This week I found a snippet of the same scene from last Sunday that I'd like your impressions on. Michael tried to convince Alexia to come to Acapulco with him and the other language students for a weekend. Alexia, a Mexican twenty-something, is an English teacher at the school and not part of Michael's Spanish group. She also has a boyfriend, and Michael is making it hard to be 'just' friends. If you'd like a little more background info you can find it at the Work-In-Progress tab above.
I also cheated a bit. I merged two sentences into one in order to make it six.
“I really, really wish you’d come--I’m going to miss you all weekend.” He reached for my hand, and I let him. We were alone in the lobby, after all. The shock of his touch hadn’t diminished, but the shape of his hand was becoming familiar. My fingers fit between his very comfortably.
“Michael, you only met me two days ago. How can you miss me already?”
