Game On! is my new short story I’m serving up on Weekend Writing Warriors for #8Sunday.
A semi-pro football player meets a teacher who intrigues him with an offer of a different type of game. This week we pick up after Heath’s teammate has miss fired a pass on the beach to attract two women. After Jordan’s perfect catch, Heath is entranced by her athleticism and beauty. He introduces himself, but hesitates when she asks if he’s on vacation.
Saying he played for the new Triton’s team might be a gamble. “I just started a job with a probationary period and renting a house near here.”
Jordan took note of his right hand before asking, “You wouldn’t rather stay closer to the commercial strip at in Virginia Beach?”
Heath raked his fingers through the sand where he sat. “Naw, got a decent view from the deck and I can come here if I’m feeling social.”
“Are you normally a hermit?” she asked smiling one-sided.
Friendly teasing, he liked her already. Not willing to admit his job was consuming and exhausting, he returned her taunt, “More like picky whom I spend time with.”
Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s 8 for Game On! For more fun check out other Weekend Writing Warriors‘ blogs.
If you enjoyed the previous snippets from White Doe it is 99c at Amazon. Will Cheyenne return and if so, will Shane learn the real reason she left?

Very smooth dialog with just the right amount of description and internal thought. 🙂
Thanks! I’m always wondering if I’m too bare bones.
I’m enjoying their conversation a lot. Can’t wait for more, this is a fun story you’re telling us! Great 8.
Thanks! And that’s my goal, fun. There will be conflict but it’s a basically a beach read.
I love his answer. He’s picky. Lol. Good 8!
I always look forward to your comment! Thanks for stopping by.
Pretty cute scene playing out here…I like him because he’s not touting his Football player status to get the girl : )
Thanks! Later on he’ll be glad he refrained.
