#sixsunday Before The Morning #18: Oops!

Hey beautiful people!

Recovering from a bad cold here, and today I have no voice. Needless to tell you, the hyenas are ecstatic! All I wanna do is head back to my bed and quilt, but since I already signed up for Six Sentence Sunday, I owed it to the list owner to pop in here and post my six.

Anyhow, I'm jumping a little in the story this week. Same scene, but I'm skipping the part where Ash and Rayne are doing the naughty (I know, wicked of me, but, read today's six and you'll know why I rushed to this excerpt).

So, yes - remember? When the story opens, Ash goes all knight in shining armour on Irina, a Russian woman whose husband beat her right in front of Ash's eyes. He did recall how Irina made him think of Rayne, his childhood best friend whom he hasn't seen in 17 years... but Ash has no idea "Irina" was actually Rayne on an undercover mission for the Corpus, the clandestine espionage and assassination agency she works for...

This is where this reunion (last week!) and love scene ends, a cliffie to lead to the next chapter. Throughout the love scene, no word has been exchanged, and during post-coital bliss, Rayne has piped up that if she knew coming back would be like this, she'd have returned a long time ago. The words, and the accent, have startled Ash...

Would love to hear your thoughts!


'...
"I took you by surprise, didn't I?"
What could he tell her, and how could he explain?
"Yeah," he said with caution, "You could say that."
She smiled, a tremulous, guarded curve of her mouth, and said, "I'm so happy to see you again."
"Me, too," he reassured barely above a croak.
As she reached out and hugged him, Ash wanted to kick himself and run away as far as possible—he'd fucked up, because the woman in his arms was Rayne, not Irina.
...'


Surprise, surprise, innit? Poor Ash - he's in a pickle! And master-manipulator Rayne aka Kali is not about to let him off the hook.

Don't forget to check the official SSS list, and the following peeps - Jessica Subject, Cara Bristol, Carmen deSousa, Alexa Bourne, Tory Michaels, Christine Warner, Monica Enderle Pierce, Taryn Kincaid, Sue Ann Bowling, Kate Warren, & Samantha Paige.

Hope you're having a lovely weekend!

From Mauritius with love,

Zee

Oops. That's the kind of mistake he'll never recover from. Awesome job, Zee!

Jessica Subject said...

Yes, that is quite the shocker, and now he must fix the issue. Love this story! Hope you get your voice back soon. :)

Krystal Shannan said...

Somebody's in trouble!

kerriannecoombes said...

Uhm? HUH? STOP! How did that happen? Fab six! got me hooked!

Dee Carney said...

It'll be fun seeing him back away slowly. Nice six!

Zee Monodee said...

Lol, Jess! It's the start of his downfall! :) xoxo

Zee Monodee said...

Jessica, I remember when you read that part for the first time - quite the shocker, indeed! :) Still no progress on the voice, but there's hope. XOXO

Zee Monodee said...

Lol, Krystal! Trouble is good... at least for the characters where the writer is concerned :) xoxo

Zee Monodee said...

Awesome, Kerrianne! Glad you're hooked :) xoxo

Zee Monodee said...

Oh yes, Dee - he'll try backing away, but that's without taking Rayne in consideration here. The girl's tenacious, if anything else. :) xoxo

Elin Gregory said...

Not quite the reaction she's been hoping for I bet. :)

Monica Enderle Pierce said...

Ruh-roh. Things are taking a 180, and we all know it's gonna get bad before it gets good again. I feel sorry for these characters already.

Sue Ann Bowling said...

Sounds like he doesn't realize what's going on yet, but she does.

Taryn Kincaid said...

So mysterioso! (As long as he doesn't call out the wrong name!)

And thanks for the shout out!

Sara Walter Ellwood / Cera duBois said...

Sounds like trouble... great six...

Zee Monodee said...

Lol, Elin. Poor Rayne, innit? :) xoxo

Zee Monodee said...

Awww, Monica. True, it gets worse before it can get well... :) xoxo

Zee Monodee said...

Sue, he's in a pickle all right! :) xoxo

Zee Monodee said...

Lol, Taryn. That would be a hige problem indeed! :) And you're most welcome for the mention. Xoxo

Zee Monodee said...

Lol, Sara! Indeed. It's the start of Ash's "problems" :) xoxo

The little minx has got this man all confused!

Samantha Paige said...

I want more! The poor guy had no idea what he was getting into. (Sorry I'm running late for SSS.)

Zee Monodee said...

Lol, Gemma! Poor Ash :) xoxo

Zee Monodee said...

No worries, Samantha - love it that you could drop by. :) And yes, poor Ash; he has absolutely no clue. xoxo
