After posting this on Facebook today, I had to chastise myself. How dare I neglect my loyal blog followers. Right? So here you are…and just for you I’ve added a few extra lines 🙂 As I’ve been rather tight-lipped about the first book in the Morrow family series, I thought I’d share a little of the journey from the second book.
Morrow’s Choice (Opening scene. Rough draft.)
“But you like guys.”
Strawberry blonde hair flitted between her fingers. Silk she’d fantasized wrapping around her hands for months now. And timid little Bel didn’t back away either, even when she leaned in to whisper, “I like girls, too.”
“Since when, Sage?”
Air fanned her cheek at Bel’s ragged exhale. Am I getting to you, buttercup? “Since as long as I can remember.” She tugged on a few strands until their lips were mere inches apart. Hair flowed over her hand at the vigorous shake of Bel’s head. “Deny it all you want. Doesn’t stop it from being true.”
“But how did I not know?”
“You’re Sara’s friend. Yes, you’re an honorary member of our family, but you’re Sara’s friend first.”
“Ever kissed a girl?” A pink tongue flicked out to lick perfect lips.
“Not yet.” She bit down on her inner cheek to stop from sucking that tongue into her own mouth. Too much too soon would surely scare Bel away. She hadn’t intended for this to happen, hadn’t known her sister’s friend would stop by while the rest of the family was on vacation. Two days ago she’d started cursing her cunt boss for making her work during approved time off, and hadn’t stopped until a few minutes ago when she’d walked into her own backyard and found Bel sunbathing topless by the pool. A hastily thrown on shirt would never erase the image now seared into her memory. Pert breasts. Nipples puckered and waiting.
So, what do you think? Curious about Sage’s story now?
