8 Sentence Sunday #34

Posted at Dec 21, 2014 7:30 am in , , , ,

From Just a Taste, Colin is at home for the monthly O’Leary family dinner before going to Gus’s wake. He’s talking to his big brother Colin (who got his story in Something to Prove). Liam starts the conversation:

                             “Did you already buy the ring?”

                            “What are you talking about?”

                             “You go ahead and play it cool around Moira because we know she’ll flap her jaws to everyone, but I saw your face change when she suggested marriage.”

                              Colin leaned closer. “Is it that obvious?”

                             “Probably not to everyone. But you don’t get nervous and that’s what I saw.”

                             “The damn thing has been burning a hole in my pocket for a couple of weeks now. I can’t figure out when to ask.”
