8 Sentence Sunday #22

Posted Sep 28 2014, 7:30 am in , , , , ,

In this scene, Charlie is playing her favorite video game and her friend has just logged on:

                          It was silly that her heartbeat quickened at the sight of his name, but every time she saw it, it was like she knew she’d be able to see a good friend.

                          Hey, gorgeous, where are you? Not in our cave.

                          She typed back quickly: In a tree about to cause some trouble. Want to join me?

                          On my way.

                          That was one of the many reasons she loved Win. He didn’t ask questions; he just came.
