Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors, where participants share excerpts of their books or works-in-progress. It’s a fun way to sample new books and find new authors! Be sure to check out their website. Today’s selection comes from my book, Stay With Me (the full synopsis is below). Noah finally finds Alma, the mystery woman, but she isn’t as happy to see him and remains reserved when he asks her about the kiss.
He looked at her pleadingly, but Alma offered nothing. She couldn’t: this wasn’t supposed to happen—just a kiss and that’s it. So what if he was right about them? There could be nothing else.
“Will you go to dinner with me, at least? We don’t have to do anything more if you don’t want to,” he begged.
Dropping the feigned interest in her manicure, she sat up and leaned into the console, towards him: “I’m bad news,” she whispered, “You’ll regret the day you met me.”
Noah shook his head and said, “Never.”
