8 Sentence Sunday #5

Posted Mar 3 2013, 7:30 am in , , , ,

From A Good Time –After making out next to Indy’s car, they finally arrive at Griffin’s house. They’re in the parking garage and Indy is having second thoughts.

                          He leaned in to kiss her again, but her hand on his chest stopped him.

                         “I don’t do this.”

                         “Okay.” He leaned in again.

                         Again with the slap to his chest.

                         “I’m serious. I don’t want you to think that because we’re screwing means this is how I get clients.”

                         So beautiful and smart, but she thought so little of herself.

    Nice, Shannyn! His opinion made me smile–smart, beautiful, and yet she thought so little of herself. I like him!

  2. Kate Meader says:

    Sounds like he’s pretty smart himself. Great eight, Shannyn!

  3. I do like him, he’ll be a good match for her. Can’t wait to see what happens next – terrific snippet!

  4. Wonderful snippet, Shannyn. The dialogue is so crisp. 🙂

  5. Kate Warren says:

    Glad he doesn’t think that. Very nice.

  6. Love when she says “I don’t do this.”
    And his response is to say “Okay” and try again with zero hesitation.
    “Moving on…back to the kissing…”
    He’s not going to let her hang-ups stop either of them 🙂

  7. Anne Lange says:

    Great dialogue and I like him.

  8. Great visuals…I can totally see it playing out in my mind’s eye.

  9. I’m interested in what he thinks. She’s seems to be sending him mixed signals. On one hand he thinks he can have what he wants, by the other snippets, but this one makes me think she’s playing him. Are they screwing or screwing around as just messing? I guess we will see next week huh? Good snippet.

  10. That was a fun twist! I expected her to say she wanted to stop, but it was just for clarification. You made me LOL!
