It’s Weekend Writing Warriors again. I hope you all had a wonderful Fourth of July/Canada Day, or a great week in general. I’m sharing another eight, which comes from the scene I shared the last week. Not appreciating her response, Miguel proceeds to ask Cammy a series of questions which irritates Ryan. Cammy, on the other hand, remains unnerved.
“You’re not gonna bring Ryan down,” Miguel declared. “Tell me the truth kid, what are-”
“My name’s not kid, Miguel.”
“Ryan told ya my name, so use it.”
“You listen to me, don’t-”
“I never listened to my dad, so what fuckin’ chance you got? You wanna talk to me, do it like a real man, not like some macho dick.”
Cammy has got lots of cojones, no? I couldn’t believe I wrote this way back when. I always love to see your comments. I’m going to be busy for the rest of the month, so I’ll be on hiatus from WWW until at least August. I look forward to reading your snippets. For the official list of participating authors, click on the Weekend Writing Warriors link above.
Hard to believe it, but it’s actually the last official Six Sunday. I want to first thank everyone who consistently read and commented on my sixes over the past year – you’ve made a difference on my writing process. Your support came at a time when my first mentor kept saying “This story will never sell; you need to write a story about a car chase.” I might have given up on it had it not been for your supportive words, so thanks. I’ve enjoyed reading your sixes as well. I understand that Skye Warren is intending to start a new Six Sunday, so I’m crossing my fingers that there’s going to be enough people signing up.
For the last six, we move away from Cammy’s bad childhood memories and into a new chapter. Ryan’s brother Miguel has learned about Ryan’s friendship with Cammy and wants to meet her. Ryan tells Cammy about his brother wanting to meet her, and she agrees to it. Ryan rambles continuously about how his brother is judgemental and rude at times, and Cammy senses that Ryan might fear Miguel. She’s the first to speak.
“You afraid of your brother?” she asked, lifting her head. He fidgeted at the loop of his jeans and blinked rapidly.
“No…of course not,” he replied timidly. Along with his quick temper, Miguel was helping him with his tuition and rent and Ryan knew he would cut him off in an instant.
“Don’t believe ya, stud. Can sense the fear in your voice.”
Regardless of what happens after, I’m going to continue posting snippets of my stories. If Skye Warren’s new SSS does not kick off, then I will post snippets on Saturdays (They will be seven sentences). So follow my blog as well as me on Twitter so you can stay updated. It’s been a pleasure meeting you all and hopefully we can continue to stay connected. Sign up on Skye Warren’s link, if haven’t already done so. I hope you all will keep supporting me on completing my novel.
