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). Having convinced Alma to go to dinner with him, Noah is now at her beck and call, as she has to run a few errands first. They stop at a boutique where Noah stands around awkwardly waiting on Alma. He is unsure of what to do, when his phone rings.
Grateful for the reprieve, he didn’t even care that it was Cass again.
“’Where are you?’” she asked, her voice low.
“It’s a long story,” he replied in an equally low tone.
“’Well, did you find her?’”
“Yeah…,” he began and instinctively turned towards Alma.
“’So, what’s her name?’”
Noah’s mouth opened, but no words came out, not even sounds, for Alma had kicked off her shoes and was unbuttoning her shorts. He should have walked away then and there, for decency’s sake, but he couldn’t—he knew what was coming next and no matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t pull away from the sight in front of him.
