For this weeks SSS, I'm going to continue with the current novel I'm working on titled Painted Memories. I'm picking up right where I left off last week. So if you haven't read it, please do HERE.
Here's the setup: Lilly has just fell into a pond after tripping... where she proceeded to act like a fool. A side note: Lilly is terrified of snakes... school prank gone bad. Luckily for her (or not) the jogger she moved over for to let pass, has just pulled her out of the pond. After getting him wet and dirty in the process, he walks her over to a bench to catch her breath, because you know... flailing around in three feet of water is tough stuff! Lilly thanks him for "saving" her and they introduce themselves to each other.
Me: "Lilly, meet Drew.... Drew, this is Lilly!"
Okay now that introductions are over, here's your Sunday Six!
“Umm, you’ve got something—” he started to say as he reached his hand toward my hair.
I saw it out of the corner of my eye as he pulled it from between the strands of my hair. It was long and green and only one word came to mind... Snake! I jumped up, a scream building in my throat, but slapped my hand over my mouth when he dangled the long piece of grass between his fingers. I closed my eyes and settled back down on the bench and thought to myself, I’m such a freaking idiot. “I take it you’re not a fan of the reptile species huh?”
So that's it! My Sunday Six. I hope enjoyed it. It definitely won't be the last time Lilly does something stupid in front on someone. I hope you'll come back next week to see what happens next!
