WIP Wednesday: Pride and Purity Teaser

Yeah, we're still choosing to ignore the subtle differences between WIP Wednesday and Teaser Tuesday to suit our blogging schedule. Anyways, without further ado, here's a little snippet or as P-Clo would say, a WIPpet, of our WIP (work-in-progress), Pride and Purity.

***************************************************************************

“That bitch!” I couldn’t help but swear under my breath as I watched Bingley on stage with Captain Hotness. I felt my eyes narrow with annoyance and quickly wiped my face clean of any expression.

Rule #1 of being the older, less talented sister of America’s reigning teen queen: Never, ever let yourself look annoyed with said sister in public. Everyone will just assume you’re jealous. Correction, everyone already assumes you’re jealous, and surly expressions only confirm their suspicions. Unless you want to see your life laid out in a 3-page spread in US Weekly dramatically rehashing your dashed dreams of superstardom and your rumored estrangement from your fabulous sister, it’s best to smile. Trust me.

The truth is, I wasn’t jealous of Bingley as she sang in front of a packed stadium with Captain Hotness drooling all over her. I mean, let’s face it, I didn’t have the goods to fill out that pink, sequined halter top and I couldn't hold a note to save my life. No, I was annoyed because on the other side of the stage I saw publicist extraordinaire, Bobbi Reese, lapping up this little scene like a dehydrated dog. And there’s nothing I hated more than seeing Bobbi hydrated…er...happy.

I love her already! So...which one of you is the jealous one and which one is the bitch in the pink halter???

Jeannie Lin said...

Hee hee! Love it!

Hmmm, but begs the question. Sister angst -- semi-autobiographical?

Lisa and Laura said...

Hee! Glad you guys like what you've read so far. I'm the jealous bitch (it totally suits me) and Laura gets to be the hottie in the halter top.

And you KNOW some of this is going to be autobiographical. Unfortunately we're going to have to dig deep. We haven't had a good old fashioned girl fight since high school...

Don't call this a comeback

So it’s been a minute. Or 10. Or truthfully more like 2,102,400. At least we think that’s how many minutes there are in 3 years, but let...
