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 directly after my last SSS post. 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. Last time, when her foot gets caught on something, Annie looks down and realizes that her position, crawling on the seat toward him, is displaying her cleavage to Quinn.
Here are the six:
Her hand flew to her chest to clutch her shirt closed - albeit belatedly - as she kicked her foot to free it. When the passenger side seatbelt flung against the far door with a clunk, Annie spared a glance at Quinn. His gaze fixed on hers, as if he was struggling not to look lower. His brown eyes were darker than a moment ago and he was grinning - yep, he'd seen straight down her shirt. Some part of her was immensely relieved she'd grabbed her lacy bra that morning instead of the frayed sports one she usually wore.
The other part wished she'd worn a turtleneck.
Annie isn't out of the truck yet! I think I'll post more excerpts from this scene over the next couple of Sundays, at least until Annie has two feet on the ground!
