Did you miss me?! (Say yes!) I’ve been MIA due to a vacation, but I’m back and ready to roll out another six from one of my adult projects.
Close your eyes,” she says.
Mortifying, that’s what this is. As she lifts my shirt over my head, I realize that every time she literally strips me bare, she strips away a little of the wall I’ve constructed. It’s like she sees right through the brick, laughs, and knocks it down one piece at a time. Not sure what she’ll find behind the wall. Not sure there’s anything left.
Kind of a downer, but it gets fun very quickly. 🙂 As always, please be sure to check out the other Sixers on www.SixSunday.com (including my 18+ alter ego, who is no. 32 on the list).
Have a great week!

Evocative six! It’s great seeing a character’s defenses stripped, especially when they know it….

I like his thoughts, and his doubts about himself too.

I totally misread this the first time, first thinking it was from Juli’s POV and then reading “shirt” as “skirt.” I’m all about open-mindedness, but I’m glad I was wrong in this case! Ha ha

Yes, you were missed. 🙂
This is a very nice moment that walks the line between tender and practical.

Of course we missed you! Hope your vacation was wonderful. Lovely snippet to come back with. Sure, it’s not upbeat. But it’s painfully honest and I love those sort of looks into people’s existences. Excellent. Looking forward to the next one!
Love his introspection here. If the character is wondering so is the reader. Well done!

Really enjoy his vulnerabilities here. Makes him not only endearing, but also “real”.
