WeWriWa—Cafeteria Calamity

Welcome back to Weekend Writing Warriors, where participants share 8 sentences from a book or WIP. This week’s sentences come a little bit after last week’s, during Cinnimin and Levon’s second meeting in the school cafeteria. Cinnimin and Levon literally bumped into one another, and Cinni began raking him over the coals for having spilled their lunches and made a huge mess.

She gets even angrier when they knock heads while leaning down to clean up, and begins ranting even more. Levon’s only contributions to this conversation are unheeded chastisements about how a lady shouldn’t use such vulgar language, let alone in front of her admirer. They’ve now attracted the attention of a lunch lady, who demands to know what’s going on.

***

“This dope knocked right into me and made me spill our lunches!  Jerk!  I hope someone does the same thing to him, to give him a taste of his own medicine!” She threw some food back onto her tray and stalked to her table in a white-hot rage.

Violet smiled and sidled up to her as she took a seat. “Cinni, we wanna start a new club to get back at Sam for all the misery and annoyances she’s caused us over the past few years.”

“You dare smile at me when I just was made a public fool of by that knucklehead Kevorkian!  Do you think I care about your stupid club right now?”

    I kind of think she made a fool of herself there, by being so angry about it. Hot temper on that one.

  2. Very realistic, that she wouldn’t immediately switch gears mentally to worry about their club. Poor Levon though…he needs a hug probably. Enjoyed the snippet as always!

  3. I agree with Veronica. No switching gears just yet.I felt her anger. What a girl. As for me in high school in the forties it would have been an oops moment. Good intense eight.

    Whoa, out-of-proportion, hormone-fueled rage! (No sane person misses high school.) She’s not seeing how she’s overreacting right now–very realistic, though she’s going to be apologizing later.

    Cinni is at the age where she’s intensely worried about what other people think of her. Except, of course, for the one person who’s opinion should matter . . .

    I hope she grows up enough soon enough to realize what a true prize Levy is!

  6. So realistic! I could feel her anger. Great 8!
