I’m continuing from my YA WIP, Love Conquers. Full blurb can be found by clicking the Love Conquers page on my blog.
This snippet takes place in a flashback where heroine, Melissa, recalls the day after her boyfriend dumped her. Melissa’s sister, Ashley wants her to get out of bed and threatens to tickle her if she doesn’t. POV is Melissa’s. Ashley is the first to speak. Creative punctuation has been used to meet the sentence limit rule.
“Okay, I wantcha to, like, pick something you and I can do cuz I’m all yours for the rest of the day. Seriously, anything you want, money’s no object. Buuut, it can be lying in bed or binge-watching Netflix on the couch, so get your ass outta bed and make a choice!”
“And if I refuse?”
“I’ll tickle your feet for hours and hours.”
My eyes bulge as I gasp sit up and scoot my feet away from her. “Noooo, not that, okay you win!”
Ashley lips frame a playful evil grin as she wiggles her fingers. I hate having my feet tickled, and I know she’ll tickle mine until I literally pass out, so I’ve got no choice but to give in. I don’t even know how I let Chris tickle me every time we chilled at each other’s homes.
That should get Melissa out of bed! This is the last snippet I will share from this scene. On to a different one the next time I participate. Comments are most welcome and appreciated!
Well, my trip to Budapest and Zagreb was great! Another two countries crossed off my travel bucket list! Another six weeks and my teaching for the year will be officially over. I’ve enjoyed the experience being abroad but I’m looking forward to returning home to see family and friends.
