Weekend Writing Warriors 8 Sentence Sunday #2


I got such a terrific response last week, here’s another eight sentences from Like Fine Wine. Julie is getting settled into her friend’s apartment, but the guy across the hall is more than a little distracting. In this scene, he’s stopped by to see if she needs anything from the market before the snow storm that’s due, and Julie catches herself being…well…distracted…

I leaned against the sofa, arms crossed under my breasts, simply gazing at him. I was frozen there, unable to respond, my mouth as dry as a desert. Was I actually lusting after a guy who’s practically a stranger? And almost young enough to be my son?

Yep. Desire curled in my lower belly, although it had been such a long time, I barely recognized the sensation. Blood rushed to my cheeks and my body warmed as I stared at him standing there in Liam and Carrie’s living room, looking like an MTV beach party host.

Be sure to check out other Weekend Writing Warriors and enjoy their eight sentences!

    Excellent! The visual I got was outstanding, and you tucked in a lot of information without it seeming obtrusive. Nice job!

    “…MTV beach party host.” Love it!

    Wow! As a 38 year old, I totally get that I’m-too-old-to-be-attracted-to-this-person sense. This made me smile, I hope to see more next week!

    AJ, Julie is older than 38, but remember, love is ageless–as is lust, apparently! 😉 Thanks for stopping by!

    Lust is ageless, and based on the visual you gave us, who could blame her? 😉

    It is indeed! Thanks for coming by, Kate!
