First post of the year!! Continuing where we left off – well, not exactly but close enough – another six-ish sentences from Stumble Forward. Catch all the other snippets from lots of great authors on the Facebook page

…..

“Go home, Alec.” Stella slid out of the booth, dragging her coat behind her. Alec sat up, and started to protest but she shook her head. “Go home! It’s-” she checked her watch, “Christ, it’s one in the morning. I have to drive back to Dallas in a few hours.” She shoved her arms roughly into the sleeves of her coat, freeing her long hair from the collar with the flick of both wrists. “Go home to your giant and talk to him! I’m back in town with Mark in a couple of weeks. I’ll call you and let you know when, and then the four of us can go out and have a very awkward, very expensive dinner…on you! You owe me!”

    Great touch with the hair. (I have long hair — it’s so annoying with a coat!) I’d love to know what led up to that scene.

    I get the sense that she’s run out of patience and he may be making a big fuss out of nothing. I love the energy that comes with her words and actions.

    Wonder why she’s so impatient with him. Makes me want to know more about the dynamics of these two.

    This scene just feels so real. I like the way this is written, and I’m curious about this giant Alec is supposed to go home and talk to!
