Six Sentence Sunday - All That Glitters #3

This snippet is from my work in progress, ALL THAT GLITTERS. (Other snippets from this story can be found here.)

Introduction to these sentences: This excerpt follows shortly after my last SSS post, where we meet Annie's sexy hero Quinn for the first time.  Driving on country roads for the first time, Annie loses control of her truck and drives into a ditch. Quinn sees her accident, so he stops to help.  Both Annie and her truck are fine, but when she tries to get out of the truck, her door hits the steep slope of the ditch. She can't open the door wide enough to squeeze through - she's trapped.  Quinn has just told her he'll pull her truck out of the ditch, and Annie has decided she wants out of the truck first.  Quinn's suggested she crawl through the window, assuring her he'll make sure she doesn't fall.

Here are the six:

          Annie bit her lip as she pivoted toward the open window, toward him.  She couldn't meet his gaze -- he was too close, too much to handle at this proximity -- but she knew he was watching as she knelt on the driver's seat.  When she tried to crawl forward, her foot became tangled on something.  God, now what?  Annie glanced down --
          Cleavage! 

Quinn's had quite the view. ;)  Poor Annie, though, is too conservative to be anything but embarrassed.

I sense some fun dialogue coming up. Nice six.

Karyn Good said...

Great six! I like that she's concerned with giving a man she's just met an eye full. Getting through that window should make for more interesting complications!

Karyn Good said...

Great six! I like that she's worried about giving an eye full to a man she doesn't know. Getting through that window should make for more interesting complications.
