8 Sentence Sunday #3

Mattie has just arrived at her fiance’s home for the first time, and she’s having serious second thoughts.

Her eyes darted to the vacant driver’s seat. She could crawl over the divider and be gone before anyone realized what was happening. She’d never driven a car before, but how hard could it be?

Before she could move toward the steering wheel and freedom, the door on her side opened. Frederick stooped and smiled at her, handsome even without a tuxedo on. He wore a single-breasted jacket with a blue tie and a white shirt beneath. The jacket was unfastened at the topmost button, allowing his vest to peek out: a deeper blue to complement the lighter tie.

When she didn’t move, he said, “Are you coming out?”


Tell me what you think! And if you’re so inclined, you can head over to dieselpunks.org and check out the #8ss group there.
