Six Sentence Sunday - 5/22/11




Another one from Love By Design. Co-host Russ has just arrived on set of Design Intervention startling Victoria and she spills coffee on her shirt. (FYI - in the past he'd been late to meetings)


The morning sun bounced off his tousled hair, picking up every highlight. His thumbs were hooked into the belt loops of his tight jeans, a grey t-shirt clung to his chest and didn't even try to pretend he wasn't staring at her breasts.
She shifted her gaze down. The cream silk was soaked through like a spring break wet t-shirt contest.
His stance stayed perfectly relaxed like he practiced it in front of a mirror, but his stare lethal as his gaze met hers. She knew she was supposed to say something and blurted the first thing that came to her mind. “You’re early.”
“I would say I arrived just in time.”

I'm thinking he may have to help her clean her shirt of maybe just take it off. She seems too distracted to do it herself. ;) Nice six!
