Sunday Snippet - Feb 9th

 
New month ~ new story.
Today I am sharing another snippet from my short Valentine story,
Queen of Diamonds,
which is part of a fifteen author
Astraea Press Anthology
This week's snippet carries on from last week
 
“Instead of trying to fix me up with all your friends, you should concentrate on clearing up this mess and getting a girl of your own.”
“Aw, Sis, don’t be like that. Culley’s okay.”
“Culley, Culley, what sort of name is that? Are you telling me this guy has the same name as on that TV show?” Sybil struggled to recall the name and gave up. She was too busy expanding her own party planner business and didn’t have time to watch TV.
She’d met the man four months ago, but decided to keep that information to herself. It couldn’t be the same Culley, she’d not heard from him since that meeting, and she admitted now she’d expected to.

She might be more interested than she wants her brother to know.

Sarah W said...

So she and Cully have a (brief) past? And he didn't call?

This is going to be very interesting! :)

I hope it s the same Culley -- he's going to have some 'splaining to do!

Sarah W Thanks for coming by. It was more of a meeting that left lasting impressions and 'that something more...'

SherryGLoag said...

Bless, Jennifer. Just finished reading yours and loved the charm running through your story.

Patty, I was blown away by the diversity of the stories and loved yours too. The sense of family and belonging came over so strongly for me.

:-) And he knows it P.T. and spent the time in between scheming!! Thanks for coming by.

Linda Morris said...

Hmmm, interesting that she was expecting to hear from him, but didn't. Hurt feelings, perhaps?

Elaine Cantrell said...

I have to hurry and get my copy.

Oh please let it be the same Culley. Enjoyed the snippet.

OK, Karen :-) I'll let it be the same Culley! rofl. Yep it's the same guy, and this guy knows what he wants and goes after it.

Gem Sivad said...

It sounds like they have a history she'd like to make more current.

SherryGLoag said...

It was brief, gem, but it existed, and yes she wanted more! Thanks for coming by.
