Time to meet a secondary character from What Happens in Bangkok on Weekend Writing Warriors #8sunday #hotread

Last  week we left Erika having chased everyone out of her club and her getting ready for a possible Triad attack. Now it's the next morning - and I've switched to Darien :-)  Remember - he was in the first club that got attacked but he made it out alive. He called his brother for help. His brother is one of the divas at Erika's club and he shares an apartment with several of the other divas. But today we meet an important secondary character - Sandee.



Darien fell asleep, but it wasn't a restful snooze. Screams, flying bullets and blood filled his dreams, until the aroma of fresh brewed coffee tickled his nose awake. He opened his eyes. Two green eyes and four brown ones gazed at him.

"Sleep well?" asked Green Eyes. "I'm Sandee. Brian told me he gave you my bed. I bunked in with Stewart." He sighed.

  1. Sandee's green eyes make her -- him? -- memorable. I wonder how he/she will be important to the story.

    1. Sandee is definitely a memorable character and a lot of fun to write.

  2. Secondary characters are sneaky. They hijack stories :)

    1. This one was pretty close to hijacking - being a flamboyant diva, but I reined him in.

    1. Darien had a rough day yesterday. He's a little wary at the moment.

  7. Interesting way to wake up and of course they all still have to deal with the aftermath of the gun battle. Can't wait to learn more about the characters and their progress...

  8. What a disconcerting way to wake up. And now who is this Sandee character? I'm sure Darien is confused as hell. What happens next? (I know, 'cause I read the book!) Great snippet, Daryl!

  9. That would come as a shock. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Does Stewart snore? Or is Sandee just upset about not being able to sleep in his own bed? Great character hooks!

  11. Geez, a crowded room - just what you want to find before coffee!!

  12. Divas everywhere! This should be an interesting experience.

  13. While I like waking up to the smell of coffee, not so sure I'd want all those characters crowding in on me. You've got me wondering what's next.

  14. If I woke up with three people staring at me, I would have responded a bit more vehemently!

  15. Love the use of the eye colours as names. Nicely ambivalent. Love the name, too! Super excerpt, Daryl.
