Welcome back to Weekend Writing Warriors and Snippet Sunday, weekly Sunday hops where writers share 8–10 sentences from a book or WIP. This week’s snippet comes immediately after last week’s, as first-year NYU art student Igor Konev has gone to meet the woman with sexy feet and discovers her hair is just as alluring. He asks if she minds company, and they finally have the first proper meeting of their lives. Igor and Violetta met a few times as children, but they never had a reason to become friends, since they lived in different states.
She turns around, revealing very large, deep brown eyes and a face without any makeup. “Who are you? Have we met?”
“I’m sorry to disturb you, but I noticed you drawing, and I’m an art student. Maybe we can exchange ideas about subjects and techniques. I also think it’s really swell how you’re a southpaw. I am too. You don’t find very many left-handed women, or at least I don’t. Please, may I sit down? I really enjoy meeting other southpaws and art students.”
