Some people believe authors only have one story to tell. Well, I’m happy to prove them wrong. I’m beyond excited for publishing my third book on Amazon!
Since Plenty of Fish is a short story, it’s only 0.99 cents.
Local celebrity painter Mackenzie knows better than to talk to strangers. But, he seems to know so much about her already…
He approached her, extending his hand. “It’s nice to finally meet you.”
Hesitantly, she shook it. “Do I know you?”
He laughed. “You’re funny and pretty.” He held on a few moments longer than necessary before releasing Mackenzie’s hand.
She wrapped her arms around herself, scanning the area. Her bag was placed on the table against the back corner wall. She’d have to find an excuse to make her way over there to grab her cell phone.
Heart thumping, she faked a smile, wondering if he was looking for a hook-up. She wasn’t interested in finding out and just wanted him to leave.
She faced her canvas, keeping the guy in her peripheral vision. How should she play this out? Play along like she knew him? Ask for his name? He must be a commenter on her blog who happened to live in the area. On Mackenzie’s ‘About Me’ page, she revealed the city she was from. Maybe that was a mistake?
“I’m sorry.” He frowned. “I know I’m early, but I really wanted to meet you. You don’t have to be bashful with me.”
“I’m quiet with everyone until I know them.” She kept her voice steady even though he was creeping her out. She loaded her brush with more paint and dabbed the canvas.
“But you know me.”
She looked at him, and studied his face, but still didn’t recollect anything. “I’m sorry, but I don’t.”
