Last time I posted a brief glimpst at Father Benjamin. This week you get to see him in action as he takes charge or a strangely out of control six year old!
Instead of the usual contrite expression at her Aunty Sabina’s scolding, Lydia pounding her little fists on the table until the plates rattled. When Tess reached to grasp her daughter’s arm, Lydia twisted away, jumping from her chair and screaming, “No! Leave me alone!”
She fled to the end of the table where she was abruptly caught up in the arms of the friar, who lifted her from her feet and swung her into a semi-circle in order to plant her firmly in the chair closest to him. When she would have sprung back up, the gentle push of his hands on her shoulders stilled her motion.
I hope you like the snippet this week that I posted for Elizabeth. No doggies in it, so I'm just glad that crazy little girl doesn't live with me! Be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors and Snippet Sunday Authors for more great reads!

I could visualize the scene quite well from your snippet! Putting on my Moderator hat for a moment, I didn't see the link back to Weekend Writing Warriors site. Maybe it was my browser, but can you please make sure this is one? Thanks!

Sorry. I think it's live now.
10/28/2017 11:43:46 am
I now know!

Either he has a way with children or he's very forceful. I haven't made up my mind which it is.
10/28/2017 11:44:44 am
He has many ways about him...a very diverse individual.
8/13/2017 02:47:17 pm
Hope this means he knows what's going on with her.
10/28/2017 11:46:01 am
He knows everything!
8/13/2017 05:04:34 pm
Sounds like he underestands what's going on. I hope he can help her.
10/28/2017 11:46:43 am
He saves the day!

Sometimes kids need more showing than telling (a lot like us writers, hey?). His picking her up and swinging her around to the chair worked better than anyone scolding her. Or maybe he has magic powers. LOL
10/28/2017 11:47:26 am
She needs a lot of help right now!
8/13/2017 10:19:09 pm
I like it! Put her in her place. Hope she isn't in for too much scolding.
10/28/2017 11:48:09 am
Scoulding is the least of her problems, poor dear.

Very visual scene.
10/28/2017 11:48:56 am
All that pounding is giving me a headache!
10/28/2017 11:49:38 am
Yes, he's a take-charge kind of man!
