Welcome back for another Sunday, Sixers! Today’s post is another short installment from my WIP, Semester of Thursdays. This snippet reveals Meredith Westbrook dealing with an overly amorous suitor on her first Thursday night out with her best friend, Lena Whyte.
“What’s wrong with your friend?” Billy asked Lena, his voice loud enough to carry over the crackling bass.
“She’s sober,” Lena said sadly, as if that single fact should have explained the world’s mysteries.
“And I’m not interested in you,” I said, praying the blunt words would penetrate his thick skull.
“I just want you to know that you’re the first girl to ever turn me down,” he shot back.
I inspected Billy from his brillo-pad hair to his too-tight t-shirt holding him in like a cheap, cotton corset. “I highly doubt that.”
