Welcome back to the Weekend Writing Warriors again. I’m so enjoying seeing my old friends and finding new authors.

Once again I’m continuing from my newest WIP, Speed Date. This snippet immediately follows yesterday’s Sweet Saturday Sample (view here). Roberta is at a speed dating event, her first time, and in this 8, she’s just agreed to go out with Dater #8. Good call or bad?
