Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors with eight from LICK. My Contemporary NA out 1st July. Here’s the quickie blurb….
Evelyn Thomas’s plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure as hell never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hang-over to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man beside her, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.
We’re continuing straight on from last week. If you’d like to do a catch up, the entirety of what we’ve covered of the first chapter can be found here. Our heroine is reflecting upon her goal for the previous night and discreetly checking out the condom she still has tucked into the side of her bra. Meanwhile, the gorgeous stranger hanging out with her on the bathroom floor, is sorting out some pain killers to deal with her hangover.
The condom remained whole and hearty. How disappointing. Or maybe not. Finally plucking up the courage to get back on the horse, so to speak, and then not remembering it would have been horrible.
The man handed me the glass of water and placed two pills into my hand. He then sat back on his haunches to watch me. He had an intensity to him that I was in no condition to deal with.
“Thanks,” I said, then swallowed the aspirin.
