It’s Weekend Writing Warriors time. This week, I’m sharing an 8 from another chapter in my novel. In this snippet, Ryan’s brother, Miguel, shows up and meets Cammy. Some of you may remember, Cammy stood Ryan and Miguel up for a dinner meeting and Miguel is holding that grudge against her. This 8 begins after Ryan introduces Cammy to Miguel:
“’Sup?” she greeted him, repositioning herself in her chair to face him.
“’Sup?!?” Miguel folded his arms, lowering a brow and studied her. “Do I look like one of your BFFs, kid?”
She shrugged half-heartedly.
“Don’t try that shit with me, kid! Say, you were supposed to meet us all for dinner a couple of weeks ago and you never showed up. My girlfriend and I didn’t appreciate comin’ down here for nothin’.”
“Got wasted with some friends,” she said casually.
As we can see, Miguel is blunt yet Cammy remains calm. Next time, we’ll see more of this scene. Thanks for your comments. Happy Canada Day to all of the Canadian participants.
