Six Sentence Sunday - 1/23/11


Fun and games are put on hold in Playing For Keeps when Ryan visits a children’s hospital. He doesn’t do it for the publicity but reporter Samantha Jameson finds out and is there to witness it and it’s a scene where she sees another side of him (other than the cocky football player). Anyway now we are in his POV - this happened outside his Humvee in the underground parking garage of the hospital.

As he held the door open for her she touched his face with her delicate hand. Their gazes met and something inside him broke. He pulled her into his arms, held on and tried not to cry. God, she felt so good.
With the smell of sickness and death left behind, Ryan wanted to lose himself in Samantha’s flowery scent…her scent of life. “Thanks, I needed that.”
He really needed so much more for her, but the hug was a good start.

(P.S. - and being a good heroine – Samantha will pull him into the back of that Humvee and give him what he needs)

I'm sure Samantha was very attracted to him after seeing this other side. I know I would be.

That's very sweet. Sometimes a simple hug can mean so much.

Such a sweet scene. Although, it sounds like what's coming next in that humvee is anything but sweet!

Nice to see another side of Ryan. Of course, he needs more than a hug! Poor baby.

Great scene , Liz. I think he should lose the humvee though. Maybe Sam can convince him to buy a hybrid.
