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. While tossing the football at the beach, Heath and his teammate start up a conversation with a couple women after nearly hitting them with a misfired pass. After some friendly teasing, Heath is intrigued by Jordan’s spunky personality and athletic beauty.
She leaned forward and flipped up her shades and claimed him with a pair of wide, honey-brown eyes.
Arousal snaked through his belly, winding tight. “So you’re a local?”
“Born and raised,” she replied. “Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe I hear a southern inflection in your voice, she said with a smile reaching her mesmerizing doe eyes.
A summer fling or more trouble? Heath’s body demanded what his mind cautioned. Then again, there wasn’t anything wrong with dinner. “I’m originally from South Carolina, dahlin.”
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?
