Here are eight more from my work in progress, Play Dates. It’s a contemporary romance about a woman whose little niece helps her snag the man of her dreams. Monica justifies using her niece as hunk bait.
“You’re going to do it, aren’t you?”
She jerked her head up to find Melody giving her the slitty-eyed stare. “What?”
“You’re going to go out with him and you’re going to let that poor man go on believing that my baby is yours.”
The sheer dramatics had Monica rolling her eyes. “Why is it you never added theater to your artsy-fartsy repertoire?”
“Stage fright,” Mel answered without missing beat.
“Listen, I’m just going to have dinner with him. How often does a girl like me have a shot at a hunk like that?”
That’s all I have for now. Be sure to check out all of the Weekend Writing Warrior posts here.
