This Sunday, I'm back home and fending off a pack of hysterical hyenas with no swimming pool in sight to distract them from their super-loud gaming... Oh well, life could be worse, innit? Thank goodness for the lovely pick-me-up that is Six Sentence Sunday. To everyone who came over last week, even though I didn't get a chance to return the favour until way later in the week, thank you! Your dropping over here was much, much appreciated. :)
Okay, onwards and upwards. I'm still in the mansion's yard with sexy doctor Jamie and uptight forensic pathologist Margo, with a sulking tween Emma colouring the encounter. Or is she...? Because suddenly, something else, something way hotter and 'disturbing', is brewing between the two adults... Jamie appears to already be a goner for the icy blonde - what about her though?
Margo's never been caught being incompetent, yet this is exactly how she believes Jamie has seen her in her dealings with her headstrong daughter. On one hand, there's Emma who's been throwing daggers with her eyes and countenance since the morning; on the other, there's handsome Jamie who brings out all sorts of uncalled-for feelings inside her. What's a woman to do?
Margo bit her lip and chewed on the soft skin, until she realized what she was doing and stopped - she'd abandoned that nervous tic long ago; at seventeen, to be precise, when Harry Milburn had waltzed into her world and made her yearn to be the kind of girly girl he obviously favoured. Biting lips meant eating the lipstick she'd started to wear, to be noticed by the dashing twenty-three-year old English and drama student at Cambridge.
Not the time to think of Harry.
Especially when Jamie stood just a few feet away.
Turning to him, she raked her gaze over his tall frame. Dressed today in the torn jeans, and a red and black plaid shirt, his big body radiated solidity and quiet strength; gentleness, too. ...'
Don't forget to check out the rest of the SSS posse - surefire stops for me will be Siobhan Muir, Jessica E. Subject, JC Martin, Angela Quarles, Patricia Green, Nicola Marsh, Liia Ann White, Sarah Grimm, Cera duBois, Sherry Gloag... among many others :)
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!
From Mauritius with love,
