Six Sentence Sunday, May 13



Happy Mother's Day! Between a Mother's Day event and some work I have to do for the day job, I won't be commenting much today. I'll be back next week though!
Here's another tidbit from the contemporary I'm shopping, By Hook or By Crook. Ivy and Joe (an heiress and her security consultant) had a romantic dalliance while stranded in a mountain cabin during a blizzard. Now that they're free, Ivy is trying to put the genie back in the bottle again:


"Now that we're back in the real world, I think we ought to try to put things between us on a more professional footing once again," Ivy said.
"The real world? I didn't know we'd ever left it. Tell me about this distinction. Why is this motel parking lot the real world, but a cabin an hour or so away magically isn't?" His jaw had that pugnacious angle that it took on when he made her life difficult, and Ivy sighed.

Nice, Linda. Somehow, I don't think that genie is going to cooperate. Not if Joe has anything to do with it. ;-)
