And... another Six Sentence Sunday! This is the last excerpt I share from Chapter 7 of the WIP (Restoring Experience)--next week you'll meet Alexia's boyfriend. I know you're all rooting for Michael here, but poor Dan also deserves a chance :)
Michael just tried to kiss Alexia before leaving for Acapulco, and she's outraged. Now, she's a good Mexican girl who's been in a steady relationship for seven years, but... I can't help thinking she's overreacting a bit. What do you think?
“A kiss is not just a kiss.”
What did he mean, ‘just a kiss’? A kiss is—surrender. Silver-screen romance ends in a kiss, princesses are woken from cursed slumber by a kiss, marriages and other worthy commitments are sealed with a kiss. A kiss is acceptance of everything else to come. It’s the beginning of… well, everything.
Michael is a broad-minded guy and I'm sure he'd have been open to all sorts of reactions... But I don't think he was expecting this one.
If you're getting tired of this story please do let me know--we'll switch to the new WIP, the NaNo novel, see how you like that one.
Thanks for stopping by, everyone, and remember to visit the other SSS participants this week. Great talent there, and some awesome blogs to discover.
Happy Sunday, everyone!
