#SixSunday: Virgo (WIP)-Dance Club Scene #2

This is my 101st blog post. That’s not relevant to Six Sentence Sunday, but yay me! And you, for reading them!

Last week, I shared the beginning of my alternative timeline WIP “Virgo.” Sam and Delilah are at a condemned building where they have organized a flash rave (flash mob + DJ = instant dance party). The message that Sam posted to her FaceSpace wall told the crowd she would go on at 11:14.  She is watching Adam (aka AMG) from the balcony above the booth.

Delilah needed to feel the whole room to work…the other DJ’s style, the crowd’s energy, and a dozen other factors Sam took for granted. Among them, Adam had concerned him the most. He had come off a SoCal 7-n-7 sleep deprived and sugar high before a security incident at LAX turned a six-hour flight into sixteen. But Sam’s worry was unfounded; the man was on time, and his As Tears Go By remix impressed her. Just like that, her smile was gone again. She reached up and grabbed the rail, pulled herself up to her feet and disappeared into a dark stairwell.

7-n-7 = seven raves in seven days

  1. I'm a little confused by some of the pronouns (probably because we were dropped into a scene). But you handle the lingo really well and you're doing a great job of setting up the scene. (Where did she go? Why?)

  2. I like the picture you painted of the rave. I can definitely relate to a flight turning much longer, after a surprise middle of the night landing in Vienna when an elderly passenger got sick on our way back home!

  3. First of all, I am totally honored to have made your list. Thank you! Second, I love your set-up here. I'd love to know what made her stop smiling at the end, and the line about the flight was funny! ;c)

  4. Excellent work, Wendy–love the insight into this world I know next to nothing about (all right, nothing). The tension builds steadily, and the setting for both character and scene is done with very few words, yet it comes through and flaps wings, alive. Great job, and thanks for sharing!
