Cassie Mae, over at Reading, Writing, and Lovin' it! AND Angie, over at Live to Write...Edit when Necessary are hosting I'm Hearing Voices Blogfest . . .
Dialogue Introduction is part two of this fabulous blogfest.
Rules: Have two characters introduce each other using only dialogue — no backstory, no internalization, just dialogue between the two. Max 250 words.
The dialogue is between Kara and Simone - rivals from my current WIP.
“I’m not sure why you bothered to show up. They’re here to learn about me.”
“Considering I’m the main character, I think I have a right to be here.”
“Nice, Kara. Pull the MC card. Sooo typical.”
“I see another salsa christening in your future.”
“Don't you dare. I smelled like onions and jalapenos for a week!”
“It’s called a shower. Try it.”
“Very funny, Simone. Anyway, we’re supposed to say something encouraging about each other. Let’s get this over with.”
“What? Who said we have to do that?”
“Hello? Our creator.”
“I did not sign up for some therapy session with you. Dear God, put me out of my misery now.”
“You know something? This isn’t easy for me either, but can you at least try so we can go on our merry way?”
“Fine. You go first.”
“Okay, I think deep down you’re nice, but you get off on being a bitch.”
“Yeah, and how is that a compliment?”
“It’s not, I guess. Damn, this is hard.”
“My turn. You could have a cute figure under those baggy clothes, but I can't tell. And don't get me started on your hair.”
“Wow. We suck at this whole encourage-one-another thing.”
“I got it. That’s what we’re good at—not liking each other.”
“Duh, but I don’t think that was the point of this.”
“Oh well. We tried. Gotta run.”
“See you in school.”
“I can't wait.”
“Should I be worried?”
“Terrified would be more fitting.”
