Excerpt from my debut novel Out of the Great Black Nothing, for the April A-Z Challenge.
I will post excerpts from various writings daily.
Billy Ray wadded up the painting tape and threw it basketball-style over the top of the BMW, into the corner trashcan. He turned and walked down the hallway toward the front office. He ran his fingers over the NASCAR hood hanging on the wall, a dented Dale Earnhardt #3 hood of questionable authenticity, and when he rounded the corner he saw Lopez behind the counter.
The woman who owned the BMW was standing on the other side of the counter, and she looked out-of-place, with her nice shirt and tight ponytail. Billy Ray couldn't tell what she was wearing below the waist, and he wasn't sure it mattered. He could stare at the top half of her until his eyes burned out.
LEAVE YOUR MARK! Put an X in the comments, if you have nothing more to say.
