It’s Weekend Writing Warriors time! Thank you all for spending part of your Sunday to visit my site. This week, I continue to share another 8 from my short story entitled ‘Just Look Up’. Sunny has just told the young battered woman that she ‘doesn’t’ have any spare change to give, so now we see her reaction; she’s the first to speak:
“That watch looks like it cost more than what my sister makes a month,” she implied, glancing at the silver Rolex on my wrist, a sweet sixteen gift from my aunt. “You’re lyin’,” she added. “You prissy rich blondes are all the same.”
I hunched my shoulders, furrowing my brows. How could some chick with messy hair and a beaten up face make such a pretentious assumption? “Who you callin’ a prissy blonde?” I bellowed. “You don’t even know me, so like go beg off somebody else!”
Comments are most welcome and appreciated. I’ll be taking a workshop next weekend, so I’ll miss next Sunday’s posting. Visit the link to Weekend Writing Warriors for the official list of participating writers, and be sure visit a few of their sites for more interesting snippets.
