It’s Hump Day…and once again it’s time for our group to share an excerpt from a current book or a WIP. I’m continuing with my new fantasy, coming of age WIP.
Last week we met the four main characters in The Children.
Since they have a free period between classes they’ve gathered in the park across the street from the school.
As the group headed toward their favourite picnic table, Stone’s peripheral vision picked up two older boys staring at Quinn. He turned his head and smirked back at them, she’s mine, then glanced at his girlfriend who had let go of his hand to catch up to Vonny. No doubt to finish their conversation regarding the war of 1812, not surprising since they were both history buffs. Quinn never acknowledged her followers; he wasn’t even sure she noticed them. Males watching Quinn was a regular occurrence. Stone understood why of course. With her blonde-red hair, blue-green eyes and shapely curves, she was impossible to disregard. She must have felt his gaze since she looked back over her shoulder and grinned.
When they reached the table and unloaded their back packs, Quinn and Kelly dashed to the ice cream stand, pistachio for her and chocolate for him. Vonny strolled to the corner store for a cherry coke and Stone dug out a juice from his bag, plopped down on the bench, stretched his long legs out before him, and leaning against the table opened his drink.
