Welcome to another Six Sentence Sunday! I almost forgot to sign up this week! I couldn't decide what to post, so I had to take time to think about it and plum forgot.
I ended up deciding on something from the new WIP I started. The working title for this one is Blind Date. I know, original, right? Guess what the premise is! ;) It's the sequel to my soon-to-be-released book, The Playboy's Baby. I was going to post the opening, then I remembered my furry secondary character. This guy introduced himself almost immediately. He was one of the first characters that came to me. His name is Bruce. Well, okay, he originally came with a different name. But I had to change it, because I realized I'd used the name in a previous book.
Anyhoo, he introduced himself to me by showing me this. I had to clamor to get it all down. I'm still not sure if it properly conveys the tension of the moment.
Heart pounding, Elizabeth Anderson took off at a dead run. Some fifty feet in front of her, her golden retriever, Bruce, flew toward the river’s edge. Body hunkered to the ground, his ears flopped in the breeze. He raced up the boat dock and leapt off, paddling after a little girl who’d just fallen off the edge. She’d disappeared from view beyond the edge of the dock, but her terrified cries rent the air. All around her, people stopped what they were doing and turned to stare.
The little girl, is of course, the hero's daughter. I haven't decided if the hero and heroine should meet this way...or if I should start the book with the blind date they've been fixed up on. Either way, I'm determined this scene has to end up in the book somewhere.
Thanks for stopping by to read! Don't forget to see all the other fabulous snippets at the SSS website! You know, when this is gone, I'm really going to miss reading everybody sixes!
