I’m about to hop back into editing The Lone Wolf, so here’s a scene from that novel. The male main character, Andrew, is describing seeing the other MC, Kasey, for the first time.
“I looked at her, just kind of taking her all in. She looked down real quick, like she’d been caught doing something she shouldn’t, and then she looked back at me, just as quick, as if saying, ‘Screw it, I’ll do what I want.’ And I realized at that moment that she was real strong. She had this inner core of steel but she was so easy to bruise before you got there.” My voice caught in my throat. “I didn’t mean to bruise her.”

Good six, developing a strong MC there.
Wow, great 6! You got in great characterization for both in just 6! I especially loved the insight here:
“She had this inner core of steel but she was so easy to bruise before you got there.” My voice caught in my throat. “I didn’t mean to bruise her.”
Aww… that’s sweet and sad, but mostly sweet. You did a very good job of characterizing Andrew there. I’m interested in reading more!
