Here are another six from my yet to be edited novella Dancing in the Dark. Matt and Janey have known each other for around ten years, but Matt's job (Janey's said he's a spy) has kept him from pursuing anything with her even though it's what they've both wanted. They've come close a couple of times and now they're stranded by a flooding rain storm. He's just flown in from the other side of the world, another time zone, and his internal clock is all messed up. Where he was it's already tomorrow.
"What day does your body say it is?”
He looked at her, a little puzzled, but answered, “Tomorrow.”
“Then today isn't happening for you, is it?” Her voice sounded husky as she whispered against his lips.“Today's for me. Please give me today.”
This is from a romance novella I've written, but haven't edited fully. The tentative title is Dancing in the Dark. These six, not the first six, are in the heroine's POV.
She was Janey Blackmon, Plain Jane, as she'd been known in high school, and he was Matt Kincaid. Super Cool Matt Kincaid. Known only as Matt, when all the other Matts had to use their last names to differentiate themselves. An enigma even then, but one that drew people to him. As she'd been drawn.
She watched him walk down the hall, a tall shadow against the stormy sky beyond the living room window.
