And now for today's post. Last week, I started posting from my current work-in-progress, "Dusk". Zoe Gray, the heroine, is battling back after the death of her father... and a whole lot of other drama that happened before he died. Adrian Shaw moves to town, and the two become fast friends. For the first time in months, Zoe sees a light at the end of the tunnel. But... Adrian is more than meets the eye, although what meets the eye is pretty nice! In the following passage, Zoe is getting her first look at Adrian from across the school parking lot. And yeah... she likes what she sees.
Even from a distance I could tell he was tall, at least a head taller than the boy getting into the truck next to him. His hair, dark and just long enough to turn up on the ends was just the right amount of messy. I couldn't see the color of the eyes, but the deep dimples in his cheeks flashed when he smiled at me.
He. Smiled. At me.
I included a couple of pictures that give an idea what I "see" when I picture these two. That's Drew Roy, who played Seth Hancock in Secretariat, and Teresa Palmer, who played Becky in The Sorcerer's Apprentice and Number Six in I Am Number Four.
