Six Sentence Sunday


Today's sentences are from A New Dream which is available at http://www.astraeapress.com In this excerpt, Matt thinks about asking Violet to go with him to his brother's birthday party.

Would she go with him if he asked? Something about the
way she’d touched him when she scraped the cake off his shirt
made him think that maybe she would. Maybe he imagined it, but
once or twice he thought she’d been tracing the outline of his pecs.
Her eyes sparkled, too. Every time she looked at him her
violet blue eyes started to twinkle. When they did, his chest got
tight, and he started to sweat.
