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, she was struggling to get out with her upper body hanging out the window. She froze when he touched her.
Here are the six (Annie speaks first):
"What are you doing?"
Annie jerked away from him but, given her position, she couldn't get far. Ignoring her question, Quinn stepped closer and reached for her waist again. She tensed as the warmth of his large hands seeped through the thin cotton shirt to her skin.
"Relax." When he spoke, his breath tickled her neck, and she instinctively leaned forward.
Annie is almost out of the truck. And, like I said last week, I'll continue to post from this scene until her feet are on the ground. With only six sentences at at time, this seems to be taking a loooong time.
