We're once again contributing six sentences from our novel I.O.U. SEX. It's the story of three women who make a pact to track down their old high school steadies to pay them back for the sex they never gave them. Prior to this scene, Kiki has learned that her former boyfriend is now a minister who preaches against homosexuality, and she's appalled by his message. She has discovered he will be speaking at a fundraising event, and she is determined to talk to him face to face. Here's what she encounters.
Kiki stood on tiptoe to see a man with bright pink hair shaking his fists above his head. A conga line snaked behind him, dancing through the crush of protestors. Soon more people joined the mix, pumping their placards up and down to the rhythm, marching behind their leader. Some thumped plastic buckets, drumming their outrage in a staccato beat while others blew whistles or tooted kazoos, creating a cacophony of noise.When a TV van arrived, the crew’s bright lights brought the protestors’ signs into sharp focus—Ban Homophobia, GLBT Power, We’re God’s Children Too. The whole scene reminded Kiki of the 1960s, but those signs had read—Make Love, Not War and Hell No, We Won’t Go.
