Six Sentence Sunday

In this excerpt my hero's old girlfriend decides it's time to move back home.  A New Dream is available at either Amazon or Barnes and Noble


She heard the child cry out and hurried to comfort him. As she patted his back, he burped and drifted back to sleep.  “How would you like to meet Matt?” she whispered.

Yes, that was a good idea. New York hadn’t worked out exactly like she had hoped; she had been torn about what to do.  Seeing Matt’s picture had clarified her half‑formed resolve.

Nothing like someone to pat your back and help you burp. Who was the "he" who did the back patting? Matt? Can't wait to read more.

No guy there. I made a typo. This scene is crucial because the character doing the patting is going to upset Matt's life in ways he can't imagine.

She sounds like she has an ulterior motive. Interesting!

Ute Carbone said...

Makes me want to meet Matt. I've got a feeling he's going to be in for a shock!

Ulterior motives abound!

Fascinating scene, I can detect the ulterior motives without knowing what they are.
