Another Saturday full of snippets has rolled around, and I'm happy to be participating again in Saturday Spankings. I’m afraid my TBR list is growing at an alarming rate. I’ve been putting up snippets from Cassie’s Space, coming in December and also from many works in progress. There is a lot of Cassie in my head. Today's snippet is from this first book.
This time Cassie has gotten herself if more hot water than ever. She knew from the time she began this deception, that Tom would be furious if he ever found out. She’s lied and kept him in the dark for months, but she knows she can’t keep it up. She’s decided its time to come clean, but its not easy. She had planned to tell him as they drove to their vacation destination, but she just couldn’t make herself begin. Now, at dinner, she still she hasn’t managed to say a word.
At dinner the food looked superb, I tried to eat, but I just couldn’t. I felt like my throat was closing up. I moved the food around on my plate as Tom ate. When the waiter asked if we’d like dessert I quickly shook my head no. Tom often teases me that my favorite part of dining out is the desserts. I could feel him looking at me as I stared at my plate.
“Cassie? You haven’t eating a thing and you're so quiet. What’s wrong?”
My heart began pounding as I realized I’d reached the moment of truth. “I have something to tell you.” I managed to get out.
I don’t know what my face looked like. But Tom immediately asked, “Are you sick, is something wrong?”
I shook my head no. Tom looked at me a minute longer, then finally said, “It’s not something little is it, Honey?”
Again I shook my head no.
I could tell Tom was tense as he paid the bill. We didn’t talk on the way back to the hotel. Tom held my hand as we walked, a good thing. I was fighting the urge to bolt.
Please go by and check our all the other great snippets.
