Omnific Character Smackdown
Character Name: Leo Scott
Personality Type: Brooding and Broken
Seems like Leo Scott has it all: looks, brains, and athletic talent. He’s captain of his high school swim team with a bright future in college and beyond. But Leo has secrets. His mother’s crippling car accident has devastated his family and left Leo to deal with his father’s abuse, battered and alone.
Leo’s girlfriend Audrey Rose is poised for her own share of success. As one of Florida’s top high school swimmers, Audrey dreams of college swimming stardom. But there’s an obstacle to her glorious rise to the top. Her number-one supporter–her father–is in prison for murder.
Part murder mystery, part tale of young love in a military family, this gripping story takes readers on a journey from Pensacola to Annapolis. Leo and Audrey must band together to rise above the adversity they encounter and find their true selves in the process. When everything’s on the line . . . streamline.
Leo stepped up on the block for the anchor leg of the relay. Zoning in on the turbulent wake, he felt his skin tingle. Goose bumps prickled along his spine.
He couldn’t freaking wait to get to that water. Leo felt more alive than ever, his peripheral vision blurring and the sight of Jake swimming toward him coming into sharp relief. Then all he heard was the pounding of his heart. This was his moment.
He rocketed off the block in a perfectly timed start, his limbs a powerhouse of smooth and efficient action. He had his opponent Gary in his sights in the first length and pulled even after the first turn. The thrill of connecting to the water and pushing himself as hard as possible consumed Leo. On the third turn, he pulled ahead of Gary and actu- ally picked up speed on the fourth length, leaving the field behind.
As soon as Leo looked up after the finish, his three teammates raised their arms in victory, jumping up and down. The Pensacola Panthers had won a relay at state for the first time!
Leo hopped out to exchange hugs and high-fives with his teammates. They grabbed their sweats and found their coach to continue the celebration. Leo reveled in watching his normally cool and composed coach shake with excitement, sporting a look of shock. We did that. They’d pleased their coach so much he was dumbstruck.
