Today’s six are from this year’s NaNo novel.
Eric, one of the MC’s, has fallen in love with Mariella. She’s engaged to another guy, Dennis, but Eric decides to reveal his feelings anyways. Decide having feelings for him too, Mariella quickly turns him down and lists the reasons she loves Dennis.
Her words hit Eric in the stomach. He’s smart and funny too, and takes care of Mariella; hasn’t he shown that, time and again? But this last bit – he can’t compete. He’s not a good man, not like Dennis is.
“I’m sorry,” she says as she takes a step towards him, fingers twitching at her side. “There’s no point in wondering what might have been, because it is what it is.”
