Hi, guys. Wow, I had no idea a 20k novella could give me so much headache. Still working, plodding, plotting, sweating, editing, brainstorming, etc. Basically doing everything I can to save myself from a total trash-and-revamp.
Anyway, here are 8 paragraphs from my current Ko WIP since it's the 8th month. She's talking with her fellow recruit, Jin-Sun, who has just divulged a family secret.
“You really shouldn’t have told me that.”
“I know.” The words fell to the ground like dead weight.
“You should have been more careful.”
“I know.” He held her, and she instinctively nestled her head a little closer to his cheek. He rubbed her head with his thumb. “You won’t tell, will you?”
“Of course not.”
He turned toward her then, his nose only a centimeter or two away from hers. “I’m glad you know.”
She swallowed once, trying to will away the imaginary noose she felt slipping around her neck. “Don’t mention it,” she finally answered.
If she was lucky, he never would.
