Annie and Jace is my newly released book. They had a less than auspicious beginning when Annie was only eighteen. Annie ( with false ID in the name of Clovis Gentry) gets herself into trouble with a man who doesn't want to take no for an answer. The following allotted eight lines are from their first meeting.
“I don’t think the lady wants what you’re offering.”
“Who the hell are you and what business is it of yours,” came the surly reply?
“It doesn’t matter whether it's my business; the lady isn’t interested in what you’re offering. Now go back to whatever rock you climbed out from and leave her alone.”
The guy pulled back his arm and was about to deliver his fist into Jace’s face, when a well-placed kick from ‘Clovis’ ended the confrontation. The big jerk immediately had something else to do with his hands. Doubled over and grabbing his precious jewels, he swore at them as Jace led her away.
Happy Mother's Day to all to whom this applies.
Don't forget to stop by the other bloggers and read their offerings.
