General Thoughts: So after the first two days of meeting the word count goal, everything kind of went downhill. I would write a sentence one day, and maybe two hundred words the next. It wasn’t until today I finished chapter three. I changed the few parts of the story I had decided on, and it took me awhile to figure out how I wanted it to go. I think it ended up pretty good, but now I get to go on and struggle with chapter four.
“Look,” Terrance sighed. “You both messed up. Let’s get out of here before someone catches us.”
“Yeah, you wouldn’t want that to happen,” Lynette announced her presence.
She watched, amused and sipping on her slushie, as they turned to face her as one stepping closer together as a team as if they weren’t just arguing with each other.
“Long time, no see.” She smiled and tilted her head. “So tell me about these powers of yours.”
The trio looked at each other shuffling about uneasily.
“Aw, don’t be shy. I’m just curious,” she said.
They still didn’t answer. Distantly, police sirens rang. Four heads snapped up in panic. Lynette looked back at her old friends to see them ready to flee.
“Wait!” she called out. “Let me go with you.”
They looked like that was the last thing they were going to do other than wait here for the police.
“Just watch and decide.”
Lynette threw out her hand toward the metal gate, pictured grabbing onto it, and then pulled her hand back. The gate, instead of simply opening like she had wanted, completely separated from the rest of the chain linked fence. The surprised gasps from her audience filled her with pride, but that swiftly turned to panic as the gate was still speeding toward her. She dove to the side, cradling her slushie in the nook of her arm. The gate hit the wall behind her with a bang.
“So, now will you let me go with you?” Lynette asked, cheerfully.
