Hello everyone! Thank you for joining me for the 120th week of My Sexy Saturday.
Here are the details: every Saturday, published and unpublished authors will be sharing 7 words, sentences, or paragraphs from a work-in-progress or an already published story.
Today’s sexy is from A Ghost for Christmas. Not a sci-fi romance, however, ghosts are a part of our huge galaxy, right? *g*
Jodie stood at the window in the sitting area, admiring the splendid view. Although she’d been there once before with her parents, she now held a greater appreciation for the beauty. At eight, she remembered the sound of water rushing over the Falls, but couldn’t recall any of the amazing lights dazzling the night sky now that the sun was setting. The night was made for lovers—young or old. Warmth spread through her as she watched a few couples, bundled up, walking hand in hand or with their arms wrapped around one another. They reminded her of her parents.
Married nearly fifty years, they never ceased to amaze her with their love for one another. Whether it was affectionate glances, playful swats when something was humorous or the lip-locks shared when they thought no one was looking, they’d taught her so much about love and respect. While she was nowhere near ready for kids and marriage, the day would come when she’d find the man with whom to spend the rest of her life.
She scoffed at herself for thinking such deep thoughts when tonight was about fantasies and not happily ever after. She focused on the rushing water once again. After her long soak in the massive tub, she’d towel-dried her body and wound her hair tight within a second one. Her long, thick dark locks sometimes took an hour or more to dry so she’d had to wind it snug as possible in the hopes of straightening the wavy mess before it turned frizzy.
Lost in thought and in the view outside, Jodie gasped as a cold breeze moved over her body. She shivered but remained still. The hotel really played up the stories. Somewhere, someone was probably sending cold air into the room to make her think she shared the suite with a specter.
Too bad they chose the wrong woman to mess with. She wouldn’t fall for it.
Suddenly, as she peered into the reflective glass, a face appeared behind her. Jodie whipped around and fell back against the window.
Oh my fucking God!
