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 dangling out of the window unsure of how to get to the ground from her position. She froze when Quinn touched her, but ended up leaning toward him when he put his hands on her waist. She is still clenching her shirt closed, trying to prevent Quinn from getting another view of her cleavage. Ah, modesty.
Here are the six:
"Brace yourself on my shoulders," Quinn said.
Annie reached for him with her free hand, but it wasn't enough - she was still awkwardly perched half in and half out, only now she had the added distraction of actually touching him. She wiggled and kicked, trying to inch forward. God, what was she doing? Swimming to him?
Closing her eyes, she let go and placed her other hand on Quinn too.
Once again, Annie is almost out of the truck. If things go as planned, her feet should touch ground next week. :)
