#WeWriWa Not Your Bitch

I'm giving you 8 sentences from Not Your Bitch, which is currently available from Amazon. It's the story of Zoe, who has such low self esteem that she continues a bad relationship rather than risk being along. Linc is a werewolf who has made it his mission to show her how much better she deserves.

“Are you toying with me?” she asked.
Linc frowned, confused. “What do you mean?”
She sighed and turned away. “I had boys do it in high school. They'd pretend they were interested to get me wound up and then laugh when I thought it was real.”
“Who did that?” Linc asked, his voice again a growl and his still-hot blood boiling again.

Poor Zoe. Please head over to read all the other offerings from the Weekend Writing Warriors.

  4. I think a lot of women (and maybe men) can relate to her situation, but I admit I wasn't expecting his reaction. Interesting!

  5. There's a lot of emotion in this short piece of dialogue. Makes me interested in both of them and the dynamic of their relationship.

  7. It's hard to trust when you have been let down so much before. It sounds as though Linc is a much better bet - if she trusts him.

  9. I though girls did that to boys in high school. I didn't know it could go the other way.

  10. This made me think of a girl in grade 8 who was picked on. One of the boys (not me) set her up for a humiliation by pretending to like her. So this does happen.

  11. This happened to someone I know, and it's really difficult to recover from a blow like that!

  14. Oh, yeah, this happens a lot in middle school. Poor girl. I hope he's not setting her up, too. Good snippet.

  15. Sometimes people can be terrible... but sometimes they can be wonderful. The problem is taking the risk to find out which!

  16. Ugh. Reactions like those pathetic boys were precisely why I never let anyone wind me up.

  17. Sounds like it's going to be tough to gain her trust. Nice except!

  18. Altogether too familiar a feeling. No wonder she has self-esteem issues. I hope Linc shows her that's not true of all guys. Great snippet.
