Below is a sample of what I’ve been working on. Its a story that takes place a couple decades after an environmental and societal collapse, around the time that society is rebuilding itself. In this, the main character (Rosie) is meeting with an intermediary about a job…
“You’re finally here,” A man came out of the crowd and approached Rosie. He was short, middle-aged and ugly, and he was Rosie’s primary source of jobs. His name was Riley Ratigan, ‘King Rat’ to those who worked for him, and like Rosie, people who crossed him didn’t live too long. Mostly because he knew people like Rosie.“What took you so goddamn long, Rosie?”
“Fuck you, Rat,” ‘Fuck you’ was how she usually said hello to people. “You called about a job. Stop your fucking complaining and tell me what it is already.”
“It’s not a job for me,” He motioned to a small table where a man was sitting. He was obviously from a more civil place and looked uncomfortable among the partying raiders. He was also unassuming. Rosie hated unassuming people. They usually turned out to be the worst kind.
…This is just the beginning of the story. If you like it, I can share some of my other writings. Till next time!
