For those of you who have been following Sam’s narrative of the Dance Club scene, the last six were posted two weeks ago. But, I thought some of you might possibly be interested in reading the scene straight through, so I have posted the whole chapter as a sample here. It’s a WIP; I am open to criticism; and comments are open on that page if you feel like leaving one.
On to this week’s six!
Set-up: In this flashback of Sam’s, he recalls a day about three years earlier. Delilah has Asperger’s Syndrome, and since being injected with her brother’s nano-bugs, it takes very little to trigger a meltdown. When Sam and his friend Tommy first brought Delilah to their safe house, she astonished Sam by plopping right down on her new bed and making herself comfortable. In the scene below, it’s a month later, and Sam has just asked her what she liked about the room.
Instead of answering, she asked,“Who won the ’92 world series?”
“Toronto.” She was lying on her stomach on her bed, knees bent, ankles crossed, and shaking her head with her eyes focused on the crossword puzzle. “Um…try Blue Jays.”
“Blue.” After filling in the answer, she looked around at the walls and said, “It’s the right blue.”
