My apologies to everyone for last week’s SNAFU. Things got away from me and the next thing I knew it was Sunday–and I hadn’t posted! Anyhoo …
This week’s six is again from Side Effects (which should be releasing later this month). In the last snippet Damien reacted poorly to Max’s seemingly less than excited response to Damien’s news. Now Max is on the hot seat:
I leaned across the table and grabbed his arm, ignoring the tingle along my nerves. “You’re not stupid–you just … surprised me–that’s all!” I smiled what I hoped was a charming smile.
Damien sat forward, his hand landing on mine and sending more tingles to race up my arm. “Then you’re not offended?”
I was anything but offended; the electric jangles were making my pulse race and my vision swim.
Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to read more from the Sixers here.
‘Til next time!
Grand. Communication is key. 🙂 I’m glad they are being honest with each other.
Well … for the moment. Thanks for stopping by, Elin!
I read today’s and the other two Sixes. Very, very nice. Loved the whole scene and the way you’ve described it (so far!).
Virginia, thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I’m glad you enjoyed the snippets.
Went back to get caught up on “the news.” I wish that didn’t have to be a bomb in our society, but you conveyed that delicate moment and all its anxieties well. This week’s snippet is just as good! Love the vulnerability. On both sides. Excellent.
JM, thanks so much for leaving a comment!
This is just the first of a few bombshells for these guys …
