I skipped ahead in the scene, jumping over some dialogue between Grace and Luke to get to this week's six. I like what I skipped over, but I really want to get into the heart of this particular scene, which should start next week. I'm so excited.
If you're new to this blog, you can find the six sentence snippets that lead up to this scene by looking in the May section of my sidebar and clicking on the Six Sentence Sunday snippets.
My heart beats a crazy rhythm against my ribs as I stretch just a little bit further, and lightly scratch the piglet behind its miniature ear. It’s tiny stub of a tail circles wildly as it leans into my touch. “It likes me!”
Luke’s jaw tightens. “It figures,” he mutters.
Something about his expression as he studies my new friend causes the bottom to fall out of my stomach.
