One Moment: Time Changes Everything

My amazing friend and writer, Louise Gornall, tagged me in the next blog game – The One Moment Game. It’s been a while since I’ve played a game, and I always LOVE to share excerpts, so here it goes.

Here’s what you’ve got to do…
1.     Search for the words moment, forever, time or the like in your writing.
2.     Pick your favorite chunk containing one of these words.
3.     Post it on your blog.
4.     Tag others.
5.     And then head back over The Girl and post the link so we can read!
(Don’t forget to title your post One Moment: (The title of your story)!)
Don’t have anything? Write us a three paragraph story where time is everything!
So, here goes… FROM Time Changes Everything, my debut release published by Entranced Publishing on May 13, 2013.

“Jake!” Amanda climbed out of the booth and hugged him around the neck.
He folded his arms around her, and trapped her against him, while he held his beer bottle carefully so he wouldn’t spill on her. After letting go, they stared at one another for a moment -- a long moment. He observed her new look, starting with her glossy hair. His gaze lingered on her cleavage and the tantalizing glimpse of her breasts. The combination of the print skirt, pink sweater and tall boots made her stand out in the sea of black dresses.
Chloe cleared her throat. “Want to sit down?”
“Of course.” Jake escorted Amanda into the booth then squeezed his tall body next to her. He always had trouble fitting into booths, but he didn’t mind since he sat next to Mandy.
Amanda opened her mouth to talk, then closed it. She placed her fingers against her lips and shook her head in disbelief. “What are you doing here?”
“Well, I was searching for you, believe it or not. I heard you were in the city, and I needed to know if this tie went with my shirt. What do you think?”
Her friends laughed. Amanda, on the other hand, remained wordless, biting that full lip of hers.
What the hell did she think? He looked at her, that damn lip calling his name. Shit. Since when did her lips entice him? He stiffened. Why did she have to look so damn good?
