“Yo TJ! Did you see that girl who was with me like two seconds ago?” Edwin slurred.
TJ narrowed his eyes like a stoned criminal.
“Tall, brunette, long legs, pig-tails, glasses. Did you see her?”
TJ patted him on his shoulder, a huge smile cracking onto his face. “Right Bro. I saw her alright. In my dreams.”
Edwin shook his head, confusion fogging his brain as TJ laughed at him. He hadn’t dreamt her up; had he? She was real. She had to be real. He could still feel her soft skin on his fingers; taste her purple lips on his tongue.
“What’s that on your face?” TJ asked, staring at him like he had something atrocious growing from his mouth.
Edwin wiped his mouth onto his hand and a streak of coloured gloss smeared across it. Edwin smiled and licked his bottom lip. He knew it. She was real.
This chapter, being shared from Edwin’s perspective with Abby out of the picture, is a fun twist that I am rather proud of. I know it’s unconventional, but I think it really works!!
I think this short bit also gives you a good hint of my writing flavour. I was going for New Adult sass. Have I met the mark?
