Happy Wednesday, friends!
I'm having a hard time with my JuNoWriMo goal. We'll see how the next week and a half go. I need to figure out a backstory, and I feel like it's out there waiting to be caught, but I'm having a hard time waiting. I'm usually much more a seize-the-story kind of writer.
Anyway, here are 6 more paragraphs from my Agent Ko story. She is still talking with her roommate, Chun-Hee on their first night together at the Academy.
“No beds here,” Chun-Hee said. “No blankets either. But I say if you can manage to get some sleep, you should. They brought in at least four other new recruits today. That means tomorrow will basically be hell.”
Ko eyed the empty corners of the room, wondering if one would hold more chance of privacy than another. “How many of us are there here?” she asked.
Chun-Hee slid her legs out of their impossible stretch and got on her hands and knees. With a loud exhale, she left her palms flat on the ground, straightened her legs, and lifted up until her body formed a perfect triangle with the floor.
“Number changes all the time.” Chun-Hee spoke as easily as if she were reclining on a couch or riding on a bus. “They just got rid of seven or eight after the last round of testing. I assume that’s why you and the others are here.”
Ko didn’t know how she felt about being a replacement. So Ryuk had found others first, others that had looked more promising? Maybe the Party didn’t have as much faith in her as she initially thought.
“Anyway,” Chun-Hee continued without any indication that she planned to move out of her inverted position, “Ryuk will give you all his famous pep talk sometime tomorrow I’m sure. Anyone who’s still in the program after breakfast will go on to meet the director.”
