WEEKEND WRITING WARRIORS #37

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors. Each week participating authors post 8-10 lines from a work in progress. My contribution is continuing from KATHERINE: Pride & Prejudice continued... Book Two (Hopefully will be ready for release Fall 2017)

Lord George and Katherine Bennet (Kitty) have arrived at Longbourn and Kitty is sitting on the horse in front of Lord George, who has his arms around her. *gasp*
Lord George slid off the horse and reached up for her. She placed her hands on his broad shoulders and with great care he lifted her off Buttons. Katherine fully expected him to set her on her feet, instead, with little effort, he swung her up into his arms and turned to face her parents.
"I apologize for this breach of decorum, but Miss Bennet has been injured. Do you have somewhere I may take her?"
"Right this way, Lord Kerr." Mr. Bennet said, waving his arm toward the front entrance, obviously  recognizing Lord George from Lizzie's wedding.
"Oh, my nerves, my whole body is trembling. Hill, I need my smelling salts," Mrs. Bennet cried out and held the back of her hand to her forehead, swaying on her feet.
Mortified by her mother's familiar antics, Katherine fought the urge to burrow her face into Lord George's shoulder. How could Mama behave so badly in front of such an esteemed guest, the son of a Duke, no less?
There you go. The all too familiar Mrs. Bennet has shown up :)

WEEKEND WRITING WARRIORS #36

Where has the week gone? I feel like I was just here seven days ago *snicker*
Lord George has helped Katherine onto his uber cute horse 'Buttons' and they should be on their way to Longbourn... or not

He was wedged against her so tight his voice resonated through her body and his essence, the sheer maleness of him surrounded her. The sensation was as much frightening as it was exciting. All her romanticized day dreams of Lord George Kerr having his arms around her did not come close to the real thing.
All too soon the thrill of having his arms around her subsided as with each rocking step Buttons took, pain spiraled across her ribs and it took all her concentration to take in shallow breaths.
"We're almost there, Miss Bennet, I can see a house through the break in the trees."
She lifted her gaze and almost wept at the sight of Longbourn. Both her mother and father exited the house to greet them, no doubt having been warned by a servant they were coming up the drive. She expected a full on assault by her mother, and was not disappointed.
"Whatever happened?" Mrs. Bennet's mouth gaped open at the sight of Katherine seated in front of Lord George, his arms around her in a familiar fashion.

And the saga continues next week.
