SSS-FB 10-02-13

This week I am continuing from where I left off last week in my Valentine Rom Com, The Wrong Target which is avaialable at Amazon, UK kobo
My hero, Ryan Thomas, is confronted by his rebellious daughter Sheila who's been excluded from her high-class school for bringing a dangerous weapn to school by my heroine, Tina Blackberry.  We know from last week Sheila is not a happy camper...

Her words collided with his heart. Would she turn out like her mother, always wanting things her way? It sounded like his little girl almost hated him. Did she expect him to throw his weight around and demand her reinstatement in school?

Words, he mused, carried the weight of expectations. They had equal power to create great joy and intense sadness.

Oh, I so can feel "Her words collided with his heart." Really liked this, so I backed up to the previous post. His emotion coupled with the setting (he's obviously rich) tell us so much. Very, very nice!
