LW coverHappy August! This month I’ll be posting from my debut women’s fiction novel, The Lone Wolf.

When Kasey’s marriage falls apart, she turns to Andrew, a soldier she just met, for help. But their friendship pulls up a past he’d rather avoid. Can Kasey save Andrew from himself while saving her marriage too?

Last week, Andrew reflected on the first time he saw Kasey. This week, she’s reminiscing with her husband, David.

David chuckled and asked, “Remember our first date?”

“The waiter dropped a plate of lasagna in my lap. I was so mortified, and then you stood up and argued with the manager until he agreed to pay to have my dress dry-cleaned. Everyone was staring at us, cheering you on while I just wanted to crawl under the table and die.”

“I didn’t realize until later how embarrassed you were; I thought you’d never talk to me again.”

“But then the next day you were back in the library and you told me that we were going out for a do-over date, sans messy Italian food – how could I say no to that kind of confidence?”

“I guess I just know what I want.”

I looked up at my husband and asked, “Am I still what you want?”

  1. The last line of the snippet raises the most important question of all. Thanks for sharing.

  2. You touch my heart, ED. The last line did it. Lovely snippet and then the eternal question.

  3. Isn’t that just the question? Lovely description. I could see the scene playing out in my mind. Great snippet.

  4. Oh those tough questions! If she has to ask, then things must not be going too well….excellent excerpt, liked the shift in tone at the end – very effective writing.

  5. Just come right out and ask it. Way to go! Hope he answers in the positive.

  6. But what if she says no? ;-)
