Cammy Stands Up to Ryan’s Brother

It’s Weekend Writing Warriors again. I hope you all had a wonderful Fourth of July/Canada Day, or a great week in general. I’m sharing another eight, which comes from the scene I shared the last week. Not appreciating her response, Miguel proceeds to ask Cammy a series of questions which irritates Ryan. Cammy, on the other hand, remains unnerved.


“You’re not gonna bring Ryan down,” Miguel declared. “Tell me the truth kid, what are-”

“My name’s not kid, Miguel.”

“Excuse me?”

“Ryan told ya my name, so use it.”

“You listen to me, don’t-”

“I never listened to my dad, so what fuckin’ chance you got? You wanna talk to me, do it like a real man, not like some macho dick.”


Cammy has got lots of cojones, no? I couldn’t believe I wrote this way back when. I always love to see your comments. I’m going to be busy for the rest of the month, so I’ll be on hiatus from WWW until at least August. I look forward to reading your snippets.

    Great snippet! Made me laugh out loud at the end!

  6. Cammy has her rough edges but she comes across as such a real person, starting to feel like I know her. Terrific snippet!

    She’s got a pretty big chip on her shoulder. Good for her!

  8. The girl’s spunky. nice 8.

  9. The question is, will he listen?

  10. She’s rude, but she has a point. Her name isn’t ‘kid.’ I always hated it when adults talked down to me when I was a teen.

    I love her response to his macho bullying. Nicely done, Frank.

  12. You go Cammy! Girl definitely has some brass ones, that’s for sure.
