Snippet

Unedited and completely random. But here it is. Something. A sampling. A snippet.

“She has absolutely no respect for me. For any of us. She treats you girls like absolute rubbish and never really teaches anyone anything,” Kris ranted while Faye danced around him.

“Oh, but she’s so incredibly wonderfully brilliant,” Faye chirped, still dancing. Kris grabbed her hand and brought her to a stand-still.

“Please. You are making me dizzy,” he said. She giggled, and flopped down on the grass next to him. He leaned back on his elbows, and said “Maybe we should go away? Go find our own planet. Get away from this madness.” He sat up, and smiled, “Yes, that is exactly what we’ll do. You joining me?” he asked, and winked at her.

She glowed more than usual, smiled and said “Sure!” And then the glow faded completely, and she said “but what about Poppy? I like working with her... for her... you know what I mean.” She frowned, and said “I still have so much to learn. No,” she shook her head, “I can’t leave now.”

Kris stood up quickly, and pulled her up by her hands, smiled his killer smile – the one that always worked on the girls - and said “I will teach you. Come. Please.” He raised his eyebrows and said “Come on, don’t make me beg.”

Her glow returned. She smiled, closed her eyes tightly and said “Ok.” And then let out a big sigh. And hoped she wouldn’t regret giving into his smile later.

I have no idea what your story is about, but I can say that I find Faye is delightful and this snipped made me smile.

Also, she's going to regret it isn't she? She is, I just know it.

Faye is a new and slightly unexpected character. She just popped up out of no-where, and I am kinda liking her too :)

And yes, I suspect she is going to regret it. As all girls who meet Kris do, in the end.
