Six Sunday #5: There's mean girls and then there's strange girls

For this week's Six Sentence Sunday, I return to my YA urban fantasy WIP, Osland.

After ducking out of a school dance with her date, protagonist Gail Dorjee stumbles upon some bullies from the school's main clique roughing up her friend, Leandra. She decides enough is enough and steps in to deal with them with a little threat, but realizes something a lot more than a little bullying is going on:

“You’re going to leave her alone right now, or I swear I’ll knock you around so hard that by the time you wake up disco will be back in style.”

The two girls looked at each other and grinned. They turned and took several steps toward me. In unison, with a monotone voice, they said, “You don’t belong here, Miss Dorjee.” They pointed to Leandra. “She doesn’t either, but I need one of you."
