I’m Johanna Rothman, and that is 60 Seconds of Johanna’s WIP for December 21, 2023, the place I learn an excerpt of only a minute of some writing in progress.
This excerpt is from a brief story, not but titled.
The dense six am fog muffled the sounds of Angela Vargas’s footsteps. Whereas she was sporting sneakers, they didn’t squeak or make any noise in any respect. The birds have been quiet. Solely the truck that rumbled by, its tires spraying the final of winter’s grit and sand up onto the sidewalk, made any noise.
Typical of early April in Boston. The ugly remnants of winter, plus the bone-chilling chilly have been all that remained. Angela was greater than prepared for spring.
This a part of Beacon Road in Boston’s Again Bay seemed just like the costly half nearer to Boston Widespread. However this aspect was a lot nearer to the assorted universities, with all of the frat and sorority homes. Because of this, Angela didn’t simply scent the truck’s diesel exhaust, but in addition the robust odors of alcohol and vomit.
Angela coughed and breathed out via her mouth as she handed the mess on the sidewalk. At sixty, she didn’t tolerate what she had at twenty. Quiet now, the frat and sorority homes had partied hearty final evening. That’s when her intern, Maria Mendes, had vanished. Proper off the road, a half a block away.
