WeWriWa—Invited inside

weekend_writing_warriorsveteransbadge_4

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, when 23-year-old Yuriy Yeltsin-Tsvetkov came to see his 18-year-old crush Inga Savvina before his furlough ended. To avoid confessing his real feelings, Yuriy asked if she’d be his penpal.

“Sure, that’ll be great.  I never had a penpal before.  If my father were home, I’d invite you in to see my new room.  I trust you, but you know how people will talk.  I don’t want to ruin my reputation when I just came here.”

“This is Greenwich Village.  Do you know how many Bohemians live here?  I’ve heard this neighborhood even has people who prefer their own kind, if you know what I mean.”

Inga blushes. “If you say so, you can come in, but I’d prefer to be outside.”

  1. I wonder if she does understand his reference to homosexuality? She seems very sheltered. I like her proper ethics about not wanting to be in her bedroom with him. Very sweet.
