This snippet is from Emmily, Unbound, an SFR story. To read a compilation of all snippets posted for this story, click Here: Emmily Unbound, Chapters 1 & 2 Emmily, the main character, has lost pretty much everything in the last twelve months: her marriage, her parents, her job, and her house. She and her dog, Murphy, have moved to the mountains of Pennsylvania into an old, remote, hunting camp her parents willed to her. On her first day there, along a desolate road she's been forced at gunpoint to haul a wounded man to her house.
As far as Kade? He’d probably look nice in anything though. Lucky mate of his…
Now, the snippet:
Women are eyeing him and, judging by their expressions, seem to have no problem with the dirty uniform pants.
His long blond hair would be a draw to a woman who likes that sort of thing. I don’t think I do. I’m pondering hair length, picturing Kade's boss, General, with close-cropped hair like my husband wore.
Nope. No matter how I try to make it work, General’s hair looks so right on him. Just another reason to not like the guy since I’m definitely a short-hair kind of girl.
And while I'm tallying things that don't work for me, General is kind of tall for my liking, way taller than Jason.
Kade looks my way, pulling me from my thoughts of Mr. D.H. He says, “Emmily, come here.”
That's the snippet. If you'd like to read a few more to complete her thought, read on.
He’s holding a bunch of bananas and his brows are furrowed. When I get to him, I lean close and say, “They don’t have bananas where you’re from? What country do you live in?”
He blushes and starts to stutter, trying to come up with some kind of explanation, I suppose.
