SSS: Who is this gorgeous guy anyway?

Thanks to everyone who visits! And thanks especially for your comments, which fill me with as much cheer as Christmas. And that's a lot. :) 

Here's more from Ground Rules, my Christmas fantasy. Alice is a bit confused as to who, exactly, the handsome intruder really is:


“Are you here to…kill me?” The thought should have frightened her out of her mind, yet a cocoon of calm surrounded her.

He burst into laughter, tried to speak, but slumped over, hand atop his abs. Really great abs, from the skin showing where his black tee shirt had shifted, but that was beside the point.

Hooting, he took deep breaths and swiped his eyes. “Oh, that was priceless.”


Next Sunday's Christmas day! I'll be busy with presents and cooking and present cleanup and desserts and then hopefully dreams of sugarplums dancing in my head. May you and yours share a memorable holiday of joy, laughter and love. See you next year!

Cute exchange!

Adore the humour in this. I think all paranormal characters have to have a sense of humour just to offset their marginalized status :D

Had to giggle at the picture that popped into my head. Neat, funny six.

At least his reaction will get her out of her fear one way or another. Well done six, Cate. :)

Vivien Dean said...

I wonder why he thinks that's so funny. Thanks for sharing!

Nina Pierce said...

I want to know why she thinks he's there to kill her. Hmmm...

I'm wondering just what he's there for too, but the banter was fun. Thanks for taking part!

I missed the list deadline for this week, but I did get six sentences up! http://kelworthfiles.wordpress.com/2011/12/18/six-sentence-sunday-more-from-children/

Nice abs and a sense of humor, thumbs up. But...why does she think he's going to kill her?

Pippa Jay said...

Lol, I guess that's a no then. :D

What is going on here!? I would be so mad if someone laughed at me after that question. He needs a good smack. Fun story!
