Okay. okay. I give, lol. I’ll give you a couple more weeks of In the Blind, but then you’re cut off, until it’s published. 🙂
In the Blind (working title), and you can see the past posts from this WIP here. The Logline: When a head hunter finds her dream lover in a night of pitch black unrestrained passion, she fears she’ll never find him again. Fate steps in and throws the two together, but they might never discover the truth and stay in the blind.
Over the past many weeks I’ve shared Jane’s experience at Club Blind and her business opportunity that put her back in touch with Rob after they met last month. Rob isn’t keen on Jane’s job opportunity. It’s for the company his ex-wife works for and Jane doesn’t know that, yet. Last Post Rob decided he needed to tell Jane about his wife. He doesn’t want to lose Jane before he takes her out for the first time. In this week’s post, I’ve skipped two sentences. Rob mentioned his old wedding ring and Jane stated she remembered it from when they first met.
She looked down at his naked finger.
“You noticed?” A flash of joy lit him, he chuckled and took hold of her hands. “Wearing that ring had nothing to do with my ex.” He shook his head and pulled her a little closer. “That ring represented my commitment, a commitment I had to let go.” He captured her sight once more. “I can’t explain it, but keeping it on reminded me of the mistakes I made, mistakes I never want to make again.”
Healing and learning from a lost love, he’s pretty awesome. Jane better say yes if he gets around to asking her out, but Rob has more to share. Will his honesty bring her closer or scare her away? <If you want, you can Tweet That>
Hope you enjoyed my eight today. Thank you so much for visiting me, it means a lot to me that you took the time to visit my little place on the web. Don’t forget to check out the other Weekend Warriors, and Saturday Spankings too.
First mistake he should learn from is to take off his old wedding ring! LOL. But maybe he finally did, since it’s off.
Awesome eight! Love this snippet. I’m hooked. Great job!
Oh wow, Rob…of all the mistakes to make! Definitely take the old ring off first. lol Good choice of snippet!
You tease! LOL Thought we were going to get that secret this week. Oh well. Guess I just have to come back next week, don’t I?
Interesting the sentiment he was attaching to the wedding ring. Another excellent excerpt!
He sounds genuine to me, loved the snippet!
I never thought of the ring along those lines. Nice snippet.
Wow, that makes the ring a terrible burden. Great snippet and a great way to explain, SJ. 🙂
Great 8. I love his honesty. I hope it wins her over, too. 🙂
Love his honesty with her. Makes him a true hero.
That’s not only a telling moment, it’s a sweet one, too!
I wonder if he’s gonna come clean with all of his secrets. And I wonder how terrible those secrets are. Seems like his ex is in the past and he’s ready to move on. Can’t wait to see what her reaction will be.
So he was wearing it for the total opposite reason than she thought. We’ll see what she does next. OR maybe we won’t depending if you post more or not. 🙂
History Sleuth’s Writing mysteries.
Interesting take on a ring and a reminder of mistakes passed.
It sounds like he left the ring on until he put the past behind him, which is pretty cool symbolism. Either way, I love his logic. I’d totally forgive the ring, LOL.
Yeah… word of advice – if you’re divorced, and the ring doesn’t actually mean anything to you… take it off – especially if there’s someone you’re interested in… I wonder what else he hasn’t told her, yet.
Oooh, nice hook!
A very interesting reason to keep the ring on. Hopefully he’s past that now.
That’s an intriguing point of view! I like him a lot already. And yay for giving us a couple more weeks to read more. 🙂
If I were her, I’d be wondering if he’d be referring to me as a mistake in the future.
I like it. I think it’s a very sweet and candid exchange. Good 8! 🙂
