It's been a while since I last posted for SS, and today I'm offering a few lines from my latest wip. Jarrod has just asked Lacey to accompany him to a charity dinner being hosted by the Oscar winning actor Phineas Spencer at the weekend. He finds it hard to understand when she doesn't leap at the chance.
“You’re an enigma.” Jarrod’s muttered comment wiped the smile from her face.
“I’m as straight and uncomplicated as an arrow.”
“I doubt the victim of any arrow considers it an uncomplicated weapon. You’re no weapon, nor are you uncomplicated.”
“If that’s how you feel about me, why are we here?” Was that a whine in her voice? When had she become so needy and whiney?
“Hey! Lady, I never intended any insult. You’re a strong woman, Lacey. I like that about you. But you have layers…”
“Everyone has layers.” Whine became defence and Lacey liked it even less.
‘When your father chucked you out of your home and out of your family.’ The thought almost rocked her off her seat.
