Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors. Eight sentences, post them and get constructive feedback. Today, I’m offering an eight from my novel, Let Go, a new adult romance. This scene happens shortly after my last eight (which seems like ages ago.). Here my main character, Ryan, is chatting with Crush and Raz, when Cammy thinks Crush is messing with Ryan, so she starts attacking Crush. She’s drunk and is only teasing, and everyone knows this. Her roommate, Jordy, is the first to speak.
Here’s the eight:
“She’s wasted, pay no attention to her,” Jordy said teasingly, downing her sixth beer.
“Am not!” Cammy shot back. “They’re messin’ with him…no-body messes with my man, I’ll ass yer kick, Crush!”
She reached up and pinched Ryan’s cheeks with two fingers, as she gazed at him with sleepy eyes. “Lisa’s so right, I’m a luuucky girl.” Her beer-fumed breath filled his nostrils, and Ryan chuckled as he wrapped his arm around her cool skin, getting lost in the moment.
“Think you’ve had a little too much,” he quipped, patting her forehead.
“Yeah, like nine beers now,” Jordy added, pointing to the pile of empty beer cans next to Cammy’s flip-flops.
*Note: Lisa is Cammy’s older sister, who already knows about Ryan.
Cammy’s drinking plays a pivotal part in the novel, and is one of her weaknesses. Your comments are much appreciated and I look forward to reading your snippets. For the official list of participating authors, click on the link above.
Sorry I haven’t been participating the last couple of weeks. I’m usually busy during the winter skiing and snowshoeing on weekends. Until April comes by, I’ll only be participating every other weekend. Hope you understand. I’ll share one more eight from my novel, then share eights from my short story, The Burning Night.
Have a good day everyone!
