8 Sentence Sunday #30

Posted Oct 13 2013, 7:30 am in , , , ,

From Something to Prove, Elizabeth is leaving O’Learys…

                  Too tired to think, she opted to leave. Part of her wanted to talk to some of the patrons, get their perspective as to why they came here, but it would have to wait.

                  As she wound her way back toward the front, raucous laughter exploded at the bar. The sexy bartender was enjoying something.

                  He caught her eye as she passed. His laughter made his eyes twinkle with mischief, his smile lighting his face, like he had the best life in the world. She wondered what it would be like to feel that even for a night. It wasn’t that she was unhappy; she liked her life very much, in fact, but it had been too long since she’d experienced a laugh that shook her whole body.

    Love the eights this week. Just enough description to give us another clue into her internal landscape. Well done, Shannyn.

  3. I’m enjoying this story very much and I agree with the other commenters – you give us terrific insight into your heroine’s mood at present. Which I hope the sexy bartender can change for the better LOL! Great snippet!
