WeWriWa— “A very nice boy”


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 right after last week’s, as first-year NYU student Igor Konev has asked the woman with sexy feet and exotic hair if she minds company. His cousin Luiza, who briefly detained him on the way, now puts in a good word for him.


She shrugs. “Sure, I don’t see why not, but we can’t talk or whisper too long in this part of the library.  We’ll have to move to one of the private study areas.  Assuming, that is, you’re on the level.”

Luiza leans around the left wall of her carrel. “You can trust him,” she whispers. “He’s my cousin, and a very nice boy.”

“Man, not boy,” Igor corrects her. “I’ll be nineteen on Friday.  I’ve been a real man for almost a year.”


Violetta has already become friends with sophomore Luiza, since they’re both at the Washington Square women’s campus, though she hasn’t had a chance to meet Igor yet. In this era, the main campus was up in University Heights in the Bronx, and it would be some years until NYU became properly co-ed.
