Here is a scene from Post-It Bandits. Hope you enjoy.
“Come on Cam, you’re not still worried about Bree and the Brainless Apes, are you?” Jordan rolled her eyes and gave him a look that said: pathetic.
Cam relaxed his shoulders that had been creeping up to his ears and tried to look nonchalant, but his acting skills were pitiful. It didn’t even take her a minute to bust out her nonsense meter and figure out that he was more worried today than he was yesterday. Thinking about something disturbing nonstop could do crazy weird things to a person — it could make them even more paranoid than normal.
“Are you for real? I mean, seriously, who cares about what Bree Meyers thinks anyway?”
Everyone in the world except for you. “I don’t really care — it’s just embarrassing. Is it possible for you to even try to understand? Even if I don’t think it’s that big of a deal, the rest of Jackson Middle School seems to think so — besides you and Bryan. And you don’t really count, Jordan, because number one, you’re my friend and number two, you’re a glitch in the system.”
Bryan chimed in, “Well, I for one am glad that you don’t care what they think. Let’s get real here. You’d never be allowed into their group even if the aliens come down from Planet Zorcon today and declared you their king.” He laughed, complete with a snort at the end.
“You know, the aliens that are about to take over the world.”
Cam and Jordan both rolled their eyes.
Bryan, unaffected by their total disregard, gathered his face together and made googly eyes and kissing noises. “Plus, I’d hate for you to change, because I wuv you just the way you are.” His voice raised a couple octaves – not that it had to go up much because he sounded like a girl half the time as it was.
Cam glared at him. “You look like a monkey pig when you do that. It’s fitting. You should do it more often.”
“What the heck’s a monkey pig? Is that even an actual animal?”
“Yeah. Mr. Baker showed us a slideshow of the weirdest looking animals the other day.”
“Wait. Why am I making small talk? I’m irritated with you. And you.” Cam moved his glare over to Jordan.
Bryan lifted up his nose to look like a demented pig. “It must be because this monkey pig face is irresistible.”
When Cam didn’t laugh or break his stride, Bryan continued, “Whatever. Be angry all you want. Like I care.”
