostly loved this one. I relived meeting Jack, we won The Newlywed Game, and I ate one of Tuesday’s lunch puffs.” Emily twisted her lips to the side. “Tara had fun, too, but she won’t tell me why.”
“See?” Brown turned to Templeton. “Not everyone hated it.”
“Although Lucie and Rabbit are commiserating as we speak. I don’t think they enjoyed it,” Emily added.
“They’re together right now?” Templeton’s cheek twitched.
“Yup. I just came from Lucie’s.”
Templeton’s gaze shifted to the closest door. “I think this concludes the Turvy. You both can show yourselves out.”
Two steps later, Templeton door traveled out of the penthouse.
