A Very Short Preview from "The Night Life."

I love working on The Night Life, because there are so many different characters with so many different lives. There is, however, a lot of dialogue - possibly too much, I'm not sure. Anyways, while in the shower a few nights ago, I got this brilliant idea for a short add-in about the main character, Richard, and I thought it tied into the story very nicely. Though, this isn't what this preview is. Actually, the following few lines are a conversation about Jane, who at this point in the story is known to most of the dancers (strippers) as Richard's girlfriend. Basically, here's two dancers gossiping about Richard and his "sickly" "girlfriend", Jane:

            “She’s so pale,” Dani droned during a particularly dull moment. “And gosh, those bones – is she anorexic?”
            “Gosh, probably,” Mary stepped in. “I knew a girl from high school who was anorexic, and even she wasn’t that thin!”
            “I bet Richard encourages her to starve herself, too!” Dani gossiped.
            “And what is she, in high school? That girl doesn’t look a day over seventeen.”
            “Seventeen? She barely looks old enough to menstruate!”

Also: if you liked this, don't forget to check out "The Night Life: Chapter One" from Amazon. (No seriously, though, if you really want to see it, just leave a comment or send me an email, and i'll just forward you the pdf or epub file or something).
