“Has she been under your feet all day?” she asked sitting at the bar.

The devoted look of love she gave Sky made his heart ache. She’d have to give up the dog  and he knew that hurt. Sky had climbed up on the sofa and napped with him after lunch. Normally he didn’t stop but to eat, but she relaxed him and he hadn’t slept that well the last couple of nights. “She’s sweet and it’s like she knows how much I miss my dog.”

“Did he or she pass away?” she asked with kind eyes.

“He was my K9 in the army.” He turned back to the pot, before continuing, “During the attack on our base, I went down and another handler took him to safety. The bird flew me out before I could say goodbye…

Today on Weekend Writing Warriors #8Sunday, I’m sharing ten sentences from my untitled contemporary romance. While hibernating the winter in a beach house Josh is being paid to remodel, the former K9 handler is befriended by a service puppy in training and her owner.

Josh has finished his work on the house for the day while playing sitter for the pup, Sky, who is sacked out in front of the fire place. He’s put a pork loin in the oven, reasoning he’d like to have cooked meal after having been in court most of the day and hopes Tori will accept his invitation. He’s just opened the door after hearing coming up the deck stairs.

She knelt in her heels and scooped Sky into a hug. “I’ve got to stop doing this.”

The worry returned to her face before she said, “I know…it’s just that…never mind.”

“A court date warrants a beer, or something stronger?” He motioned to the bar hoping to get the full story as he appreciated her curves filling out her business skirt.

“A beer would be nice…you’re cooking?” she asked sniffing as she cast a glance across the bar to the kitchen area.

“Yeah, and I can do laundry too.” He rolled his eyes, cranked off the top of a long neck he’d pulled from the fridge and handed it to her.

Her tongue traced along her full lips before taking a swig, sending his mind back into the gutter.
