Six Sentence Sunday #SixSunday



for November 25th, 2012.


This week I offer an excerpt from my contemporary romance, All My Tomorrows.


Although Peter has seen Alice McGillicutty from a distance, this is the first time they meet, and he doesn't get off on the right foot when he flounces into her office addressing her as "Mrs."




“It’s you,” Peter said, frozen in the doorway.
“Not if you are looking for Mrs. McGillicutty. Why would you presume I am married?”
“I – well…with a name like McGillicutty, I assumed…”
“So you assume every female McGillicutty emerges from the womb married?”
The shock from recognition fell away as his face relaxed, and he said, “No, of course not; I apologize if I offended you, Miss McGillicutty.”

  1. Fun dialogue. Nice to see the man caught off-guard.

    1. Thanks. I was worried it wouldn't make sense out of context. If I could only have had 8 sentences...
