Today’s six are from my NaNoWriMo novel, which I still have every intention of finishing despite the fact that I still have about 46,000 words to go by midnight Friday.
I’m skipping scenes as I write, trying to get the materialized ones down first. This one comes towards the end. Eric, one of the main characters, has fallen in love with Mariella and makes a move on her, which she rejects.
“But the feeling’s there, right, and you would keep kissing me, if you didn’t have him?” Eric can’t bring himself to say her fiance’s name.
“But I do have him,” Mariella says as she shakes loose his hand, pulling away from him and wrapping her arms around her body. He feels so protective of her right now, wants to kiss away the tears he’s caused her, and it takes all his restraint to stay where he is.
“What is it about him?” Eric asks. “Why is he so special that he gets to have you?”
