I’m a little late posting this – one of those days when you wake up and already seem behind, you know?
My WIPpet today is page 8 (2×4), 15 lines. Cain and the girl he wishes he were dating, Lindsey, are discussing his current girlfriend he’d love to be rid of, Erin. For more wonderful WIPpets, go this link. Many thanks to K. L. Schwengel for hosting.
“You missed a Broncos game? What could keep you from that, cause I know soccer practice was over by five since I had to pick up Caleb.”
“I was dragged to the mall against my will,” I replied, twisting the silver ring I wore on my right index finger.
“Finn made you go shopping again? Doesn’t he have enough shoes by now?”
I snorted out loud, like the total babe magnet that I am. “Yeah, I wish. Um, Erin needed to look for…. some kind of shirt or something. I really wasn’t paying attention,” I said, my head down as I glanced sideways at her. Something flitted across her face, a girl look I was unfamiliar with. Sometimes I wish I had a sister or Ethan was a girl and could interpret things for me. Life would be so much easier.
“Yeah, well that’s what happens when you date those prom queen types. It’s all fun and games until they need to go shopping.”
“It’s definitely not all fun and games,” I muttered.
