Summary: A disillusioned cheerleader jumps off a cliff into the churning water below and gets more than she bargained for when she's saved by the man who's been waiting in the wings. Popularity doesn't always equal happiness.
I remember listing In The Wings as a favorite one shot. I made mention of it when I profiled the lovely SaritaDreaming for My Vamp Fiction. And mentioned it again when I interviewed her. But I never profiled the actual story?? Well, I am rectifying that now!
In The Wings is one of those sweet easy fun reads. As all one shots should be. Well, the easy read part. You want your one shot to give a plot from start to finish and not leave an up in the air ending. Closure is necessary. Now, some one shots are so good that you can see it continuing in to a multi chapter, but even if it doesn't , your still good with what you got.
And what is the story about? The summary clearly tells you: A disillusioned cheerleader jumps off a cliff into the churning water below and gets more than she bargained for when she's saved by the man who's been waiting in the wings. Popularity doesn't always equal happiness.
This has to be one of the best summaries I have ever read. I know summaries are difficult. How do you hook your reader and explain what the story will entail in two to three lines? Sounds easier said than done. I've read summaries that told you nothing. Summaries that made no sense as they had nothing to do with the story. And my favorite ones, "I suck at summaries". Yes, I am going to jump right in to that story.
So after reading In The Wings summary, you know it is a one shot you must read. Aside from the fact, coming from SaritaDreaming, you know it will be good!
Read it, you will love it!
"How long have you... been interested in me?"
My mouth falls open. That's a long time to pine after someone. Now that I think about it, I've never seen Edward with a girlfriend. My heart swells, and I pray that I can live up to what he deserves.
"Love me, Edward," I whisper.
