8-Sentence Sunday

weekend_writing_warriorsveteransbadge_4We’re back with a snippet from The Summer of Second Chances and I’m staying in the scene in Sophie’s kitchen for today. You didn’t really think I’d leave you hanging on their first kiss, did you? I’m mean, but I’m not that mean! Remember last week, Ben didn’t think kissing her was a good idea, but here they are after sharing a meal and wine. Sophie’s practically announced that she’s attracted to him, he’s very attracted to her, the kitchen is steamy… He’s dying to kiss her, but he’s still overthinking it…

Don’t do it—turn around and go back to your own cottage.

He stared into her green eyes. When he put his hands on her waist, there was no turning back. Neither of them said a word. She put her wet hands on his chest. He dipped his head down and found her lips. Then he was kissing her and she was kissing him back. He pulled her closer, until their bodies touched…

Yeah, he did it… but how far will it go?

I hope you continue to be intrigued by Sophie and Ben. Stay tuned for more from The Summer of Second Chances. Comments are welcome and encouraged. Please don’t miss the other Weekend Writing Warriors.  Head on over and check out the work of dozens of other writers. You’ll be so glad you did.
