This is also going to be my first, but not last, blogfest entry using the novel idea chose for blogfests. A little uncertain how this will go since all entries will be first drafts, but guess we'll wait and find out. First, about the blogfest.
The goal of the blogfest is to write about a milestone achieved/celebrated by either fictional or real people. I have gone with fiction. A milestone can be a variety of things. Some may write about goals met, nanowrimo success could be a milestone in this case. Others will have life events like first day of school, weddings, birthdays, or graduations. It all depends on what the writer wants to celebrate.
My Entry: Cinder Story
The main character is Jack. This scene is before he gets the nickname Cinder, before he has even met Ella and her stepsisters. It's the beginning and he has 2 things to celebrate. I just wrote this so errors, viewpoint issues and such should be consumed with a grain of salt. Also, I'd like to do more details, types of drinks, type of cell phone, but for now I'm tired so it can wait. Also, I'm only doing minor edits before posting. So, umm.. Enjoy.
A quick glance at a cell phone caused a curse as Jack opened the door to the Stilton Bar & Grill. He was more than a little fashionably late and would hear about it from his friends. But he didn't care. It was a great day.
"May I help you." The hostess smiled as she picked a menu from her stand and glanced over the seat chart.
Jack waived her off. He could hear his friends already. Seems they started the celebration without him. "I'm good. My party is here already." He made his way to the back bar and his friends.
"Jack! It's about fricking time. What excuse do you have now?" Eathan was the first to speak with Lisa following right after.
"Yeah. Late for your own damn party."
He shrugged and ordered his first drink before settling down in the one open seat available. "Sorry all but I promise I have a good reason."
Lisa pulled a box on the table, taking the lid off to display a green decorated cake. "Okay, birthday boy. Why were you late for this?"
"What kind of cake is it?"
"Chocolate cake with chocolate mousse filling and vanilla creme frosting, just like you wanted." She smiles, lifting the cake a little displaying the grass field decoration.
When the bartender brought Jack his drink, Eathan ordered a round of shots before prodding Jack further on his tardiness. "Yeah. So, what is this great reason for being almost 2 hours late?"
He grinned, taking a sip of his drink before bothering to give an answer. It was his night and he planned to enjoy every minute. And once everyone else knew his second reason to celebrate the party would really kick off. After a long pause, he finally told them. "I had a call back from an interview I did a couple weeks ago and it went longer than expected."
"And?" Eathan tapped on the bar counter. He was never a patient one.
Taking a deep breath, he ended the suspense. "I got the job. Full benefits, great salary and potential to move up in the company. It's what I've been searching for and I got it." With that the shots arrived and everyone took a glass.
Amongst the congratulations and happy birthday cheers, they all raised their shot glasses. It was time to celebrate.
