8 Sentence Sunday #3

Posted Feb 17 2013, 7:30 am in , , , ,

From A Good Time — Griffin is still trying to convince Indy to kiss him, but she’s resisting. He needs a ride home and wants her to leave work early. He points out that the bar is empty and offers to pay her whatever she’d make for the rest of her shift.

                             Anger flashed on her face. “Do you think you can buy whatever you want?”

                             “Pretty much.”

                             “I’m not for sale. Go home, Griffin.”

                             Damn. He hadn’t meant for it to sound like that. “I’m not trying to buy you.”
