Happy Sunday, Weekend Writing Warriors!
This week's snippet follows up on last week's when Sam and JoJo were wrestling the way they'd done since they were kids and things suddenly got serious. This scene takes place after Sam goes home and JoJo is reflecting on what happened. (You can catch up on earlier excerpts here)
It almost seemed as if Sam had been about to kiss me or something when he was on top of me. Where had that come from? We were best friends, and that was the way I wanted it to stay.
At least I thought I did.
I went to my window and looked across at Sam’s house, but his shade was pulled all the way down and his window was dark. I don’t know how long I sat there hoping for some sign of him, but I fell asleep and was still there when Mama came in to tell me goodnight.
I dreamed about Sam that night, but the only thing I could remember in the morning was him standing on the creek bank yelling something at me, wearing nothing but his Hanes one-hundred-percent cotton, size 30-32 briefs.
And I had absolutely no idea how I knew anything about his underwear.
Shades of Blue is still a WIP, but you can buy my other books here, and please also check out the other Weekend Writing Warriors and the Snippet Sunday folks. Something for everyone among these talented writers!
