I’m counting the days until The Pinch of the Game appears on Dreamspinner’s Coming Soon page, and that’s got me thinking about things like how the story began and how it will be received. I can’t affect the latter, so i’m dwelling on the former. This snippet is part of the original flash piece. The first line is Jeffrey’s.
“Maybe this wasn’t such a great idea. Don’t you usually bring an army to storm a castle?”
“You can’t run away screaming like a little girl.”
“But I am a little girl.” I crossed my arms over my flat girl-chest and blew my bangs out of my eyes.
“On the outside.”
Before I could say another word, he grabbed me in a bear hug and dove behind a couple of big rocks. Michael exited the roll on his feet, gun in hand. That’s my man.
“Don’t look at me like that when you’re… like that. It’s wrong on so many levels.”
Here’s a little extra, since i’m not giving any intro to the snippet. This is part of the dedication for The Pinch of the Game.
To Siobhan Muir, the brilliant mind and sharp eyes behind Thursday Threads and Teddy Bear Thursdays. This story would never have been written without you.
Thank you, Siobhan, for your friendship and support. I love the way you do Thursdays. *hugs*
Thanks for reading!
Have fun visiting the other snippets at the Snippet Sunday FB group.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, lovelies!
