I’m sharing snippets from a wip called The First Nation. Last time I checked in with the Weekend Warriors, Raveena (our mc) was pining for something of her own. Her thoughts were interrupted by a co-worker. We start there this week.
I lifted my light-stick to show his face; the smile in his voice had stayed on his face.
“You’ve let the pack catch up. That’s not like you.”
I glanced down behind him and sure enough, the other dozen or so Harvesters in our pick-group were clamoring up the cave’s wide walls, their curses and laughter and breathing filling the emptiness. “I felt bad for you,” I finally said. “It’s a shame on all of your houses to let me out-climb, out-pick and out-scavenge you.” I turned my back on him and started climbing again, talking over my shoulder loud enough for the other climbers to hear: “But since you’ve spat in the face of my good will, I’ll just go on and gather what aborul I had planned on leaving to help out your meager baskets.”
That’s my 8! Now, get on over to the Weekend Writing Warriors and check out some other great 8s. :)
