WIPpet numbers for 11th October, 2017:
11 paragraphs for the 11th :)
from Tabula Rasa
Another snippet from Tabula Rasa (Gray Fisher #2).
This novel follows on from The WAG and The Scoundrel, featuring two former undercover police officers, Gray Fisher and Rob Simpson-Stone. Their investigations relate to white-collar crimes (fraud, embezzlement, etc.), and there are also romantic relationship story arcs (however, not between Gray—who is gay, and Rob—who is straight).
This WIPpet snippet follows on from the previous snippet. Rob’s with his grown-up niece, Lois; they’re spending the afternoon together.

“I’m gonna take you out somewhere special while I’m here,” he said. “Belated birthday treat—”
“You don’t have to,” Lois interjected.
“I want to. Not tonight, though.”
“Why? What are you up to tonight?”
“Only the pub. You can tag along if you like.”
“On one of your lads’ nights out? Think I’ll give it a miss, thanks.”
“Dodgy lager and pool followed by an even dodgier kebab…”
“How can you possibly refuse?”
“Like this: no, thank you, Uncle Rob. I’m washing my hair. But you can have one for me.”
“I’ll hold you to that,” Rob said sincerely. His relationship with Lois was back to how it used to be, and that was definitely worthy of celebration.
