Clarissa tries to make amends… #8sunday… Snippet #3…8/10/14

Hi Everyone! I’m back again doing the #8sunday with the Weekend Writing Warriors! I really enjoyed it the other weekend.  I really loved reading the other snippets! This week’s excerpt from my debut novella The Trouble with Playing Cupid shows the scene where December’s best friend and agent tries to make up for her part in the failed love match.

  “Yes, Clarissa? What is it?” She kept her voice cold.

  “You can’t stay mad at me forever, you know.” Her best friend said anxiously.

  “Well I’m just going to have to give it a good ol’ college try, now won’t I?”

  “I’m sorry, okay? I shouldn’t have trusted Trace to handle that with tact and subtlety. It was my fault. Don’t blame Terrence.” Clarissa bleated.

  “I didn’t. I knew it was you and that butthead from the start.”
