Today, I bring you a snippet from Worthy, my current work-in-progress. In this scene Peter comes close to Tessa for the first time.
Her skin prickled as she felt a presence beside her. She didn’t need to tilt her head to know it was him. It had to be. But she turned around anyway to see him raise his hand in the direction of the bar man.
She stared at the limb he extended. The sterling silver cufflink with blue gemstones that could’ve been tanzanite caught the light and glittered. But it was his fingers that fascinated her. They were long and slender and when he lowered them on the black lacquered top of bar, her heart skipped a beat. It was as if he’d stroked her skin.
Help her. Now she was imagining things.
