Welcome back Snippet Sunday folks and Weekend Writing Warriors! Time for another eight sentences from my WIP, Shades of Blue.
This scene takes place after school the day after all the drama went on in the woods. Sam and JoJo are walking home together and run into Chip Wiley.
We talked about the usual school stuff the rest of the way to the Minit Mart, and we were still holding hands when we stopped to get a Coke. I didn’t see Chip and his two stupid friends behind the comic book rack until it was too late.
“Look, guys,” Chip said as they walked toward us, “Sam finally got up the nerve to hold her hand, and it only took him ten years to do it. Just think, Sammy-boy, only five more years and you’ll be feeling her up like I did yesterday.”
Before Sam could say a word or do anything to stop me, I grabbed a can of Coke from the tub of ice by the counter and chunked it at Chip’s head. It bounced off the cowlick at his crown and landed in the middle of a loaf of Wonder Bread on a rack nearby. He stumbled backward into Freddy, and they fell against the comic book rack and knocked it over.
“How did that feel, Chip,” I said, “because it felt pretty damn good to me!”
Guess everything that happened didn't make JoJo lose her mojo, huh? ;-)
Shades of Blue is still a WIP, but you can buy my other books here.
