At the risk of sounding EXTREMELY repetitious... I'm posting again from my current WIP ~ Man of Her Dreams. Jared and Lindsay have gone on a picnic near a small lake. Jared, a New York native becomes concerned when he hears rustling in the bushes - his mind immediately thinking it could be a bear, etc. When a rabbit hops out, Lindsay teases him about being 'afwaid of a wittle wabbit'. What follows is a bit of payback.... Use your imagination to finish the scene.

He stood in front of her and bending low, placed the palm of his hands on his thighs. This brought him eye level with her and he could see his reflection in her mirrored sunglasses. He looked big, menacing and a whole lot pissy.
"My first thought was to run because I don't have to outrun the bear, I only have to outrun you." At her outraged gasp he continued, "I run every day, so that would be too easy."
"What was your second thought? She removed her hands from around her knees and lowered them onto the log.
"My second thought--" In a lightning fast move, he scooped her off the log and began to move toward a natural rock shelf diving board over the lake. "--was to jump in the water."

  1. This'll teach her to stifle any future 'wittle wabbit' remarks to big men.

    1. Ha! You are correct, or maybe what happened next will have her looking for reasons for him to be all manly....
      Thanks for reading and commenting.
      Have a great week.

  2. Such a fun scene! I can just imagine the outrage on her face right now. lol. Wonderful job, Sue!

  3. lol - I htink somebody got wet! Fun scene. Made me smile.

  4. Adorably playful... still I wonder if he truly is the boy who cried bear... Imagine both their surprises if something bigger than the wittle wabbit pops out of the bush.

  5. Great excerpt! Good luck with SYTYCW!

  6. Oh NO, I hope the water isn't too cold! Wasn't expecting that, so a very fun excerpt.

  7. Haha! lol. Well, if a dunk in the water is the worst that pissy gets, it'd just lead to good things, right? Great snippet--good action writing. :-)
