Weekend Warrior WritersToday is the fourth installment of a Christmas short I’m writing for Weekend Writing Warriors.

A brandy colored gaze burned into Jake as hot as the whiskey searing his belly. The combo nearly stopped his heart. “Sammy.”

  1. Very nice! Did you mean to repeat her ordering a drink and another for him. Made me think this was a flash back followed by present day-ja vu. Left me a bit confused.


  2. Ooh, intriguing. Does anyone other than me always find a surprise reunion supremely awkward? I mean, it’s obvious that he found her less-than-attractive in the past (if all he saw was a tomboy), so how awkward would it be to suddenly TOTALLY have the hots for someone you knew as a kid? That can lead to all sorts of fun dramatic situations.

    Thanks for sharing!
