8 Sentence Sunday 2

Continuing on in Just a Taste. This takes place days after the funeral. Liam comes to Carmen’s house to return a pan he borrowed. When he arrives, he sees that she’s been working by herself to clear out her dad’s stuff, so he offers to take her out for a break.

                                     “I wasn’t thinking about taking you clubbing, just a quiet bar to talk. I think you look great, but I’ll wait if you want to change.”

                                     “You know it doesn’t say much for your social life if this is how you spend your night off.” Her smile was small, but cocky, the same one she used to toss at him when she sped through the kitchen hoping her mom wouldn’t catch her and put her to work.

                                     “I think I got the better end of the deal here.”

                                     Her smile broadened and she went from a grief-stricken daughter to a beautiful woman.

                                    “Let me grab my jacket.” She ran into another room and reappeared a few minutes later with a jacket on and if he looked closely, it seemed like she might’ve applied some makeup.

  1. Delightful dialogue and I love the description of her transformation

  2. Kate Warren says:

    “If he looked closely” doesn’t seem quite right. This is in his POV, right?

    I like the interaction between the two of them, the hint at the history, and the way he can take her mind off of her loss.

  3. Evelyn Jules says:

    Ooh, it’s always a good sign when a lady goes to a bit of trouble for a guy. A bit of makeup, maybe a splash of perfume too. 😉 Loving this!
