I almost didn’t post today, since I’m still sick. Blah. But, I probably won’t post next Wednesday, and I didn’t want to miss two weeks.
This is another Excerpt from Second Chances. Still slugging through the final edit. I’m about halfway done. If done is even a word in a writer’s dictionary…
Scene set up: This is after Jay meets Lacey a second time while attending a game night at a friend’s house. He’s driving home in his roommate, Matt’s, truck. Today I have 16 sentences.
“What?” he snapped, whipping his head around at the sound of his full name.
“What were you two doing in the backyard?”
“Nothing. Don’t call me that. And why are you asking?”
“Nothing?” He threw him a sidelong glance. “I saw the way you looked at her from the moment we arrived.”
“Nothing happened, okay?” He glared at Matt as they turned left onto the main street.
“It’s dangerous being alone with her—with any woman for that matter.”
Jay frowned and snorted, stuffing his hands in his pockets. He was tired of lectures and didn’t need anyone telling him what to do. Didn’t we already have this conversation when I first moved in?
“The last thing you need is a girl to complicate things right now.”
