Six Sentence Sunday--Into the Fire

     Her heart one-two punched, and she cursed that he could still make her want him. His gaze fell to her lips, and she held her breath. She hoped he didn’t try to kiss her and prove just how much she wasn’t over him yet.

     She could tell by his intense look he was thinking of doing just that, but before he could lean in and make her a liar, the door opened quickly and a mousy, brown-haired female tech with a headphone wrapped around her head and a wide-eyed, tight-skinned grimace marring her face barged into the room and waved her hand toward herself like her head was on fire. “Mr. Tracy, Ms. Devere, we’re ready for you. We have to move to the studio kitchen, like, five minutes ago.”

I love this! I'm just sad that the tech butted in before he *could* prove her to be a liar. We all know she wants him to really! Great six :)

Thanks, Luxie. That tech butts in one other unappreciated time in the story, but she serves her purpose well.

What an interruption! I think she was both relieved and disappointed that the tech butted in. Good six!

Great six. Someone shoot the little techie person so they can finish the kiss that never got started

I love the characters who have ridiculously good/poor timing. It's like they have a 6th sense or something. Great six!

Cherie Marks said...

Yeah, timing is everything. Thanks for the great comments.
