It’s week twenty-eight of the flash fiction challenge by Flash Fiction for Aspiring Artists, check out their blog and join in or read others’ posts and be inspired.

I think I’m back on track and will be back to my regular blogging soon. I feel like I’ve missed so much during my hefty writing goals, but the book is finished and the synopsis tucked away. Wish me luck when they announce the mentee list for Pitch Wars and hopefully my manuscript title is on it! Until then enjoy a little young adult southern romance.

Read mine below and feel free to leave a comment. Enjoy!

I KNOW (156 words)

“Delilah, wait up!” Adrian called.

Delilah looked at the overpass above where her best friend’s head disappeared. Seconds later he skidded down the rocky embankment, his tattered Converse sending up dust into his black hair.

“Don’t go,” he said.

She walked passed him, the waning summer heat causing her to sweat. “Ain’t nothin’ for me here.”

“Sure there is.” Adrian fell into step with her. “Who cares if yo’ daddy left? An’ no one listens to the girls at school. The same with church, you got all the God you need right in here.” He pointed to his chest.

Delilah snorted and walked faster.

“Besides,” Adrian said, stopping. “I need you here.”

Delilah stopped but didn’t turn around. “Now don’ go sayin’ things you don’ mean. I know liars when I see them.”

“Then turn around.”

Delilah turned and took in Adrian’s gaze. With a grin he said, “And I know love when I see it.”

  8. I love the sort of seesaw effect you created between what is explicitly and implicitly said. Excellent job with that, the voice, and the feels. Also, great to know you’ve finished writing/editing your book (at least for now :-P) and the synopsis! Lastly, I’m excited for you about PitchWars (I’ll keep you in my thoughts, too)
