It's Sunday and that means it's time for eight more sentences from my WIP, Shades of Blue. Please also check out the other Snippet Sunday folks and the Weekend Writing Warriors. Something for everyone among these talented writers!
Last week Sam and JoJo had their first kiss, and it was everything and more that JoJo hoped it would be. This week skips ahead to the next day at school. They're talking about what happened when Sam's scumbag step-father and his step-sister "Backseat Britney" did when they heard the fabricated story they told JoJo's parents about somebody trying to grab her in the woods.
“What’d she do, get excited about the chance for a new boyfriend?”
“No, she said something about being used to perverts, and I think he slapped her.”
That threw me for a second. I could barely believe it, but I actually felt bad for Britney. “Russ is such a total SOB, no wonder she’s so messed up.”
Sam looked at me the way my mama did if I remembered to make my bed without being reminded. “That was good of you to say, JoJo.”
I rolled my eyes and said, “I still don’t like her.”
Shades of Blue is still a WIP, but you can buy my other books here.
