Love Bites, Anti-Slush Blog Hop


Second entry into the Inkinglettes Love Bites, Anti-Slush blog hop. I think seeing as I may be a judge (still being debated), it doesn't matter how many times I enter. And if there's a little story to tell, you have to just tell it. x



May the Force (of Love) Be With You.

Amy’s eyes followed Adam; head buried in papers unable to see where he was going let alone who was in the room.  He sat at his desk, absorbed in his work. She’d loved Adam since he arrived six months, three weeks, two days and one hour and nine minutes ago; obviously love at first sight.
She knew he didn't have a girlfriend despite the many admires for his heart (and body). Being Valentine’s Day, it seemed right to send a rose and card with little clues that would lead him romantically to her. Too many Mills and Boon novels had diluted her thinking of the real world; love always the answer, the most powerful force in the universe and Amy was going to use that force on Adam today.
The tux wearing courier (with red bow tie) waltzed in singing his Valentine tune of love as he delivered Valentines.  Eagerly, Amy watched Adam’s face light up as he opened his card and smelt the rose. His smoky eyes drifted across the office and Amy’s heart stopped, she daren’t breath. Her Mills and Boon romance was coming true as Adam walked with such purpose towards her, such intensity in his gaze.
There was no one else in the room; such was her passion for the man walking towards her. She didn't even notice Pete sitting next to her until Adam took him by the hands, gazing deep into his eyes.

  12. I adore this line: "She’d loved Adam since he arrived six months, three weeks, two days and one hour and nine minutes ago". So sad & charming & well written. I'd like to follow this girl in more adventures--she's so emotionally accessible with her heart on her sleeve (love her!)
