8 Sentence Sunday #17

Posted Aug 24 2014, 7:30 am in , , , , ,

Continuing from Her Best Shot, Layla watching the guy from last week win a couple of games and take money from his opponents.

                               The man was a pool hustler.

                               After the second loser left, the man looked around, his gaze landing on her. His eyes, a gray-green, weren’t pretty, but were mesmerizing. Something about the contrast against his olive skin.

                               He pointed his pool cue at her. “Are you going to sit there staring all night, or are you going to play?”

                              “Me? I’m not stupid enough to play pool with a hustler. My day’s been crappy enough. I don’t need to lose anything else.”
