Welcome back to Weekend Writing Warriors, where participants share 8 sentences from a book or WIP. This week’s snippet comes a little after last week’s, and is primarily a rewritten version of the original 1997/1999 scene.
Cinnimin Filliard has snuck over to see Levon Kevorkian a week after they met, while his hosts are at church. She’s just revealed to him that she’s a half-orphan, having lost her father right after her tenth birthday. He then told her about missing his own parents, who are waiting to come to America. Cinni says he’s taken away her smoking appetite by reminding her of her father, and says he has to cheer her up. He ends up putting a premature end to the meeting with his response.
This snippet has been modified somewhat to fit eight sentences.
“I love your beautiful brown eyes.” Levon leaned very close to her and gazed into her eyes. “I can see your soul in your eyes.”
Cinnimin backed away from him. “I’m not the type of girl who kisses guys she barely knows.”
“Oh, no, that wasn’t what I wanted. Do people really do that so quickly in America these days? I’m sorry if I scared you or made you think the wrong thing about me.”
