So even though I can't give any details like name, release date, cover, synopsis - all the things that make up a book, I decided I was going to share a sneaky peek inside. WOOT! Here ya go: ©S. L. Scott 2015
“What do you do for money?”
“My profession?” He watched the peculiar girl twirl away from him. Her skirt ballooned out, brushing against his gray wool covered legs.
But she stopped and replied, “No, just in the general sense.”
One of his eyes squinted, completely confused by the nonsensical question. “I’m an architect.”
She seemed to agree. “That makes sense.” She left this time while he watched her go, but she didn’t walk. She floated. She danced her way in red snow boots through the stiff crowd dressed in suits and evening attire. The girl wearing a chartreuse sundress with little pink flowers embroidered around the bottom in the middle of winter stood out at this party and completely captivated him.
There were plenty of people he knew and some he should talk to, but he didn’t move from where he was standing. He waited for her, confused to as why, but he did.
She returned as if they were lasting friends, as if she had no doubt he would still be there, waiting.
The young architect and the girl in the sundress stood next to each other in silence. The brownie had been eaten, and a cocktail now replaced it in her hand, which she waved flagrantly to the music not noticing—or not caring—that the liquid was spilling as she moved.
Finally speaking up, he asked, “How many drinks have you had tonight?” But he really wanted to ask if she was drunk. He had never seen someone so careless before, so carefree before. She twirled again, and he swiftly took the glass from her and set it down on the table. For the safety of the drink, of course.
“This is my first.”
Hope you enjoyed. Coming Soon with more details too. hehe
