Last week, the snippet I posted ended in the middle of a paragraph. This week I'm starting in the middle of the same paragraph.
Last week I had several first time visitors, or at least first time commentators so I'm doing a short set up.
DWARFED is a YA manuscript featuring 16 year old Grace, who temporarily finds herself living on a working hog farm in Michigan, Luke Searc, who works for the farm, and Spēs, a newborn piglet who needs a little extra care. Grace has a big heart and a stubborn nature. She also has a genetic condition called achondroplasia dwarfisam.
A collection of snippets from DWARFED can be found here. And now, this week's snippet.
His strong, calloused fingers wrap around my palm and wrist. He digs his heels into the ground and pulls me to my feet. “I guess she was worried about you.”
“It seems so,” I mutter.
I keep my head bent to hide my bright red cheeks as I take my new pig from him, and cuddle her against my chest. The solid feel of her weight against my heart doesn’t stop way stomach jumps around as I peer up at Luke through my eyelashes.
Had I really almost kissed him?
