Where Love blossoms…

December consoles her friend…Weekend WritingWarrior…#8sunday…10/5/2014


Hey All! I’m back again doing the #8sunday with the wonderful  Weekend Writing Warriors!  I really loved reading the other snippets! This week’s excerpt from my debut novella The Trouble with Playing Cupid shows the scene where December consoles her friend and stylist,Terrence on his very recent heartbreak.

“Sugar pie, you can’t lay there all night. You can sulk just as good on the bed.” Terrence turned his face to the side and stared at December with the saddest brown eyes she’d ever seen.

“It’s more pathetic this way, so just kill me now because I can never face him again.”

“He didn’t seem to mind too much, I think he’s known for some time.”

“That’s what makes it worse.” he opined, turning his head away from her so she couldn’t see his tears. Tossing his jacket on the chair a few feet from her, she laid down next to him on the carpeted hotel floor and cuddled him close.
