It's time for another WeWriWa!

This post is part of an ongoing blog hop hosted by Weekend Writing Warriors. Every Sunday, participating authors post eight sentences from a published work or even a WIP (work in progress). Then we hop to our fellow warriors’ blogs and check out all the fabulous fiction that’s happening! It's a great way to meet readers, writers, and your next favorite book!  :)

For January, we are going to explore The Mechanic. This is Linda's story in the Loving Her series.Linda. Her name means beautiful. Linda's life, though, is anything but beautiful. Independent, head strong and perhaps even a bit vindictive, Linda is both tough and vulnerable. Linda survives the unthinkable from both family and strangers alike. Linda is not one to be kept down. As long as she stays true to herself, she knows that her life will one day, indeed, be beautiful. Linda's incredibly powerful story is the third book in the Loving Her series.

Mike folded in at his waist and began shuffling backwards. Linda was slapping his arms as hard and as quickly as she could. After a few steps, she stopped; she pushed her knee up right into his groin. 
Mike doubled over in pain. He dropped to his knees, his back against the cafeteria wall.

A small crowd of kids circled around them, watching the school’s biggest bully get beat up by a girl.

Linda punched him repeatedly in the arms and stomach. As she heard the crowd grow and become more rowdy, she punched him once in his right eye, turned and walked away.

Hope you liked it! Happy reading!

A school yard fight, it sounds brutal. Curious how old they were when this happened.

Oh, the bully has it coming and she's giving it to him good. :-)
Good 8, Lauren!
