Another piece of the puzzle…
I forgot to sign up for WeWriWa this week, but welcome to everyone from the Snippet Sunday group and anyone else who wanders in. I’m another year older today, so I blame the lack of remembering on age. 😀
Since the last snippet Psyche and Heather have left the library, before they could get kicked out for making too much noise. They and the guys ate lunch outside on the bleachers, and Psyche kept the conversation focused on the musical to avoid any more discussion of the locker incident.
Right before they went back inside Cam reached out to open the door again and Psyche looked into his eyes for the first time that day. All trace of the leer that had nearly become a permanent fixture over the past few months was gone; he looked scared.
“It’s because my twin sister died when we were kids. It’s like a racial slur but not about my skin color.”
Cam put some of the pieces together immediately and his jaw slackened. Behind him, Heather made a surprised sound, not even really a word, and her eyes about bulged out of her head. Psyche flipped her hair and walked away, not checking to see if either of the other guys had heard or what their reaction would be. She walked away slowly; she would’ve loved to run, but had her dignity to consider.
Thanks for reading!
