I thought up a working title for this piece! I hate it, but it’s better than just calling it “new story” all the time, so we’re going with “trustfall” since a huge part of this novel revolves around trust. I think “trust fall” is actually two words but I’m exercising creative license here and making it one.
Last week, in the first six lines of the novel, POV character Saul was “ogling” a handsome man his sister had told him about. These lines (slightly more than 6, sorry) pick up right after that.
Speaking of my sister… I glanced around, but didn’t see her. Ah well. The man I presumed to be Alex walked around the desk then to head elsewhere, and I caught him with a light touch on his forearm.
He stopped and turned, polite smile in place. “Can I help you?”
“I’m looking for my sister Hannah. Supposed to be picking her up.”
His eyebrows went up and he gave me a quick once-over, taking in my black slacks and tie. “You’re Saul?”
I wasn’t sure what to think of the surprise on his face after that once-over, but I smiled. “Someone’s been talking about me. And I’m willing to bet you’re Alex.”
An adorable reddish flush crept up his cheeks. “Guess someone’s been talking about me, too.”
“She talks a lot.”
