Six Sentence Sunday - 11/14/10

Trying something new.... There is a blog (http://sixsunday.blogspot.com) where writers participate by putting up 6 sentences of writing on their blogs whether it's from a work in progress or something already published.

Here is mine. It's from my work-in-progress, Love By Design. Victoria's mother (a rich, snooty socialite) has told Russ he nothing but a toy to Victoria - who is standing there as well.

Russ knew the mother was changing tactics by appealing to his male ego and it was working. After all, she was probably right. He meant nothing more to Victoria than the sex toy in her nightstand drawer. But he wouldn’t let them see how much that fact stung. He jabbed his thumbs through the loops of his jeans. Using the thick Aussie drawl Victoria hated he said, “Well, your daughter can play with me anytime she likes.”

Let me know what you think.
