Seven 11 Blog Hop ~ 10 Years

WOW! I can't believe it's Dec 11th already, time is just flying by!

This month I'm going to show an excerpt from 10 Years, book 5 in the Time for Love Series. It's a rough draft, so please excuse the fact that it's unedited. Also, don't forget to stop by the other blogs participating in the Hop to see what the other authors are working on now.

Enjoy and Happy Holiday's!

10 Years ~ Gwen (20 years old)

As I swayed my hips to the rhythm, I was vaguely aware of the hands at my hips, as the alcohol running through me numbed my limbs deliciously.

I needed this, especially after spending another evening at the ball fields, shooting pictures of the baseball team, and of course, of Craig. Craig with his six-feet of gorgeous, toned muscles, eyes the color of the sea after a storm, and the deep-belly laugh that effected me so much I felt it in my bones any time I heard it.

I was torturing myself, and even though I realized it, I was unable to stop doing it.

Aliyah told me I was a glutton for punishment.

“Why don’t we go to one of the one-hundred other frat parties going on tonight, Gwen?” She’d asked before we left our apartment, just like she did every time I begged her to go with me to a Sig Tau party. “You know Craig is going to be there. He’ll try to talk to you, you’ll ignore him, yada, yada, yada… Same shit, different day.”

“Oh, c’mon, you know you like seeing him, you don’t have to deny it on my account,” I said, even though I knew it wasn’t fair. Craig and I had met Aliyah when we were twelve, and had been friends all through Middle and High school. But, being the loyal friend that she is, when I stopped talking to Craig after our USC tour, she’d stopped talking to him too. And although I knew she probably missed him almost as much as I did, I was grateful that she’d taken my side.

Even if she didn’t fully understand why.
