8 Sentence Sunday #16

Posted Aug 17 2014, 7:30 am in , , , , ,

More from Her Best Shot. Layla’s car has just broken down in Atlanta, and she’s stopping to drown her sorrows at a bar:

                     In the back, she found a few men playing pool at the two tables. 

                     Within moments, one player easily stood out as the man to beat. He was tall, over six feet, with long dark hair pulled back into a ponytail. He wore a T-shirt that looked intentionally too tight, showing off defined muscles, as if to say, “Don’t fuck with me.” He didn’t chat with the other player. The only sounds he made were to call his shots. He was smooth and efficient, and fun to watch as he cleared the table.

                       Especially when he bent over in front of her.

    I love that he bends over right in front of her. That’s a classic move. Now she can admire his backside as he pockets the next shot. 😀 Great job!

    I certainly can see this man stud. Love the T-shirt description.

    Never thought of pool as a spectator sport until your last line. LOL I’d watch that! Nice snippet.

  5. Somehow I don’t think she’s looking at his tight t-shrt when he bends over.

  6. Oh yes, I’m there with her – excellent excerpt, loved the details re the “stud”.
