Hot For Friday – Dream Fragments

Hot For Friday – Dream Fragments

Welcome to my stop on the weekly Hot for Friday blog hop!  Today I’ve got an excerpt from the short story BETTY & HOWARD’S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE, which is available now, but it’ll also be included as part of the DREAM FRAGMENTS collection out next month:

Three nights ago, after our walk down to the beach, and a wonderful dinner and a drunken game of charades (don’t ask), we went up to bed.  Howard shut the door and came over to me.  I was already on the bed, and he sat next to me.  “Betty,” he said, “you want to know something?  That girl,” Claudia, obviously, “is really something.  But she’s got nothing on you.”  He was staring into my eyes, losing himself in them the way he always has, right from the very first time we met.

I believed him, even though the objective truth is that if you gave me a team of plastic surgeons, every product in the beauty department at Nordstrom’s, a time machine and three wishes from a genie, I still could never compare to that girl.  But in Howard’s world, I’m the only woman there is.  And he’s the only man for me.

Still, you know me, Kat.  I looked up at him, batted my eyes, and used “the voice” on him.  You know exactly what I mean.  Remember how we used to sit up all night in your bedroom practicing until we got it perfect, so that no man would be able to resist us?  I can still do it!  “You’re just trying to get me into bed, Mister,” I said.

He gave it right back to me.  “I’ve already got you in bed, lady.”
