8 Sentence Sunday #19

Posted Sep 7 2014, 7:30 am in , , , , ,

Jumping a little ahead (a few lines) in Her Best Shot. Layla has bought the guy a beer and introduced herself to find that his name is Phin. They’re starting their first game of pool, where Phin will give her a lesson:

                            He leaned forward, and the roped muscles of his forearms flexed as he made his shot. He sank a solid-colored ball, but because she was too busy watching him and not the table, she didn’t see which one.

                            “Do you know the rules?”

                             She nodded. “You sank a solid, so I have stripes. Call what pocket I’m aiming for and get the balls in. Don’t sink the eight until the end.”

                             “First rule, watch the table.”

  1. Oh, I do like this eight. She kept track of almost everything.

    That sort of easy competence is so attractive. Love the name Phin!

  3. Maybe this will help me figure out the rules!

  4. I don’t know, this guy seems pretty darn distracting to me! Good luck to her…enjoyed the snippet. I can really picture him.

    Nice that he knew she wasn’t watching the game 🙂
