Hello and welcome to another week of Weekend Writing Warriors. I’m sharing another eight from my novel in progress. I apologize to those on Hump Day Hook – work has kept from participating and commenting on everyone. I’ll try and get back on it as soon as I can.
Set-up: Cammy explains how she got drunk, which caused her to miss dinner with Ryan and his brother. Cammy is the first to speak.
“After work, a couple of peeps wanted to sit at the beach and drink some beers,” she confided, sending another text.
“But you knew we were gonna meet at the diner at six, right?”
“Yeah, but I needed to blow off some steam, had a rough mornin’.”
“Had nightmares the night before and felt like shit the next day,” she clarified. “Thought one beer wouldn’t hurt, but one beer turned to two, then three, lost count after that.”
“And you didn’t even have the courtesy to call and tell me this?”
She shrugged and sighed, her eyes half-lidded as she shoved her phone into her bag.
I know what you’re thinking: Ryan should run. Perhaps he should, but he isn’t able to since he knows the real Cammy is still there. Click on the link for the complete list of participating authors and check their snippets out.
