To go to the doctor or not...
Hello! Another week has gone by and it's time to post snippets of our work in progresses! Today I decided to post about the story that I'm working on for Robert and Juliana. I still don't have a title.
In this snippet Mark confronts Juliana about not making a doctor's appointment like he told her to.
"I'm really sorry okay. I promise that I'll see a doctor soon." I said, turning to look out at the snow again. Oh how it must feel to be a snowflake. All you get to do is fly around in the open air. There's nothing to be afraid of.
"You'll see one today." He said, shaking me out of my thoughts.
"What?" I asked incredulously, turning back to face him. He couldn't be serious. I knew that he wanted me to go, but he had never made me an appointment before...and he wouldn't now.
"I called in a favor and got you an appointment to see my friend. You know, the one's whose card I gave you."
I began to panic, but then realized that he forgot something. "It's New Year Day. Everything is closed, including doctors' office. I have to go back to work tomorrow, so I can't go."
Thinking that I had made my point, I reached for a mug to pour myself some coffee. I really didn't like coffee. I only drank it because I loved how hot it was in the morning and the bitter taste of it reminded me that I was still alive.
"You're right Juliana, most doctors' offices are closed. However, since Robert owns his practice with a few other doctors, he can go in to it whenever he likes, even on holidays. So, I want you to put down your coffee because I know that you don't even like it, go take a shower, and get dressed."
I slammed my coffee mug on the counter, spilling coffee everywhere, and turned to face him.
"How could you do that?! I was going to make an appointment!" I shouted, stomping my foot on the ground, and wrapping my arms around myself. I felt like he had betrayed me. He went behind my back to schedule an appointment that I told him I was going to make.
"Don't go stomping your foot at me young lady! Keep up this attitude and I don't care whether your mine or not, I will spank that bottom of yours until it glows brighter than your night light!" He said, in a low tone than was scarier than if he would have just shouted at me.
Is Juliana going to go see Robert or is she going to be disobedient and take Mark up on his offer to spank her bottom...
Now go hop around and see what other authors' have posted. You'll never know what you'll find! Have a Happy Hump Day! ;-)
