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 told her he'll pull her truck out of the ditch, and Annie decided she wants out of the truck first. She's had to crawl out through the window, which has been a special challenge for her. Last week, Quinn took her by the waist and she realized she'd need to brace herself on his shoulders in order to escape the truck. We left it off with Annie letting go her fears and reaching for Quinn.
Here are the six:
Then Annie was suspended in the air with her eyes still safely shut. She couldn't open them and see him that close - she just couldn't. But her other senses weren't so easy to control, not when his muscles rippled beneath her fingers and his spicy scent teased her.
When Quinn lowered her, her body brushed like a whisper against his until tall grasses tickled her ankles. A heart beat later, she was standing on solid ground.
"You can open your eyes now."
Phew! There, she is out the truck! :)
