Six Sentence Sunday 9/25/11



Today's six is more from my recently contracted novella Last Friday Night. Last week, we met Tyler and everyone had their own opinions about him. Now, let's see what Jessie, my other hero, thought.


Jessie didn’t know what to think of Tyler. There was something about the overgrown man that intrigued him, but he found himself irritated just as much as he was intrigued. The two of them had finished up their business relatively quickly and Jessie had offered to take Tyler home, but Tyler had refused. At first, Jessie had been taken aback; he wasn’t used to people turning down good-natured offers. He wondered if it had something to do with the funny looks Tyler had been shooting him the entire time they’d been in the cafe, but then as he was leaving, he saw Tyler sidle up to the waitress who’d served them and things became a little clearer.
 
But even now as he sat in his car atop the hill overlooking the ruins of what was so close to being his new home, he didn’t know what to make of the other man. 

For more authors who may or may not be turning down good-natured offers, be sure to check out the Six Sentence Sunday site here.
