Six Sentence Sunday, May 20th



Another tidbit from my contemporary, By Hook or By Crook. Joe and Ivy wagered on a game of pool. When she won, she got to claim her prize: dancing together to the old Aaron Neville tune,  "Tell It Like It Is." In this scene, they're on the dance floor of a tiny bar and the sexual tension is rising.


"You should tell it like it is, Ivy." She could barely hear his hoarse voice over the music, but she understood him loud and clear. "Do you want me?"
His honest question demanded an honest answer. She swallowed and decided to be braver than she felt. "You know that I do," she returned, unable to look away.
