Today is the day and here's my 99th page of my book No System at All:
Adrenaline pumped through his legs and arms. He needed to take action, soon.
“Who sent the text?” Colin asked.
“Russell Harris, my ex. I didn’t even want to do it in the first place. He totally pressured me into it. Thank god it didn’t last through the commercial break.”
A plan formulated quickly. Leah had been wronged on the most personal level and Russell Harris was not going to get away with it. He didn’t know her very well, either, so he wasn't breaking any rules.
“Lizzy, can I borrow your cell phone?” She handed it over to him without thinking. Colin typed away but didn’t hit send. He headed over into the jock territory of the lunchroom where Daniel Walker sat with his lacrosse team. At Millbrook High school the Lacrosse team was the football team with weapons. Another field Daniel dominated.
As he approached the table, he realized it was like those documentaries, where there were thirty lions at a water hole. He was the elderly gazelle with a limp leg. He swallowed the extra saliva in his mouth and said, “hey Daniel.”
He put down his gray hamburger and nodded at Colin, “what’s up?”
“Is your team having a Pre Season party, and if so, would they like my band to play it for free?”
It wasn’t Daniel who spoke up, but Jared and three other guys Colin didn’t know. “Hell yeah!”
Daniel smirked, “what do you need?”
“Back up, in about two minutes.”
So did that make you want to turn the page? Do you want know what Colin's planning?
Go and check out the other people doing the blogfest-- go forth and meet some new people!
Thank Alicia for setting this all up!
