Six Sentence Sunday #19!

Hiiiiiiiiii! Welcome to the circus! I received such a positive response on last week's excerpt that I decided to share another six from the same story, continuing from where we left off. Here's a link to last week's excerpt: Click me! All Action, No Talk, is the charmingly quirky love story of a clown and a mime. Here's the blurb: 


Alice Moore is a clown . . . in love with a mime.

Her parents have never approved of her circus-oriented lifestyle and in effort to deter her from wasting her life clowning around, they set her up with family friend, Grant Humphrey. A practical man. A businessman. And the last man on earth she wants to marry, but here she is, marching down the aisle toward him.

Alex Holiday is a mime . . . in love with a clown.

He’s silently followed Alice from venue to venue on the circus circuit, working alongside her, worshiping her in secret. He’s never been able to tell her how he feels . . . until now. When he catches wind of the upcoming wedding, he vows to put a stop to it. But will his objection be too late?

And now, the continuing story....


She gasped but she didn’t pull away. She felt herself sinking more into his warmth, into the safety of the familiar. Tilting her head, she murmured into his ear, “Object.”
“What?
They met eyes. “I need you to object.”
“But that means I’ll have to…in front of everyone.”

Thanks for reading! Have a fabulous Sunday! :)

  1. I can envision the drama in this scene, but I find myself wishing she would stand up for herself.

    1. I totally see your point. I figured it would be more effective (and ironic) if Alex, who's afraid to use his voice, spoke up and took charge of the situation. In the end they both stand up for themselves. :)
