Working on my first fiction book

This week for the blog, I wanted to share the first chapter of a new writing project I am working to bring to life.

Chapter 1: The first encounter

Roxanna watches Sebastian from afar. As she looks like her calm and normal self. Nose buried deep into her Stephen King novel. That's the first he looked at her and smirked she didn't know if it was because of her book or if he thought she looked cute. Then at lunch, Roxanna was sitting at a table and a douche that she was dating.

Sebastian thought that she should be with someone who valued her as an equal person to them. This was a new school for Roxanna, and he knew she was a junior this year. He was starting his senior year.

After two months of being at her new school, she felt her isolation and depression creeping back in. so she spent more time in the library. Douche guy asked to hang out after school and her FFA meeting was over. "do you want to chill after your FFA meeting?" asked douche guy. "yeah sure sounds like fun," said Roxanna.

The FFA meeting ran about ten minutes late. So, when she showed up late, he made some bullshit excuse about how she did not value his precious time. "I do value your time, I'm sorry but we have a competition coming up in two weeks and my partner's lab notes were unreadable, so I had to re-write them." Said Roxanna. She sat down he asked her if he could touch her breast. "hell, no you can't, it's my body and we only been dating a week." Said Roxanna.

her ride pulls up and she says see you tomorrow. On her way home, she crushed herself up for not cursing him out. Guys always saw her as an object, not a human being. She allowed herself to be treated this way.

The next day in the morning before the first period Roxanna in a chair reading book two in her current series she was reading. As she got up to leave douche guy was in a row of books kissing Alexandria supposedly her best friend. Roxanna held in the anger all day. She walked to into the FFA class got in and sat at her desk. She opened her book to find a note that read, "he doesn't deserve you, a beautiful attractive smart girl. A surprise awaits you at lunch" from your rescuer.

Lunchtime came Alexandria got in line with Roxanna. Roxanna debated do I cuss her out for kissing my boyfriend or do I tell him he is a cheating piece of shit who is now fine to screw whoever. "hey. How has your day been", says douche guy. "I prefer that you leave me alone.", says Roxanna. "what crawl up your ass and died.", says douche guy. "well do you even truly care.", says Roxanna. "Yes, I do.", said douche guy. "well this morning as I was leaving the library. I saw you and my ex-best friend making out. If that was not bad enough. Your hand was on her breast enough though she stuffs her bra. So, I think you can kiss my ass.", said Roxanna.

Sebastian was talking to Joshua. Who told him about the douche guy cheating on Roxanna, "apparently douche guy cheated on Roxanna in the library this morning.", said Joshua? "with whom? Is she okay?', said Sebastian. They are walking toward the cafeteria when Roxanna yells "get off my asshole."

Sebastian runs over to help her. Then he quickly walks away with her. All Roxanna was thinking was she needed a shoulder to cry on. She and Sebastian were talking about things. Roxanna mentions the note she got yesterday. She felt safe with Sebastian and she told him. "I prefer to be called Roxy after you saved me today.", said Roxanna. I prefer a storm instead of Sebastian.

Always a suggestion to wait until the first draft is finished before starting an editing round.
