Visit the official page of Weekend Writing Warriors. A fun way to read samples of writing from a variety of genres. I’m glad you stopped by my site. I can’t believe I haven’t participated as much this year as I’ve done in the past. It’s been a wacky winter/spring for me. I’m offering an eight from my YA romance novel, Let Go, which is a WIP.
Ryan meets the mystery girl who threw a piece of paper at him in class. When he asks her why, she just shrugs. Ryan naturally doesn’t accept this, so he persists. The girl is the first to speak:
“I dunno…seemed kinda tense in there, stud.”
Ryan flinched, fanning himself with his shirt to keep cool under the blistering mid morning sun. She took a drag and stared at him with sleepy eyes.
“I wasn’t tense,” Ryan said defensively, “you don’t – “
“You were, stud, I saw ya.”
“Why you callin’ me stud?”
She yawned and brushed away some cigarette ash from her jeans. She maintained a relaxed posture, and not even the heat of the day nor the constant passing of students seemed to bother her.
She does a great job remaining so calm, but she’s being a little cocky not answering Ryan. He doesn’t learn her name until the next chapter, which is why she remains nameless. Your thoughts are most welcomed.
One more week and the semester will be done for me, though I’ll be doing research for my thesis over the summer. Have a great Sunday everyone!
