8 Sentence Sunday #17

Posted May 26 2013, 7:30 am in , , , ,

From A GOOD TIME — Griffin and Indy have been arguing about him bringing a date to her sister’s wedding. Griffin is mad that Indy keeps jumping to conclusions about him, but he explains…

                    “Why didn’t you call me and ask? If you did, you would’ve found out she’s not a real date.”

                     Indy inhaled deeply and closed her eyes.

                     “Remember Lily from the diner when we had lunch?”

                     Her eyes opened wide. “You’re bringing the child waitress to the wedding?”

                     His anger dissipated as he explained. He knew how this looked. If roles had reversed, his reaction would’ve been worse.

    It’s a good thing that he realized the issue. Great snippet. It’s very engaging.

  2. It’s good that he knows he is doing something wrong but I guess he better have a very good explanation about it.

  3. I hope his explanation is a good one!

  4. I’m intrigued what his explanation will be.

  5. Interesting how so many actions are so understood by those we expect to understand. Good #8Sentence.

  6. Kate Warren says:

    I think he just went from bad to worse with the child waitress part.

  7. Well maybe now they’re on their way to a common understanding! This has been very interesting to read each week as it’s developed – another terrific snippet!

  8. Melonie says:

    I think we are seeing some jealousy on Indy’s part – especially as she refers to “the child waitress” – that’s a jibe at him!

  9. Cindy Amrhein says:

    So Indy must be older than the waitress. You’re right Melonie, that is a jab. I’ll have to go back and read why he didn’t just take Indy as his date…
