This weeks Teaser Tuesday is a little snippet of Thea and Whisper. Whisper is already sick of her crap and it’s like page negative five. Whisper is one of my favorite characters to write. I love the taciturn, snark, and unexpected dirty that comes from his mouth. Here, he’s just being a loyal friend.
“You always say her name like that.” Thea pouts.
“How do I say whose name?” I ask carrying them to the couch and sitting down to get them on.
“Michaela. You say it like it means something.”
I look at her and raise my brows in disbelief. “It does mean something. Freedom. Friendship. Loyalty.” I shake my head.
“You don’t say my name like that.” she whinges.
“And how do I say your name?” I ask, not believing that this is a conversation.
“Like I’m a pain in your butt.” she childishly complains.
“You are a pain in the ass.” I state, exasperated. “I’ve waited forever for you and you have only just started speaking to me. Let me rephrase that, you just deemed me acceptable to speak to.”
