I thought it might be fun to give it a try.
Here are the rules:
- Find the first usage of the word “look” in your work in progress and paste the surrounding paragraph(s) into your blog.
- Invite as many people as you want to take part in the challenge with you.
Okay, mine’s from my latest New Adult WIP. I’m working on a title (which I asked your help with on THIS post), so for now, it’s just Theo and Sadie—the main characters. I know, it’s lame, but that’s how I roll. LOL.
“Why didn’t you go in and claim her right then? Instead you interrupted my pleasure and now you froze. She was inches from you, yet you said nothing.”
He couldn’t explain it. Her topaz eyes had captivated her. Despite wearing work clothes smudged with grease and smelling of it, she’d rendered him paralyzed with her stare. Over nine centuries of experience tracking demons and returning them to their place in Hades, one look from the tiny female and she’d rendered him useless. Not even a coherent word formed in his muddled brain.
His mate nodded at the girl, then swiped her fingers beneath her eyes. She made haste to a table with a coffee pot in hand. A wide grin filled the old man’s face.
“Refill?” Her voice cracked.
“Yes, dear.” The man eyed Sadie in the most peculiar way.
And then Theo saw why. Sadie leaned forward with the coffee pot poised to fill the cup, and the old man’s hand landed on her behind.
Theo burst out of the booth, snarling. His fangs extended. A roar vibrated through his stomach and out his mouth so violently he feared fire had accompanied it.
Okay, that was fun! So, whoever shall I tag?
