Just Teasing – Six Sentence Sunday

24 Jun

Another playful moment in  Clear As Day. I had great fun writing the secondary characters in this story and in this scene, Kay watches newbie Margie getting an up close look at a catfish for the first time:

“This one’s just a little baby.” Lloyd patted his “little baby.” The channel catfish weighed eight pounds, easy. “Have to be careful when you go swimming out in the deep water, Margie baby.” His voice dropped to a rolling old-pirate, tall-tale cadence. “They say there’s some out there a couple a hundred pounds, could just slurp a little thing like you right up.”

Channel Catfish

(Luckily for Margie, the average channel catfish runs 2-4 pounds, with a top end size of 40-50 pounds. ;) )

Little Comfort – Six Sentence Sunday

17 Jun

Nate’s attempt to talk things out stirred up their first argument and bad memories for Kay in Clear As Day and she doesn’t know how to handle his ultimatum or his attempt to make up:

His wet hair and beard randomly scattered cool droplets to drip and slip over her warm skin. She shivered from the drips, from frustration, and her traitorous body raised her lips to his. He kissed her again, and she opened her mouth to his. Kissing was safer than talking, but gave little comfort in her turmoil.

Things were changing, had changed. He had changed.

Water Play – Six Sentence Sunday

10 Jun

Another playful moment in  Clear As Day, after a swim turned a little steamy:

“Don’t think about it? Oh, right…Easy.” With a wink, she arched her body against his, drawing another sweet shudder from him. “Nope, won’t think of that or this at all.”
“Damn, babe.” And yeah, good thing for baggy swim trunks, because he’d be thinking plenty, all the way until they were alone again.

Promises Promises – Six Sentence Sunday

3 Jun

I love sharing the snippets of love and laughter from  Clear As Day, but despite all the fun with friends and the summer vacation setting, Nate and Kay are still caught in the fears and uncertainties of their changing relationship:

She wanted to bury her face against his chest and forget the past screaming in her head.
“I promise,” he said quietly, his gaze firm and face solemn. “Never to hurt you.”
Unable to bear the look in his eyes, she shut hers and touched her mouth to his. How could he promise that, even if he meant it? No matter what they promised, people always hurt each other.
