Six Sunday – 01/13/13

I can’t believe we only have three weeks of Six Sunday left. I really hope that we can find a way to keep it going after it officially ends; Sundays won’t be the same. Thanks for taking the time to read my six – it’s always appreciated. This week, we continue from my novel where Cammy has been telling Ryan about her abusive dad. In this six, she gives Ryan an example of what her dad did after she came home from a school dance. She speaks first:

 “Remember one time when I was fifteen, I came home from a dance after my date hooked up with some chick while we were on the dance floor. My dad was sittin’ on that damn couch, watchin’ some stupid game. I’m all in tears, and he turns to me givin’ me a funny look. After I told him what had happened, know what the fuck he said?”

Ryan slowly shrugged, giving her a dazed look.

“Said, ‘It’s whatcha get for dressin’ up like a whore, get used to it’,” she said, her voice breaking and her eyes welling up.

Next week, I will share one more piece of Cammy’s dad. It might be the worst of his treatment of her. Visit the Six Sunday link, for the complete list of many authors, like myself. Follow the action on Twitter  by searching #sixsunday

Enjoy your day!
