Six Sentence Sunday, Apr. 2nd

Okay, we had some heavy stuff last week. This week, a little fun. Here's another snippet from my western WIP, Nobody's Bride. Our heroine, Maddy, notices that William, our troubled Civil War vet, has a button missing from his shirt:

“Let me fix it,” she heard herself saying. “Rufus had a sewing kit in the wagon.”
“Don’t worry about it—some things, you just can’t fix.” 
Her eyes swerved away from the enticing sight of his bare belly up to his face.
“That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try,” she said softly. 
“As long as you don’t get your hopes dashed when the fix doesn’t take.”

Great subtext to their conversation!

Oh, Linda! There's so much depth there in that conversation--so much unspoken. Well done!

Wow, the undercurrents here. Nice conflict between these two already!
