Writing 101: Give and Take

“So you’re going to sit there and not speak the entire time?” Ryan now fuming, melting the silence that had thickened.

Pretending to be preoccupied with cleaning the corners of her eyes, Jess answered, “Well you’re not speaking to me.”
Tapping the top of the steering wheel he let out a deep breath. “Fine I’m taking you home.”
Folding her arms in front of her she began to bite at her pinky nail, she looked at the back of her left hand and continued biting without uttering a word.
“You really enjoy torturing me, don’t you?” Ryan yelled.
“Of course not.” Jess now turning her attention to Ryan with sincerity. “You set the tone of the evening before we left, how am I supposed to react?”
“You’re absolutely right.” Ryan stopped the car in front of her building. “Goodnight.”
