Game On! is a short story I’m serving up on Weekend Writing Warriors for #8Sunday. Heath is a semi-pro football player in town for the season. He meets Jordan, a teacher with obvious trust issues, who proposes a sexual game. In this week’s snippet, they’ve returned from dinner and are walking along the moonlit beach. Jordan shares the details of her nearly career killing affair that left her an untrusting soul. “I care what you think of me, Heath.”
So for the record, I made the mistake of giving my trust to a man who hid his marital status. Looking back, there were clues, but I lived here while he was in Richmond. As soon as I found out, broke all contact, but his wife, a shareholder in his business, decided to make me the example of her husband’s many indiscretions.”
Taking her hands, he sighed in sympathy. In the dim light she seemed small and fragile, but he knew otherwise. She’d endured, and overcome, but sadly she would remain overly cautious of people coming into her life. “Nothing changes my opinion of the woman I met on the beach last Friday. But I am sorry for what you’ve gone through.”
She sank into his arms, resting her cheek against the center of his chest.
Hope you enjoyed this week’s eight and will check out other Weekend Writing Warriors‘ blogs.
