I missed the meme for a few weeks, but so happy to be back today. It's awesome to see the list of participants has grown - Lynn Crain can be proud of herself *wink*
Anyhow, back to the story I'd been featuring on here. Again, let me point out my brand of sexy is more atmospheric and sensual than true body action - so if you're looking for that, sorry... You will however find this at many of the other blogs on the list (link following at the bottom of this post - do check them out!).
So my heroine, Lara, loved Eric when they were teens. 12 years later, with an awful breakup in between & a shattered arranged marriage on Lara's side, they meet again.
The scene I am highlighting follows where their paths cross again. Catch the earlier postings here...
And we follow right from where we left off!
Lara took a deep breath and gathered her courage. She would have to face him sooner or later. A part of her had always known she ran the risk of coming across him on the island. She’d preferred to hide from such probability, but she couldn’t run anymore.
So she lifted her head. A frown marred the wide forehead on the face she encountered. As devastatingly handsome as ever. Or maybe, even more than ever. His features were arresting, masculine, adult. No longer those of a teenager.
Her mouth went dry again, and her heart beat faster when the straight line of his lips broke into a large smile a few seconds later. His eyes lit up as well, and widened.
“I’ll be damned! Lara? Is it really you?” he asked, switching effortlessly to English.
She forced her lips into a smile and took a deep breath. “Hello, Eric. How are you?”
She couldn’t have sounded more like a cold, distant bitch if she’d tried.
He stared at her for long seconds. Would he brush her off, get up, and leave her stranded again? He’d be well within his rights to do so, after her stilted greeting.
The other participants (and there's quite a list to choose from - or visit all! Best of everything, lol) can be found at this week's official list for the MySexySaturday meme. Among them, my faves are Lynn Crain, Krista Ames, Stacy Juba, Sam Cheever, Layna Pimentel, TMonique Stevens, MaryJ. McCoy-Dressen, Taryn Kincaid, Melissa Keir, Jennag Scott, & Louisa Bacio.
Hope ye're all having a lovely Saturday. For once, the sun is shining here in our blustery winter.
From Mauritius with love,
