The excerpt I'm posting is from my NaNoWriMo, tentatively called Dr. Blank's Traveling Circus for Talented Misfits. So, without further ado, here we go.
"Hmm," clucked Lily, obviously not impressed. "Papa always says we'll be the death of them. We pull pranks 'a little too often' he says."
Gemma sighed. "And Mama finds us simply ridiculous, and is constantly telling us to 'quit fooling around!' Mama clearly doesn't understand what it's like to grow up in the circus. You spend so much time on trains. Sure, the shows are fun. And training. But while we're moving, we have nothing good to do. Mama said we're not allowed in the training trailer anymore, not while we're moving. I mean, it was only a little break."
"What did you break?" asked Ria, raising one eyebrow at the twins.
"Well, technically it wasn't us who ended up with a broken bone. It was Roy. It was his fault, though. He was spotting us."
"And it was only a little break," pointed out Gemma.
"And what did you break?"
"His nose..." Lily said.
Ria laughed aloud at that. "Only a little break? I see," she said.
"Lily, I've decided I like her. She's like Hugo, only funnier, and not as serious."
"I think so too," Lily said, nodding, and scrutinizing Ria.
"She has better fashion sense than Hugo," said Gemma.
"And she can hear you," Ria said.
I don't think I will ever edit this year's NaNo, at least, not for a while. It was an experiment that, in my opinion, didn't work out. So, while I finished, I didn't really like the end product. However, there were little pieces of it, like this one, that I ended up quite liking. Maybe I'll end up revisiting this story, and reworking it. However, I doubt it.
What do you think of this little piece?
