Another day, another round of Six Sunday. My thoughts and prayers go out to those who were affected by Hurricane Sandy. For those of you unfamiliar with my Six Sunday posts, I share sixes from my novel which I hope to have finished by next year. This week, we focus on the end of my chapter where Ryan and Cammy are about to head off in their separate directions. Cammy still has possession of Ryan’s watch and won’t give it back to him. In turn, Ryan has swapped her flip-flops and insists on keeping them until she gives back the watch. She doesn’t care and walks out of the coffee shop with him in her bare feet. The next few Sundays will focus on this scene.
I will be out for most of the day, so I won’t be able to view your posts until sometime this evening. So here it is:
He shielded his eyes and fumbled for his sunglasses as the blistering, sun’s rays pierced him like a thousand laser beams at once. Still clinging on to the watch, she giggled as he tried to swipe it out of her hand. He walked backwards onto the black pavement of the parking lot, his chest tight as he gritted his teeth.
“Cammy, my dad gave me that watch for my birthday, just give it already!”
Twirling the watch with one finger, she smirked and took two steps forward towards him onto the pavement, neglecting how sizzling it was under the midday sun.
“Whoa! Hot! Hot!” she cried, hopping around on the asphalt, which was more like a red-hot skillet on her soft, dirty soles.
