🎁For You… Okay, For Me Too
Quite honored to post the achievements on tonight endeavors. I have finally completed the first draft of two shorts and I’m ninety thousand words into Tellus 🎉 To celebrate these glorious accomplishments, I’m sharing a snippet from my recently completed first draft, Craving Candy.
Lana leaned over the railing, a cigarette lodge between her fingers and a smartphone in her other hand. Her apron was scrunched on the handle bar, revealing her low-cut skirt and a tattoo of a cartoon dazed snake, ingesting small multicolored pills. She scrolled the page of a website with a midnight background and came across an image of a girl wearing a violet and cyan lingerie with the username Craving Candy. The girl was barely of age and yet she gripped on the bloody whip like a dominatrix. On another photo, she was crawled on top of a dismembered man with blood splattered on her face. She chuckled. “Should have edited that one more.”
Lana was half way through her cigarette when she received an incoming call. She answered through her Bluetooth. “Lana, here.”
On the other line a girl sniffled then with a shaky voice she spoke, “Hey, what you doing?”
“On break.” Lana exhaled a cloud of tobacco then took her gaze to the moon. The girl heaved a cough and Lana winced. “What do you want?” She took another hit from her cigarette, watching the fire burn toward her fingers.
“Come back home. Mom said she’ll forgive you.”
Lana averted her attention to her phone. She clicked the comment section under an image of a promiscuous girl. She read some of the responses. They were either from women marauding on the same gender. Or men who thought of sex as an experiment of finding oneself. Lana curled a smiled to one user. She tapped his profile and it expanded in another window. She pushed herself off the railing, turned then leaned against it. “I told you, I’m working. Plus, I told mom, I needed to settle it myself. Not to mention, I wasn’t looking for her forgiveness.”
As always don’t be shy in the comments. I love to hear from you ☺
