So, guys today is the day! Make sure you hop around to all the other bloggers to read all the 99th pages!
Today I give you the 99th page of my first YA novel, EMERALD'S KEEPER, which has been shelved.
Yeah, I'm a cop out. I'm not putting my WIP up. It isn't ready for public scrutiny. ;)
Page 99 of EMERALD'S KEEPER:
All Class One creatures were part of the challenges. Those were things like the rhests and the spates, which were alligator-like creatures that lived in the trees. It also included squirrels that have been turned. A few Class Two creatures were thrown in for good measure. They were things like the wolves with heat vision and frogs that shot poisonous darts. The only Class Three creature was the phantom, and no Class Fours were allowed.
“What are you over here brooding about?” Chelsea, a junior Earth, plopped down on the couch beside Mandy.
“I’m in the challenge today.”
Chelsea’s freckled face scrunched up. “No fun.”
“Yeah, I’m nervous.”
“You’ll be okay as long as you remember all the spells Mike has drilled us with.” A hint of a smile played at Chelsea’s thin lips when Mandy’s cheeks flushed.
Mandy didn’t know why her cheeks felt the need to betray her like that. She pursed her lips and glanced sideways at Chelsea who burst out laughing.
Anna marched over from the cluster of boys she had been flirting with and raised an eyebrow at Mandy. “What could possibly be so funny?”
Now Mandy started giggling.
Anna obviously didn’t appreciate being left out. “Fine. Be that way.” She flipped her hair and spun around to leave.
“Anna, don’t be like that.” Mandy attempted a serious face, but failed miserably as the giggles continued to escape. “We were just laughing because I’m so hopelessly easy to read.”
Chelsea nodded, her gray eyes wide. “She’s hopelessly in love with Mike is what her problem is.”
“Ah!” Mandy swatted at Chelsea. “I am not!”
There you have it! And....now I remember why I shelved this. lol
