Being out of town for two weekends in a row makes for low activity on the blog. I’m way behind on my NaNoWriMo story, but I’m continuing to plug away. And so, I have six more sentences to share for Six Sentence Sunday.
The last two weeks have been scenes from Jeremy’s point of view. Although Brett and Jeremy are both heroes of the story, I consider Brett to be the “more” main character. Here’s six sentences from his point of view:
(And remember, it’s NaNo — that means it’s fast-drafted and unedited!)
Jeremy’s hands on his back have always felt good, but Brett could swear they felt extra good today. Not only did the pressure on his aching muscles help to work out the tension, but every touch sent chills down Brett’s spine. More than once he shivered under Jeremy’s fingers.
“Everything okay?” Jeremy asked.
Brett moaned in response. He loved that he could tell Jeremy was smiling just by the way he said it.
The working title is Shots On Goal and the tentative summary is
Brett has just weeks left on his contract with his minor league team to prove he deserves a spot in the NHL when a wrong move aggravates an old injury. When he learns the figure skater he’s admired from afar is also a skilled massage therapist, he sees a chance to save his dream.
Jeremy loves dancing on the ice, but his dream to be a professional figure skater died before it began. To keep his massage therapy business alive, he’ll need to take on more clients, which leaves less time for preparing for the upcoming skating competition. So when Brett offers to pay Jeremy double for his treatment, saying no is difficult even though Jeremy usually refuses to treat male athletes. Especially huge hockey players who sneer at gay figure skaters.
As Jeremy’s hands work their magic over Brett’s muscles, Brett must break through Jeremy’s walls and convince him he’s not the homophobic jerk he appears to be…while also hiding his injury from his coach and his sexuality from everyone but Jeremy.
