Hump Day Hook

Welcome to Hump Day Hook where a group of writers get together and post excerpts from their work. My excerpt comes from a book I'm getting ready to submit. The title is Rest Thy Head. In this excerpt, my heroine goes to visit her fiancé unannounced. When you finish here, go to to find other participants.

As she rounded the corner into the kitchen, she got the biggest surprise of her entire life.  Megan Thomas, whom Drew used to date, was with him in the kitchen, and the two of them were hugging each other so tightly it was a wonder either of them could breathe. 

Peyton gasped, and when Drew saw her he shoved Megan away and caused her to fall against the stove.  “Peyton, I can explain!”

Peyton felt hot blood flood her face.  “What’s to explain, Drew?  I’m not an idiot.  You don’t have to say a thing.”

She spun on her heel and ran from the kitchen with Drew right behind her.  “Peyton, wait.”  He grabbed her arm and spun her around.

“I believed in you!  I believed in you!”  She jerked her arm from Drew’s grip and ran for her car.

He was just hugging her. Peyton could have waited for the explanation

You'd think so.

Caught in the action! She is brave to just ran away and slap everything like that to his face.
