Event: Official Kissing Day Blogfest - The Excerpt
Official Kissing Day Blogfest
The following is an excerpt from the spy thriller I'll be finishing by New Year's called Sin City Zion:
Phoebe stood in front of the highrise window looking out over the strip. She hugged her arms around her as much from the air conditioning as from the chill of fear. Nick came up behind her and rubbed the goosebumps from her arms.
“How are you doing?”
“I don’t know,” she said, surprised by the honesty of her response. Her stiff upper lip was failing her. She put her head on his chest. “Do you think they’re all right?”
“Sure. Don’s probably got the Detsois holed up in a place even swankier than this.” His voice managed an upbeat tone, but Phoebe felt the hard thumping of his heart.
“What are we going to do, Nick?”
“I don’t know yet.”
He always knew.
She felt tears welling. To push them away she did the first thing that came to mind. She kissed him.
