Hello all! It’s my first posting on Weekend Writing Warriors. I’m so glad that a few new memes have popped up. For those from the old Six Sunday, it’ great to see you all (online) again. For those who are not familiar with me, I’m Frank and I write YA fiction. For the past year, I’ve been sharing snippets from my novel in progress. On WeWriWa, I intend to continue sharing from this novel. Don’t judge until you’ve read my snippets.
In this snippet, my main character, Ryan, is at a diner with his brother Miguel. They’re waiting for Cammy, the other main character, to arrive but it’s been over 45 minutes and she hasn’t arrived.
Fifteen more minutes had passed and still Cammy hadn’t showed up. Checking the clock on the home screen of his Smartphone, Miguel titled his head from side to side. Ryan pinched the skin of his throat as he kept one eye on the front door, the other looking over the devouring trucker through the large multi-paned window. Even Tracy, who was drumming her fingers, began to suspect something fishy.
“The hell’s goin’ on Ryan?” asked Miguel. “This chick comin’ or what?”
“Miguel!” Tracy hissed, her voice low. “Don’t refer to women as chicks!”
*note that Tracy is Miguel’s girlfriend
