Forgive me, friends and followers, for I have lapsed. It has been two weeks since my last post.
What can I say, Odyssey has been crazy. A fun kind of crazy, in places, but definitely crazy. I’ve decided to stop sharing from “The Aurigae Express” and start with the beginning of a story I had critiqued this past week; the new revision of “Gotta Have That Look.” I hope you enjoy it. It’s about teenagers and genetic injections. I’ve shared some from an early draft with Six Sentence Sunday, but this is mostly a new plot
At eight thirty on Monday morning, the teenagers of Hanford, California gathered in the courtyard square of Hanford High to see who had changed most over the weekend. Jimmy swept the crowd hoping to catch a glimpse of Diane, hoping she hadn’t changed a bit.
“Freckles!” Stephanie exclaimed. She wrapped her arms around Bryan and planted kisses on his cheeks. “How did you get them so quickly? You went in for your shots a day and a half ago. Do you feel sore?” She backed away a little and traced one finger over Bryan’s skin, staying away from the red spots.
