Hey there! Thank to those of you who came by and commented last week. The encouragement is always appreciated. Will post a few more snippets from the same scene. I'm cheating again. It's a bit more than six, but the snippet doesn't feel complete without the last paragraph. This one doesn't quite pick up where the other one left off. I skipped ahead a paragraph.
Also, for those who don't read every week, a bit of backstory: Alex and Angela grew up together. He's three years older and her older brother's best friend. According to Alex, Angela ought to be off limits. He knows about her, through her brother, but hasn't actually seen her in twenty years. So when he runs across her in a nightclub where she works as a stripper, he doesn't recognize her. Until last week's snippet, which is here.
Drawing in a deep breath, she forced herself to look up at him. He deserved that much. “When did you figure it out?”
“When you called me A.J.” Despite the irritation in his voice, desire flared in his eyes, sending her stomach fluttering in response.
Heat crept into her cheeks, warming her face. “I’m sorry. It just…slipped out. It’s been very difficult to remember to call you Alex. I still want to call you A.J.”
thanks again for stopping by! I look forward to seeing everybody's snippets! If you'd like read others or would like to join in, visit the SSS website here.
