Game on! is my new short story I’m serving up on Weekend Writers Warriors #8Sunday. Please see the link below and check out many talented authors’ snippets.
After hanging up on Sandy, Heath decides the Virginia Beach oceanfront is to intrusive. He texts his teammate and roommate, Dugan, of his change in plans. Arriving a his beach rental, he he finds his buddy on the driveway under the house waxing his Fatboy Harley-Davidson. Knowing Heath pretty well, Dugan has just asked if he’d gotten another call from his crazy ex.
He leveled a sunglass shaded gaze at his friend.
“You’re better off without her, man. She was just dragging you down,” he said buffing the red metallic gas tank to a high sheen. “
Think she’s figured out her new dog isn’t as easy to train as the old one. Must be having second thoughts.” He’d been her stupid mutt for a few of months.
“Hope you’re not going to roll over if she decides to head south,” Dugan said with gritty determination.
“Those days are done, bro.”

Definitely sounds like two guys talking, very realistic. I liked the “sunglass shaded gaze” – good turn of phrase! Great 8!
She sounded like a nasty piece of work. I hope he means it when he says those days are gone.
Yep, he’s moving on to better things.
Clever exchange between the two. I can feel their friendship and love their wit. Hope he’s right about those days being done. No one needs that treatment.
Oh, your snippet made me want to go to the beach. Waxing his bike under the house… 🙂
Realistic conversation. There’s an easiness between these guys that only close friends have, and it comes across. Nicely done, Dani!
Thanks Teresa! I worked for a company for a long time where I was surrounded by men. I speak guy! 😉
A very real scene! 🙂
