M is for Maria

1:00 AM


“Maria,” Winter said softly, taking a step toward her friend. “Maria, how are you doing?”

“I’ve been better,” Maria said, still with her back toward her friend. She was resisting every urge within her to spin around and throw her arms around Winter and cry until she could cry no more. She wanted more than anything to feel someone’s loving embrace, but she knew that that could spell danger, so she forced herself to keep aloof.

“They are, like, letting me go. They found me guilty, but…”

“I know; I was watching,” Maria cut in.

“Well, maybe they will, you know, let you go, too.” Maria could hear her taking a few steps closer. “Maybe they’ll give you a pardon, too.”

“My charges are going to be a lot more than aiding and abetting. They know that I have done more than just give The Followers food and a place to sleep. No, they know that I’m a leader and have known for a long time. They’ve already decided I’m guilty. My sentence has been written for a long time.”

    1. Watching Star Wars for the first time when I was sixteen. I loved some of the ideas, but not the New Age philosophy that is so heavy within it. So, I decided I would use the genre to write my own, God-honoring story.

    1. I write down the idea somewhere and that is about it. Most of my plotting and brainstorming come while writing the story. Spending to much before writing dampens my enthusiasm.
