I’ve been doing some horrible, horrible things to my characters lately, and it’s kind of bumming me out. So, I went through my finished novel, Embrol, searching for a happy moment to share and came up with the scene below. Now, I know it’s not a happy moment, but it’s one of my favorite scenes, so it makes me happy, and it is all about me, after all. ;)
Just a little setup: Olivia’s mother was killed in a car accident, and she’s dealing with it, but Jack, the boy responsible for the accident, won’t leave her alone. He insists he has something important to tell her, and he’s very persistent, so she finally agrees to hear what he has to say to get him off her back. He’s supposed to meet her after her last class. Oh, and she thinks he’s totally hot, but desperately wants to hate him for his role in her mother’s death. Instead she feels drawn to him, and it’s really starting to annoy her.
