Tuesday Teaser #8

Every Tuesday, I post a teaser for one of my current works in progress. I invite all of my writer buddies to join in!

The rules:
Post a link, image, quote, or excerpt related to or taken from your current WIP.
State the name of the WIP.
Do NOT explain yourself! Resist the urge to wax poetic. This is a hint, not an outline.

We Shall Not Sleep

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

  1. Saffron’s grandmother, Isabelle, arrived rather noisily in the front hall closet three days later, shortly after lunch; her French Bulldog, Leo, barking excitedly and scratching at the door. Isabelle hadn’t had to ring the doorbell for assistance before Saffron, upon hearing tne commotion, raced down the hall from the kitchen where she had been helping Mrs. Knickerbocker make pear sorbet for dinner that night. She had to turn the large shiny brass knob with both hands as she heaved the heavy oak wood closet door open. There stood her grandmother, in a beautiful black linen pencil skirt with matching high collared jacket, on the welcome mat inside the closet, with her blonde hair swept up into an elegant French twist, and Leo straining at his harness to get into the house. Her grandmother’s eyes narrowed.
    “Were you running in the house?” She asked her granddaughter calmly, but firmly.
    “Sorry,” Saffron answered. “I was just…” Her grandmother’s free hand went up, palm facing out, in her well-known signal for silence, “so excited,” the girl lowered her voice and then whispered, “…you were home.”
