Today’s six are from the novel I’m currently querying, The Lone Wolf. Kasey, the MC, has just had a huge fight with her husband. She told him she wanted him out; he had a different idea.
He opened the box to reveal a small ring, a simple band with alternating diamonds and sapphires set in it, and asked, “Will you take me back?”
I looked down at my husband, feeling nothing for him: no hate, no love, nothing. I thought of his shouted abuse, his slap, the terror I’d felt when he broke my car window; I thought of Andrew, of how it had felt to kiss him; and finally I thought of Aida, crying in the park over the idea of losing her father.
“I don’t know.” I looked him directly in the eyes. “I don’t know.”
