Six Sentence Sunday - 11/28/10


This week I’m selecting my six from Playing For Keeps, which I submitted to Carina Press. As I wait oh so patiently I thought I’d share the end of the first kiss scene. This scene itself won the New England Romance Writers of America First Kiss contest many moons ago.
Playing For Keeps is about a woman sportswriter and a professional football player. The scene takes place inside a stuck elevator. After playing a couple of rounds of Go Fish (a card game) – one thing leads to another – and they are kissing – and then…

“Ryan, we’re going down.”
“You’re going down?” he asked dazed.
She pounded on his chest. “No, you idiot!”
The realization of what she meant hit him like a bucket of cold Gatorade. He immediately released her and stepped to the far side of the elevator shaking his head. “And we spent the last hour playing Go Fish.”

I giggled. Humor between two people is great because it keeps them real.
