Six Sentence Sunday ~ 4/1

Happy April Fool's Day to all you fools out there!!

This week's 6 take the thread of the story up right where last week's left off in Always and Forever.  Zach and his grandmother have asked Lilly to be a decoy date for Zach, and she is trying to figure out how to get out of the situation without losing her job.  It is from Lilly's point of view.

 

     If Zach asked her on a date without all this explanation, she would have been delighted; but as things stood, she didn’t fancy being a decoy to fool his parents and keep other women away.


     Zach seemed no longer able to take the tension. “I would pay you for your time, of course.”

     Lilly’s eyebrows drew together. “You want to pay me to date you?”

     “Now, dear,” Leticia said quickly, “that’s not really what he meant.”

I hope you are enjoying this series of sentences.  This was the first scene that formed in my mind when I starting thinking of this book, and I'm quite partial to it.

Thanks for reading!  Happy Sunday!

  1. Great six, Chantel! I love this part, because Lilly won't have it, and Zach keeps putting his foot in his mouth. Happy Sunday!

    1. Thanks, Melinda! I think I'll do a few more possibly in this scene but then change to some of Zach's POV. I don't want people who haven't read the story to think he's a total heel :-) He just doesn't always think before he speaks. Your six was fabulous this week, too!

  2. Ouch! He doesn't really understand her very well at this point, does he? I'm guessing that will change... :)

    1. I appreciate you coming back! I had a little problem with the publish function... I told it 1:00 like I always do, but apparently I put 1 pm. Darn it! I got grayed out at Six Sentence Sunday website this week. Will definitely pay more attention! Thanks for coming back though! :-)
