Story Draft for Fiction

I’m currently in a rut when I’m writing my final short story for fiction class.

The current storyline I have for the paper is “hopeless romantic talks with his friend about his past mistakes with a girl” and that’s when it all goes. Now really, I have lots of experience with that same scenario so I might be able to describe it with a little more detail than others. Plus, for the protagonist's love interest or at least

I took the narration style of the novel “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya” except I didn't actually use the same tone of voice. The main character, whose name I haven’t thought of so far, is basically a regular student and his friend is teaching him the basics of infatuation and love and all that in a sarcastic tone similar to that of Chandler Bing from Friends. Yes, my characters borrow traits from sitcoms that I love.

So far, I have 3 pages done and this is just a first draft. Here’s a sample.

And when Ryan finally ticked Jill off, she blocked him from all social media websites they were both in. Plus, she told him something that I could never forget. Now, I’m gonna replace a word that she used a lot with the word “kitten”.
            “You are a kitten idiot. You kitten annoy me with all your talking. I hope you kitten die like the kitten bitch that you are.”
            True story.
Okay, it may not be good but hey, I’m working on it (Plus, that’s basically what happened to me recently. Haha! True story).
