Hello and happy Sunday … Thanks for stopping by.

Today’s snippet is from “I think I Love You”, book 3 of the Australian Sports Stars series. I moved forward a little to the reception. This is Sarah’s POV.
Sarah followed Markus towards the doors. Again, she noticed how sensational he looked in that tuxedo, the white shirt, and the dark grey tie. His blond hair was cut short and the usual slight wave was gone. She liked it when his hair was a bit longer. It gave him that mischievous look that she’d known since childhood. That same look in his blue eyes that had radiated trouble fifteen years ago, when he’d taken her hand and led her to the top of a diving board with the words Let’s go flying.
Today, he’d even shaved for the occasion.
Her lower body tingled, and she rolled her eyes at herself. For crying out loud, it’s Marky, she told herself.Amused, she let out a little chuckle as she caught up to him. “Slow down Mr. Superfit. Miss Lazybum following here.”
He laughed, and a shiver ran down her spine. Again.
What was the matter with her today?
He took her hand and excused himself while getting through the crowd. No way was the party nearly over. Rather the opposite, she thought. This party was about to warm up.
She couldn’t believe it. Her chance to meet someone from the football scene, and she was leaving because of a stinking headache.
She was cursed to end up old and on her own.
And that thought hurt.
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

Oh yeah, her plans are thwarted…or are they? Great snippet, Iris. 🙂
Thanks, siobhan 🙂
Oh, she’s beginning to notice him in a different light. I don’t think she’s going to end up alone. 🙂
Hmm … Yes and No, I suppose. Thanks for stopping by, Karen.
I have a feeling things are going to go her way…enjoyed the snippet!
For a little while, yes 🙂 Thanks, Veronica 🙂
Like the best descriptions, your description of his hair said so much more than what it looked like. And, as a guy who finds the unshaven look annoying (make up your mind already — either shave or grow a beard!), I loved this line. “Today, he’d even shaved for the occasion.”
Thanks, Ed. Much appreciated …. and LOL re the unshaven look 🙂
