I flipped a few pages past last week's six sentences and came up with the following from Against the Wind, my "reunion on the run" novel. Michael convinced someone he's a famous Argentine soccer player, so Blair asks him how he does it, how he pretends so well, knowing he spent some time working undercover. Here are the six:
He looked out of the terminal, rain slashing at the windows. “We all pretend at some point in our lives.” His dark eyes caught and held hers. “We pretend to keep from offending, to please someone, to be able to live with ourselves, to get by. To get what we want. Countless reasons.”
Comments are welcome!
