She wasn't normal #MidWeekTease #ASMSG #amwriting #NaNoWriMo

Welcome back to Mid Week Tease, hosted by the lovely Sandra Bunino, where we tease you with excerpts from stories we're writing or already have published.

If you were here on Sunday for Sexy Snippets, then you'll know I'm doing NaNoWriMo again this year and Worthy is my chosen title to complete.

So for today's teaser I've gone to the start of the manuscript and chosen an excerpt from the opening paragraphs. This is a first draft and unedited. I hope you enjoy it.



“Hurry up!”
The sound of urgency in her friend’s voice only made Tessa’s hands shake violently as she stuffed clothes and other items into a small back pack.
Anuli, the only person she still had as a friend these days, stood by the door keeping watch and listening out.
Clothes littered the room, bed and floor. Usually Tessa would never allow her personal space to be in such disarray but she didn’t have the time to tidy up right now. It was more important that she packed up and got out of this house as soon as possible.
Her gaze swept over the walls and furniture quickly as she tried to make sure she’d taken the things that were really important to her. She had many beautiful things, clothes, gifts, ornaments, more than a normal girl of fourteen would own in a country like Nigeria.
But she wasn’t normal.
