#SixSunday - Just Shut Up and Listen!


Happy Sunday Sixers! Thanks for stopping by.  I always appreciate the comments and encouragement. I look forward to hopping around to other blogs and reading what other talented authors have shared!  

I'm continuing with my YA Paranormal book, ONCE AND FOR ALL, the sequel to ONCE AGAIN, which is now available (links to the right), and was reviewed recently at Night Owl Reviews! ONCE AND FOR ALL follows Phoebe Campbell and Todd Miller as they encounter their own reincarnation mystery.

Last week, Phoebe's handheld saw kept Todd from further explaining his actions that day at school. However, in today's snippet, he's been put off long enough. Once the cutting is done and the power tool safely put away, he insists Phoebe listen to him. He apologizes. She tells him she doesn't care, that it doesn't matter what he does. He wants her to understand what was going through his mind, but she keeps interrupting. Finally he says...

"Just shut up and listen to me for a second!"

I crossed my arms and just sat, pretending to be completely uninterested in what he had to say.

"I know you're pissed, and I don't blame you. And I know it matters even though you say it doesn't. You saw me in the hall with Tina and you wondered what the heck I was doing flirting with another girl after I kissed you yesterday. I'm well aware it made me look like a total a*$."

Hmmm... maybe Todd's not as dumb and insensitive as he seems! Come back next week to see how their conversation proceeds!

  5. Good for him for trying. Now I'm curious as to why he flirted with the other girl.
