Hi! Welcome to Wip It Up Wednesday! I didn't even know this was a thing, but now I am all signed up and joining. Look at me, I am such a joiner!
This is from my new work in progress. It is yet to be titled. It's also yet to be edited, and might change...
I actually normally never share stuff from WIPs because it makes me feel like I am letting people into my house and I forgot to put pants on.
This time is a little different though, I am almost finished writing this one, and I actually know how it's going to end! Unheard of around here! Normally I pull up straight to the end and I'm thinking "Boy, I hope these crazy kids can work it out..."
Okay, enough chit chat. Let me set this up for you. Caitlin lives next door to Simon. He is actually friends with her roommate and the two have been nothing more than casual acquaintances-- which makes it awkward when Caitlin wakes up in Simon's bed the morning after a wild party.
"I'm moving in with Amanda, well, just moved in yesterday, so I guess I'll see more of you." She smiled, but when he didn't respond she shifted on the edge of the bed, her hands nervously twisting in her lap.
When she moved to stand he caught her arm. "The next time I have to save you, there will be consequences."
She let out an uncomfortable laugh, "What?"
"That's the problem with girls like you, they don't know their own limits."
"The problem with girls like me?" Indignation laced her voice, she puffed her chest up, which was cute as she was swimming in his t-shirt and her hair was a halo of frizz around her head. She pulled her arm out of his grip. "I can take care of myself."
"I'm sure you can, but I'm warning you. The next time you get yourself into trouble like that I might just give you the spanking you earned."
Her eyes went wide and her face flushed red.
He expected a retort, why had he just said that? Yes, he wanted to paddle her bottom until it was cherry red. She had no business drinking so much and putting herself in harm's way. But he barely knew this girl, if she told him to go to hell it would be merited.
She stepped around him, "I need to go," she mumbled, as she scurried out his bedroom door
He didn't even hear her feet on the stairs before the front door slammed shut behind her. He shook his head, it figured, he finally got a pretty girl in his bed and she flew out the door the next morning without a second glance.
