Six Sentence Sunday 8-19-12

I can't believe it's Sunday again already.  I think this may be the last SixSunday post before All For Love comes out.  If things are on track, it is set to be released on August 23rd.  I plan to have a giveaway as soon as it goes live, so if you're interested, please watch for that.  

In today's six, Liz is thinking back to the first time Quinn asked her for a kiss.  She was so surprised, she automatically said no.  It was the first time anyone had asked, rather than just ... kissed.  These are her thoughts:


But that night when I said no to the first kiss, even then I’d known he wouldn’t run away. Our connection was so complete it never entered my mind that he would turn away later. I knew, inside my heart and inside my head, that he was the one for me. In fact, after the second date, the kissless date, he called and we talked on the phone through the night. Around dawn, I hung up after the requisite “you first, no you.” It’s amazing how we talked about everything and everyone we’d ever known, and yet we skirted all the important issues until they came around later on down the road and crushed my soul into fine dust which blew away across the desert like ash poured from a crematory urn.

Okay, that's it.  Here's the link if you want to check out some of the other super snippets: http://www.sixsunday.com/
