Six Sentence Sunday - Sept 25

Does anybody remember necking at the drive-in?

     I.O.U. SEX is the story of three women who make a pact to search for their former high school boyfriends—years after graduation.

     For the past few weeks, we’ve been focusing on Kiki and her assignation with Greg, ending with her vow to “knock him off his pedestal.”

     Starting this Sunday, we’ll be posting excerpts from June’s story. In this scene, memories from 1965 and her first love, Denny, surface. They’re in the back seat of his car at the Jefferson Drive-In in Dallas, and the windows are fogging over.

 “You better slow down or you'll get more than you bargained for." He turned and grasped her shoulders, staring into her blue eyes. "Or have you changed your mind?"

        June scooted away, her warm feelings cooled by Denny's question. She pushed her long blonde hair off her face and anchored it behind her ears. "You know how I feel about going all the way—why can't we just have some fun?"

     We think you’ll agree that Denny’s idea of “fun” might not be the same as June’s. An eighteen-year-old male’s hormones seem to change his perspective on everything, don’t you think?

  1. "fun" really can mean so many things. Hopefully they will find a compromise.

  2. He seems out of control...ready for more than she is willing to offer! Nicely portrayed! And i wonder, has she changed her mind or she is just playing hard to get? I bet he is wondering the same thing ;) I just loved this snippet.

  3. Gotta love that warning. She has no idea what she's getting into does she? Great six.

  4. What a great premise for a story! Love the vividness of the "retro" story. Great six!
