Thank you for stopping by for Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors! I appreciate all the comments that are left. The feedback is immensely helpful for me to improve my writing and to gauge readers’ responses to the characters.
Rachel is on an unexpected date with Rodger. He’s an A-list actor and Rachel’s a little (a lot) star-struck. At this point, she’s not really sure what to say. [For reference, Rodger is Scottish and he’ll be playing a Scottish privateer named Rohbert in a movie he’s just been cast in.]
Thankfully, Rodger picked up the conversation, describing how the weather was different. From there he led the topic to driving on the wrong side of the road.
This has to be a dream; someone pinch me. She heard herself laugh at something, though she couldn’t recall what Rodger’d said.
Rodger leaned closer to her as the wailing and blaring of a fire truck drove past. She felt his breath on her hair; another shiver of pleasure snaked its way through her body. “The accent I’m to have as Rohbert is a bit different than the one I speak normally,” Rodger said, continuing with the random topics.
“If you say so,” Rachel finally managed to find her voice. “To tell the truth, I can’t even hear the difference between a Scottish and Australian accent.”
