Today marks the end of the second day of NaNo! My stats are as follows –
Not too shabby, in spite of several over-acheiving friends of mine… *sideways glance* Anyway, here’s a snippet from chapter two of Unforget, which I managed to complete today! (I’m going to be gone tomorrow morning! I’m going to have a lot of catching up to do in the afternoon….I foresee a late night…)
“I hate you,” Moon growled, but the growl turned into a waterlogged cough.
Cayne shut his eyes.
“I’m serious,” the girl continued as soon as her throat cleared. “Why were they chasing us, huh?” She hit his boot with her hand. “Psycho, I’m talking to you!”
He sat up, his elbows digging into the metal stair, and glared at her. “The next time I’ll just run and let you die.”
She glowered at him. “I hadn’t done anything; there wasn’t any reason to drag me—”
“You brought me there.”
She fell silent, but her eyebrows remained drawn together and her lips stayed pursed in annoyance. “I’m going to ask you for the third time,” she said finally. “What did you do?”
Cayne rolled over onto his hands and knees and shook his buzzing head. The numbness was starting to leave, and the pain was taking over again.
“Did you get your memories or whatever?” she prodded.
He glanced over his shoulder and shook his head.
“I swear if you don’t give me a proper answer, I’m going to push you back in the water.”
“Malachi is dead.”
Her mouth slowly fell open. “You killed him?”
He nodded again.
“And you’re still alive?”
His glance was sarcastic enough.
“What on earth were you thinking?” she screeched. She smacked his leg, then smacked it again as if once just wasn’t enough. “You really are insane! You know now they think I brought you there and they’re going to look for us until they kill us! What memories is it you wanted, exactly? Can’t you live without them?” She stopped to take a breath and he remained silent while her chest heaved and her glare wordlessly cursed him.
“No.” He leaned his head onto one of the steps. “I can’t.”
On another note, I drew Vey again! (Model: Shiroyama Yuu) Drawing is proving to be very relaxing after a long day of sitting in front of the computer writing. I was excited with how much I liked the end result.
And a Day 2 vlog my frabjous friend Brennan put together. I think we all know this feeling.
