A Friendly Neighbor (Saturday Centus #10)

It's Saturday Centus again, only this week Ms. Matlock has made it even harder.  We have to write in romance style...but at least we get 200 words this time.  If you'd like to join us, you can find the full rules here.  This week's prompt is in italics.  The rest is my mine.

When I turned around I was startled to meet a green eyed gaze. He was tall. And his brawny muscles strained against his tight-fitting t-shirt. “Well hello there, Freckles!” His voice caressed and caused a shiver to run down my spine.

It's Kate, not freckles.”

And sassy, too. I like that.”

Do you have a name?”


And what are you doing here, Mr. Sawyer?” I tried valiantly to hide my attraction.

Skip the Mr, if you would. It's just Sawyer. I moved in next door. And now I'm really liking this neighborhood.

Ok, so his grin was definitely contagious, and those eyes. This could be big trouble.

Welcome then, Sawyer.”

Can't you do better than that?” Without warning he crushed me to his chest and planted his lips on mine. I made a feeble protest and a half-hearted effort to push him away. But the allure was too strong, and it wasn't long until my arms were pulling his head in closer and I deepened the kiss. I felt myself being swept away by the passion he ignited, but luckily I felt a tug on my shirt. We pulled apart guiltily.

Mommy, why are you kissing that man?”

Brilliant! I do believe Tom's not gonna get much bang for his buck in the bodice-ripping department. Poor little guy.

Love, love, love it! This just totally cracked me up!

I have been laughing so hard this morning!

It is fun doing something totally different once in awhile, isn't it?

This is probably actually sellable!

How fun!
