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.
Tilting her head slightly to look at him, she let out a little sigh. He laughed and placed his arm around her for a little hug.
“Want to dance?”
His mouth was so close to her ear, she could feel his breath on her skin as he spoke. A little shiver went down her spine, and it took her by surprise. She’d known Markus for almost twenty years, and she couldn’t remember her body responding to him like this. It was a bit eerie. The combination of red wine, hangover, and the Panadol was obviously too much for her. After all, they’d shared lunches together at school, went together to movies or concerts, shared heartaches, and even their first kiss celebrating Mark’s thirteen’s birthday. Both decided then and there that it wasn’t for them. In all fairness, it’d been their third kiss, but they were about five years old when their mouths had accidentally met for the first time, and Markus had given her a wet, sloppy kiss in Kindergarten as well when she’d fallen off the slide.
So why was her body betraying her today?
“I’ve gotta take a raincheck, Marky,” she replied. “But thanks, anyway.”
“Wanna tell me what’s up with you?” He placed a gentle kiss on her forehead. “You’re usually the first one on the dance floor and the last one to leave.”
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

It must scare her to feel that much. Good snippet, Iris. I found a typo (if you can correct it still): “celebrating Mark’s thirteen’s birthday” should probably be “celebrating Mark’s thirteenth birthday.”
Eeek … can’t believe that slipped through. Thanks for letting me know, siobhan. Much appreciated.
I love how surprised she is by her reaction. You’ve done an excellent job tying it into her backstory.
Wow, thanks Jess for your kind words. Really appreciated! 🙂
Is she chickening out of the dance?
Nah … just not feeling well 🙂
Nice little trip down memory lane and of course the snippet also raises questions for the reader inagoodway, which made me want to keep reading.
Glad you enjoyed this week’s snippet as well. Thanks, Veronica.
Yes, tell him what’s up. 🙂 Loved the snippet.
Glad you liked it, Karen. We’ll find out next week what’s upsetting her.
Surprise, surprise. You’ve got me wondering what, exactly, has made the difference now, and if it’ll last.
We’ll find out soon 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, Ed.
Nice bit of backstory showing their relationship to this point.
Thank you, PT 🙂
