I’m sharing an eight from my novel, Let Go, a new adult contemporary romance. In this eight, my main characters, Ryan and Cammy, are hanging at the beach. Along with them is her roommate, Jordy, and her friends Raz and Duffy. They are congregating at a bonfire, just after sunset when a young man arrives. He is actually another friend of Cammy’s.
On with the eight:
A buzzing sound filled the air as a moped approached the beach. Ryan squinted at a braided blonde young man riding it, as he parked at the sand’s edge. Wearing an unbuttoned blue shirt along with dark shades, he shuffled towards everyone with his hands inside the pockets of his khaki shorts and broadcasted, “Crush has arrived, everybody!”
“Just missed the sunset, ya lazy ass,” Cammy greeted.
“Sorry Stumpy, I was at this like awesome party.”
“Yew score?” Duffy asked.
“Dude, met this like totally cute babe. Think she was like French or Italian…had super cute eyes and hot buns.”
I’ll continue with this in two weeks – next week’s kind of too close to Christmas, and I’ll be New York City, then Florida that week. Love to know what you think. I’ll do my best to visit everyone’s posts, but I’m going to be snowshoeing most of the day. So if I don’t get to your posts, it’s not that I’m snubbing you. Happy Sunday and Merry Christmas to everyone!
